Young Chess Expert Plays 13 at Once

13 Chessboards were played simultaneously by Omar Cunningham at the Putnam Triangle in Brooklyn, located at Fulton St. & Grand Ave. Omar is a 14-year-old high school student, chess prodigy and chess expert. He began playing chess 3 years ago and became an Expert (one level below Master) in April 2015. He had his humble beginnings at a local library and was immediately (within a week) identified by a chess master as someone with promise. He then transferred to the Brooklyn Chess School (I.S. 318) where he went on to assist his school with winning the Grade National and City Championships for 2 straight years. He plays chess around the city and now plays with an online team. We expect to see great things from this young man in the chess world.
