This is how our family felt yesterday when the Troff family informed us that Kayden Troff had become a National Master. We were honored to have met Kayden at the North American Youth Championship 2009 in Mazatlan, Mexico because we knew about his achievements at such a young age. We can witness that his parents have really invested not only time and finances into his upbringing but a strong spiritual foundation to go with it.
We celebrate this milestone in Kayden's life and we know that his transition from the National Master to other titles, whether USCF or FIDE (he is also a FIDE Candidate Master) will be very brief.
We invoke blessing from above on NM Kayden Troff from Upbeat Abed, Chess Mom Claudia, Christian Music Singer Faith Munoz and Woman Candidate Master Claudia E. Munoz.
