Young FM prodigies Tani Adewumi and IM Yagiz Erdogmus face off

FM Tani Adewumi should play against other young IM chess sensations Yagiz Erdogmus at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time/4:00 p.m. Central European Time, November 20 in the next episode of his regular ChessKid series “Tani vs The World”.

Erdogmus is an 11-year-old IM from Turkey who recently won the 2022 ChessKid Youth Speed ​​Chess Championship in convincing fashion, beating CM Ilan Schnaider 10-4 in the final. He is also the highest rated player in the world aged 12 and under (2453).

Adewumi’s goal is to become the world’s youngest GM, and he’s had a remarkable journey to become a chess master.

He recently achieved his third IM standard last weekend (after reaching his second in July this year), but still needs to win one more than one Swiss and reach 2400 to receive the title. After this recent event, he is now among the top 12 in the world for 12 and under.

The match between these two talented young players will be broadcast on Chess.com/TV, twitch.tv/chesskidand youtube.com/chesskidofficial.

“Tani vs. the World” is an ongoing series of practice matches in which Adewumi plays titled opponents. Invited opponents so far include IM Justus Williams, IM Kostya Kavutskiy and GM Jesse Kraai.

Hosting and commentary will be provided by FM mike klein (FunMasterMike) and Nigarhan Gurpinar (also known as Naycir on Twitch).


Be sure to tune in at 7:00 a.m. PT/4:00 p.m. CEE on November 20! You can follow the event on Chess.com/TV, twitch.tv/chesskidand youtube.com/chesskidofficial.
