"Awonder Liang Youngest Ever Master"

Story at Chess Life Online.  Awonder and Adream live in Wisconsin, and play frequently in Chicago events. They are really nice kids, incredibly talented, and very interesting players.

I wouldn't be surprised if Awonder's amazing record is beaten by another player in the next year or so.  And I wouldn't be surprised if that player is from Illinois.

Congratulations to Awonder and his family!

I am happy for him, but Ted Williams wouldn't have dropped out after the second round! Know what I mean?

Not even the nine-year-old Ted Williams?

Awonder is playing this weekend at the Philadelphia Open: he's already beaten an IM.
