Kazakhstan chess-player Zhansaya Abdumalik will take part in the chess tournament that will be held on November 17-27 in Brazil, Tengrinews.kz reports, citing Almaty-based Kazakh-British Technical University's press-office. The 11-year-old girl is a three-time world champion and is the youngest international Chess Master in the world. “International experts expect Zhansaya to become one of the most prominent chess-players worldwide. She might also outshine Judit Polgar, the all-time chess star, who became Grand Master when she was 15,” the press-release reads. Earlier Zhansaya was awarded a World Chess Federation Master title by the World Chess Federation. The chess-player is the best among young Kazakhstan and Central Asian male and female players. Zhansya said that he dream is to beat the world record of Chinese Hou Yifan and become the world champion among women and to bring glory to Kazakhstan. Earlier Tengrinews.kz reported that Abdumalik has got a KBTU scholarship. The University would bear all Zhansaya's expenses for traveling to the world chess tournaments. Besides, Zhansaya might get into the Guiness Records Book as the youngest chess champion.
