Jun-11-13  cruiseyleemorph: I may as well be the first to comment on this kid, I have played him myself and won but he was only 8 then. He is a really nice kid and one to watch. Here is a clip of him on tv. And he is on channel 4 tonight so I am sure this page will get lots of comments ;)

Dec-21-13  MUNGOMYERS: Josh i saw you Child Genius your awesome keep studying hard hope you become GM soon great to see you play the Dragon my favorite opening for black !
Dec-21-13  Nina Myers: <Mungo> Genius is overrated.
Feb-06-14  MarkFinan: Okay.. I have a few things in common with this kid. He has the same problem with the white pieces as I do with the black, lol or at least that's what it looks like. I was pretty good at his age too. But *how* is he a CM?! What does candidate master mean when you're still 10yr old and playing to his level because he's not much better than I was at that age. If the CM title is the same in England as say the LM does in the good old US of A then it doesn't really mean anything! I don't want to take anything away from this lad but how come I didn't have a title like that back in 85-86 when I was beating everyone in my age group?? Whoever he is I hope he sticks at it anyway. 😃
Jan-05-15  cruiseyleemorph: MarkFinan he got CM title for being 3rd in Europe for his age. I doubt you did that lol.
