A 9-year-old California boy has become the youngest-ever chess "master" in the United States.

Samuel Sevian, of Santa Clara, earned the title after a match in San Francisco.

The United States Chess Federation, the governing body of competitive chess, gave him a rating of 2,201 after the Dec. 11 match. A rating of 2,200 qualifies a player as a "national master."

Samuel beat the previous record-holder for youngest chess master, Nicholas Nip, of San Francisco, by 11 days.
