Samuel Reshevsky (1911 - 1992) learned to play chess at the age of four. As a 9-year old, his first American simultaneous exhibition was with 20 officers and cadets at the Military Academy at West Point. He won 19 games and drew one. He also toured the country and played over 1500 games as a 9 year old in simultaneous exhibitions and only lost 8 games
