This coming Saturday morning (Dec 31, 2016, 10 am-12 pm), you are cordially invited to have a Simul & Seminar with Carissa Yip and other world top chess kids. Join in us, bring your own chess set and questions.
At just 12 years of age, Carissa Yip has quickly become one of the US top female chess players. Known for her creativity over the board, Yip has been on a record-shattering pace ever since she learned how to play chess from her father at age 6. Three years later, at age 9, she became the youngest ever to reach the title of Expert. Two years later she broke the record for youngest female to achieve the title of National Master at the age of 11 years old. Along the way to Master, she set the record for youngest female player to beat a Grandmaster for her win against GM Alexander Ivanov in the New England Open a few days before her 11th birthday.
