We’re extremely excited to include GM Samuel Sevian to our roster!
Starting his chess playing career at the age of 5 he went on to become the youngest USCF expect at 8 years and 2 months; breaking the previous record by 10 months. The record breaking didn’t stop there though as he went on to then break the NM record at a little under 10 years before breaking the US record for youngest IM a few months shy of his 13th birthday. Yet why stop there? After that he proceeded to break the US record for youngest GM only a year later at 13 years, 10 months, and 27 days.
Since last playing on the Sopranos, Same had another milestone year. In 2022 he joined the exclusive 2700+ club after a win 1.5/2 result against GM Wesley So alongside a 1/2 result with GM Fabiano Caruana. Below is his crucial win against Wesley that helped put him over 2700:
As a top board for the Passers we’re delighted with the strength he brings to the team and are looking forward to seeing him continue his excellent run of play.
