Sep 13, 2022
Carissa Yip on The Chess Experience
 

Carissa is a shining star.

The youngest American woman to earn the IM title. 

Winner of the 2021 US Women’s Championship.

Top-ranked female US player in 2019.

If that weren’t enough, Carissa is the youngest female ever to beat a Grandmaster (she did so at age ten.)

Even with so many accomplishments, Carissa remains humble and down-to-Earth.

And she has a great sense of humor. 

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • What caused her sudden rating climb?
  • The ups and downs of her 5-year journey to win the US Women’s Championship. 
  • Her first-ever experience competing in the 2002 Chess Olympiad.
  • Will she try to earn the GM title while in college?
