Darwin Yang-- but I had a little trouble with the red eye fixer. His eyes do not normally glow white and drip blue.

I was fortunate enough to play Darwin when he was 8 years old, and just a bit weaker than I was. When he is a GM, I'll be able to be one of those old chess guys who says "I beat Darwin Yang (when he was 8 years old)".
