Gaudium Chess Challenge

Get ready for the Gaudium Chess Challenge 🏆, a challenging event where two renowned chess players will face off.

The Inaugural Challenge

For this inaugural edition, we had an epic showdown between generations: Brazilian Grandmaster (GM) Krikor Mekhitarian and Argentinian FIDE Master (MF) Faustino Oro.

At just ten years old, Faustino, known in Argentina as the "Messi of Chess," is a true prodigy, being the youngest player to reach the 2300 FIDE rating mark and also achieve a norm for International Master (IM).

Krikor, at 37, is a two-time Brazilian champion, currently ranking third in the national FIDE standings, and has twice participated in the Chess World Cup.
