Abhimanyu Mishra, 12-year-old from the United States, broke Sergey Karjakin’s 19-year-old record to become the youngest-ever Grandmaster in chess on Wednesday, June 30.

 

12-year-old Indian origin boy, Abhimanyu Mishra became the youngest-ever Grandmaster in chess on Wednesday. Abhimanyu, who comes from New Jersey, broke the record of 12 years and 7 months set by GM Sergey Karjakin in 2002.

 

Abhimanyu, who is 12 years, 4 months, and 25 days, picked up his third GM norm in Budapest after having already crossed the 2500 Elo rating barrier. He achieved the feat at the Vezerkepzo GM Mix tournament in Budapest.

 

On August 12, 2002, Karjakin secured the Grandmaster title at the age of 12 years and 7 months. Mishra, born on February 5, 2009, secured the highest title in chess by defeating 15-year-old Indian GM Leon Luke Mendonca with the black piece, according to a Chess.com statement.

 

He secured a performance rating higher than 2600 over nine rounds, which constitutes a GM norm. Having stayed in Budapest, Abhimanyu won his first GM norm in the April Vezerkepzo tournament and the second at the May 2021 First Saturday tournament.

 

Notably, Abhimanyu Mishra had earlier broken the record of India’s R Praggnanandhaa to become the youngest international master. Mishra won the title when he was 10 years, 9 months and 20 days in 2019, going past Praggnanandhaa who was 10 years, 10 months and 19 days when clinching the IM title.

 

Karjakin wishes Abhimanyu: Nice start to his big career.

 

“Somehow I am quite philosophical about this because I felt like it has been almost 20 years and it is really too much! It had to be broken. Sooner or later I was sure that it would happen. I was completely sure that one of the Indian guys would do it much earlier. Somehow I was very lucky that it didn’t happen,” Karjakin was quoted as saying by Chess.com.

 

“Yes, I am a little sad that I lost the record, I don’t want to lie, but at the same time I can only congratulate him and it’s no problem. I hope that he will go on to become one of the top chess players and it will be just a nice start to his big career. I wish him all the best.”
