Title USCF Master
FIDE rating 2150 (April 2008)[1]

Nicholas Nip (born March 10, 1998) is a United States Chess Federation (USCF) National Master (NM). He is the youngest USCF Master in history, obtaining a rating of 2207 at the age of 9 years, 11 months and 26 days.[3][4][5]

Nip's feat broke the record held for a decade by fellow chess prodigy Hikaru Nakamura. However, the new record is not without controversy because matches were included in the rating calculations, prompting allegations of manipulation.[6]

Nicholas Nip (born March 10, 1998) is a United States Chess Federation (USCF) National Master (NM). He is the youngest USCF Master in history, obtaining a rating of 2207 at the age of 9 years, 11 months and 26 days.[2][3][4]

Nip's feat broke the record held for a decade by fellow chess prodigy Hikaru Nakamura. However, the new record is not without controversy because matches were included in the rating calculations, prompting allegations of manipulation.[5]. Since accomplishing this record, Nip no longer plays chess, and due to his inactivity no longer appears on the bi-monthly top 100 lists for his age.

On April 21, 2008, Nip played ten simultaneous games on Live with Regis and Kelly. He defeated nine and had one draw.[6]
