7-Year-Old Chess Prodigy gives “Very Epic Mate” to Chess Master

I recently observed an online 3-minute blitz chess game between 7-year-old chess prodigy Tihon Chernyaev (white) from Ukraine, and FIDE Master Eduard Miller (black) from Germany. The opening was a Sicilian Dragon, where the 7-year-old managed to seize an initiative just as his FIDE master opponent was about to pounce on white’s ever sensitive square c4. While watching the game live I suspected Tihon Chernyaev’s play was strong, and once I checked the moves with an engine afterwards my suspicion was confirmed. Observe a sneak peak into the mind of this 7-year-old chess talent as he delivers a “Very Epic Mate” to his FIDE Master opponent after only 23 moves.
