Great article from the New York Times (11/12/11) about three boys from New York who have a achieved a rare feat in chess: the title of Master (before reaching 13!!) To be that young with that title is mind-blowing. Read the detail of this amazing story here.
I had to post this article as chess has been kicking my a** for years, so to see these KIDS master a game that has given me nothing but grief, is nothing short of amazing.
