9-year old Carissa Yip becomes the nation’s youngest chess expert

After only three years since first picking up the game of chess, 9-year-old Carissa Yip can already look down at 93 percent of the more than 51,000 players registered with the U.S. Chess Federation. Carissa, who will be a fifth-grader this fall is ranked in the top 7% of all players registered with the U.S. Chess Federation, and in the top 2% of female players.

Last fall, she competed in an international competition in Slovenia, and in December, she’ll play the World Youth Championships in the United Arab Emirates.

Try and keep up… but I doubt you will.
