16 year old Hikaru Nakamura is the youngest person other than Bobby Fischer (he was 14) to win the US Championship.

What about Schneider? It's reported he lost a game because he forgot to switch off his phone and someone rung him. :lol:

PS Well done to Nakamura. He seems like a genuinely nice kid great backing up after his performance in the Triploi Restricted Invitational.
