The country's first woman international master and 20-time national chess champion Rani Hamid lost out to 10-year-old Nilava Chowdhury, who made her league debut Saturday in the National Women's Chess League.

Rupali Bank Krira Parishad's Nilava, the youngest player in the league, was making her first appearance in the competition, against the oldest player of the league in 75-year old Rani, representing Bangladesh Police.

Rani, who conceded her first defeat in four matches, heaped praise on Nilava, who has a Fide rating of 1392.

Rani said: "I made a big mistake. I got beaten by a girl. Actually, I was in a position to win from the very beginning, but made a big error in the end. I took her lightly and paid for it. But she played outstandingly. I see a lot of potential in her."

Nilava was introduced to chess by her father Salil Chowdhury, who plays the game himself, while her elder brother Swarnavo Chowdhury features the national age-level chess side.
