April 18, 2008
Niplead.jpgThanks to the U.S. Chess Trust , on Monday, April 21, 10-year-old chess master Nicholas Nip will appear on Live With Regis & Kelly (9:00 am EST, WABC). Check your local listings, and watch the youngest master ever play a ten board simul on national television! Opponents will include a 95-year-old and a West Point cadet. With this appearance, Nip follows in the footsteps of Hikaru Nakamura, who appeared on the program ten years ago when he became the youngest master ever at the age of ten years and three months. Nip earned the title at nine years and 11 months.

For more information on Nip and how he broke the record,  read the March 6 CLO article ,  two days after Nip clinched the title in a March 4 Mechanics Chess Club quad, and the follow-up CLO article with Nip's critical victory over Ronald Cusi.
