He started his chess career as the greatest child prodigy in chess history, playing nearly master strength chess when he was eight years old. He went on a tour first of Europe and then America, giving simultaneous chess exhibitions against adults and winning almost every game. Having started as the world´s youngest master, Reshevsky went on to become the world´s oldest. Reshevsky remained a world class player even after he had passed 60 years old. He defeated Grandmaster and US Chess Champion Larry Christiansen just before he died at age 81.
