Mumbai: Thirteen-year-old Mumbai boy FIDE Master Kush Bhagat got the better of 22 budding chess players in an Open Simul Exhibition chess match organised by South Mumbai Chess Academy at the Phoenix Mills, Lower Parel, here on Thursday.

Kush Bhagat of ASB School played one opponent after another, making some quick moves. Kush played such a fast game that six of his opponents were outwitted in less than 20 moves, while 15 resigned gradually over one hour and 15 minutes.

Kush is currently one of the highest-rated players in his category in India and in the Elite Club of the World’s Top 20 Junior players.

“Kush is highly dedicated with a good work ethic. He travels across the world for tournaments and aspires to become Grandmaster in 2 years’ time,” Kush’s coach Balaji Guttula of SMCA said.

Kush started playing chess at the early age of 3 after being enchanted by how the pieces moved. After beginning to compete in tournaments in the city, he moved to the national and international levels in no time. He has several prestigious wins under his belt and also beat a Grandmaster at the age of 10.

The youngster also holds the record of being the first Indian to win triple gold in an official Asian tournament.
