At the Vezerkepzo GM Mix tournament, Mishra defeated grandmaster Leon Mendonca in the thrilling ninth round to earn his third and final norm having earned his first two over the previous two months.
Breaking records is something Mishra has become accustomed to.
When he was just seven, he became the United States Chess Federation’s youngest Expert.
He became the youngest National Master when he was nine, and then at 10 years, nine months and 20 days old, he became the youngest ever International Master.
The previous record was held by Russian grandmaster Karjakin in 2002. He went on to unsuccessfully challenge Magnus Carlsen in a 2016 World Championship match.
