Awonderlead.jpg9-year-old Awonder Liang broke 2200 this weekend at the Midwest Open Team Chess Festival at the Dayton Chess Club. Find the MSA rating report from the event here. Pending final confirmation from the USCF ratings department, this makes Awonder the youngest master in US history. The previous record was held by World Youth gold medallist Samuel Sevian, who was 9 years 11 months and 24 days old when he became a master. Awonder was 9 years, 11 months and 14 days old. 

Find a key win by Awonder below from the MOTCF and another fun victory over a NM at the Michigan Class Championships in January. 



Awonder will also be attending the Philadelphia Open later this week with his brother Adream. We hope to catch him for a US Chess Scoop video, so keep your eyes open for that and more insight into his amazing accomplishment.
