Bangladesh Get their Youngest Fide Master in 10-year-old Fahad

Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone, 

Mohammad Fahad Rahman, a fourth grader, has become Bangladesh’s youngest Fide Master. The World Chess Federation on Thursday acknowledged his feat. The 10-year-old, who had earlier won the title of National Sub-Junior Chess Championship, is the 13th Fide Master of the country. He secured 2025 rating, necessary for Fide Master title, in the ASEAN Age Group Chess Championships, held in Thailand in June.

After the acknowledgement, Fahad said: “I was hopeful of receiving the title. I’m happy to have got the acknowledgement. The title will inspire me to do better in future.”

“Now my target is to be a Grandmaster. I hope that I’ll soon get the Grandmaster title. I have to try for that and I’m ready for that.”
