http://asia.news.yahoo.com/040717/ap/d83se9g00.html

Bobby Fisher is a genius, but a completely weirdo.

O.... K...? Yes, quite the wierdo, I can't say I'm opposed to him being arrested

Meh, that's nothing. In Norway, we've got this kid that became Grandmaster when he was 13

Well be that as it may, Bobby Fisher is still the greatest (many believe) chess player to ever live, plus he came to fame because of the cold war matches against the russian top players. here's a list of the youngest children to become Grand Masters.

Bobby Fischer 15 years, 6 months, 1 day
Judit Polgar 15 years, 4 months, 28 days
Peter Leko 14 years, 4 months, 22 days
Etienne Bacrot 14 years, 2 months, 0 days
Ruslan Ponomaryov 14 years, 0 months, 17 days
Teimour Radjabov 14 years, 0 months, 14 days

i find it so facinating that these kids can think a that sort of level at such a young age. Maybe it's because they still have such a vivid imagination which allows them to seem possible positions and counters that are only mastered otherwise with an extreme amount of experience and brilliance. It kinda relates to the Brainpower of kids discussion. http://forums.utopiatemple.com/showt...ght=brainpower

I've been thinking about child geniouses and prodigies and such, and wondering "Where does it get them?" I mean, it's awesome that all those chess guys are so great at such a young age, but does that make them any more awesome when they are 55? I don't think so. And look at sports. Athletes can dominate even professionally when they are young, but when they are 28 and everyone else is 28, does it really matter how awesome they were when they were 10 years younger? Not really....

Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

im a good chessplayer..for average standards.. but these guys are just awesome.. i dont think my 16 year old brain would even stand a chance against those 12 year olds.. especially those speedchess players.. ughh!

i still like the way those "old guys" are playing.. Garry Kasparov is one of my favorite

anyone know of any sites that tests your chess rating? i heard the ELO was the best but its too professional for me.. lol.. i want a free online one.. it wouldnt matter if its a little bit off..

No but they can win enough money while they are young to last them for a lifetime.

It matters because at the age of 12 your brain is not nearly as developed as that of a full grown adult. You also don't have the fine tuning and experience they do either. Therefore it is considered amazing when a child can play at the level of an adult genius when he has had much less training, experience and brain development. If you've ever spoken to an average 12 year old then you too would be amazed if one of that age could soundly whop one of the best adult players at chess.

I think kids have the "unfair" advantage of having less worries before, after and during the game..

for example, before the game, you owe someone money. most kids don't think about those things, yet.

after the game, there is no criticism for the child who loses, but if the older one loses then he'll get ridiculed.. :P

a child's main focus during the game is the game itself, while older ones think more stuff not really connected to the game itself.
