Went over to Comfest today, and as I was walking back to my car, I came across a 10 year old girl and her father raising money for a trip to Texas, the reason, so that she could go defend her national Chess championship. It so happens she is a six-time champ. Wow!!!! 6 years ago this girl was 4.
Funny thing is a pretty confident adult decided there was no way this young girl could beat him in a game of chess, sure enough she did, needless to say I was pretty impressed by her quick thinking at such a young age.
