10 year kid in Chess Olympics

Sharanya Iyengar at the age of 10 got selected in Kenya's women's team which recently participated in Chess Olympics in Istanbul . Such selection is in itself surprising but still more surprising was her performance as she scored 6/10 points. Maximum for any player from Kenya. She won 4 games ( including one walk over ) and drew 4 games losing only 2 games. Though most of time they were playing lower boards but she got 4 FIDE rated opponents and scored 1.5 / 4 with rating performance of around 1650.

You can find some articles about her by clicking old entries at the bottom of page.

Budding Kids - Prabhanjan

Prabhanjan who is not yet 7 years old played in State Under - 11 tournament recently. Most of them were few years older and some of them already had FIDE ratings. But Prabhanjan played very well and scored 4 / 5 points ! Good effort by him. He finished fourth. He is improving quickly in spite of the fact that he rarely gets chance to play OTB chess and only playing chess on net.
       If he gets chance to play regularly he is sure to become a strong player in his age group.

Story of Chess Playing Monkey

Every visitor wanted to play a game with first world champion Paul Morphy . So Morphy taught this monkey to to play with weaker players. Once an English player was playing chess with this monkey while Morphy was in an other room. Suddenly he heard  monkey screaming and rushed back to room. He saw that monkey was sitting on ceiling fan and was screaming. "What's the matter ", he asked the player. " I am really sorry ", said player "He check-mated me and I was so upset that I hit him in anger". "Please ask him to play another  game I promise not to touch him again", English man pleaded. Monkey was reluctant to play with him but agreed to play when Morphy offered him a banana. After some time Morphy again heard monkey's shout and saw that he was again hanging from fan. Morphy turned to other player. "I did not touch him and don't know what happened ", replied Englishman " after making his last move he started screaming for no reason". Morphy looked at the board and said "Oh, he saw this mate in three combination and was afraid you might hit him again".
