This 4-Year-Old Chess Star Beats Grandmasters
Published on November 23, 2017
Misha Osipov is the youngest chess star in Russia.
While kids of his age are usually playing with action figures, Osipov is playing chess on a grandmaster level. He is only 4-years-old and has already faced off with world champions.
But outside the competition, his family says he is a regular child who loves animals, science, and having fun.
Various TV shows have featured Osipov as guest and fellow chess grandmasters are impressed, but behind the sponsorships and tournaments, he is still just a kid.
