You may be interested in this article about Carissa Yip, the USA’s highest-rated 11-year old girl. Her current rating is 1951, well above the UK’s highest-rated 11-year old girl, Anita Somton (currently at 1474).
Claims that Carissa is a ‘Master’ appear exaggerated, unless it’s a US, not FIDE, qualification. Good publicity, though.
There will be no more articles/blogs until Thursday 21 May.
