Chess Grandmasters

 

With the advances in computer technology, access to latest chess games and theories is quick and easy. This allowed thirteen chess prodigies in the last fifteen years to earn grandmaster titles before their fifteenth birthday. Playing chess to earn the chess grandmaster title is a challenging goal. Less than one percent of chess players gain the master and grandmaster titles. Grandmasters (GMs) have a great deal of commitment, determination, and they practice many hours every day. They memorize various openings, middle games and end games. GMs travel to as many as fifty countries during their chess career. The youngest ever females to become grandmasters are Judit Polgar of Hungary and Koneru Humpy of India, who became GMs at 15 years old. There are less than 1,500 GMs in the world. It is interesting to note that thirty percent of the world’s top 100 rated chess players are in the age category of twenty to twenty-five. Garry Kasparov of Russia became the youngest ever World Chess Champion in 1985 at the age of twenty-two.
