Moscow (Russia), Feb 23 (ANI/ TV BRICS): Roman Shogdzhiev remembered his 10th round of the world classical chess championship among boys under 8 years old. The outcome of the whole competition was decided at that time. An unexpected tactic in a difficult situation - defending his position with a bishop - gave the young chess player his victory even before the finals. Having finished the tournament without a single loss, the athlete defeated Sharm El-Sheikh of Egypt, with a cup and a medal. The award is now part of a large collection and next to it are the prizes from the Russian and Asian championships. The young athlete himself sets ambitious goals. In the coming years, Roman wants to achieve the title of the youngest grandmaster in history. That's why he puts all his strength into every chess competition.
