In a stunning display of skill at the 2024 Bullet Brawl, Argentine chess prodigy Faustino Oro clinched a remarkable victory against the world’s top-ranked Grandmaster, Magnus Carlsen, adding another prestigious win to his record after beating Grandmasters Daniel Naroditsky and Hikaru Nakamura.

On the evening of March 23rd, the chess world watched in awe as the 10-year-old sensation outmaneuvered Carlsen in a rapid-paced match.

Seizing upon a critical error by Carlsen to trap his knight, Oro compelled the Norwegian chess titan to concede defeat in a high-stakes bullet game that concluded in just 38 seconds over 48 moves, earning him the nickname “Messi of Chess” from his fans. 

At a pivotal moment in the game, Oro remarked, “If I lose from this position, I can retire from chess.”

Broadcasting live on his YouTube channel, Oro skillfully navigated through the competition until facing off against Carlsen, the pinnacle challenge of the tournament. 

Bullet chess, characterized by its brisk pace where each player is allotted only one minute on the clock without additional time, demands rapid strategy and sharp focus. The tournament’s format is straightforward: players are matched randomly in an online setting, striving to secure as many wins as possible within two hours, with the highest scorer emerging victorious.

Despite a field teeming with grandmasters, including bullet chess aficionado GM Hikaru Nakamura who ultimately secured the tournament’s top spot, Oro’s sensational triumph over Carlsen has captivated the chess community. 

Finishing 21st out of 156 competitors with a score of 108 points, Oro’s victory against the world champion has spotlighted his exceptional talent and strategic prowess.
