Robert Hungaski was born on December 8th, 1987 in Stamford, Connecticut to an American father and an Argentine mother. He moved to Argentina at a very young age after his parents separated, which is where he learned to play chess at the age of six, in an after-school program.
He began taking chess seriously by the time he was twelve, when he decided to become a chess professional. Nevertheless, he did not neglect his formal education and, in fact, reached some of his best results amidst his academic obligations. He achieved the International Master title by the age of 18, in his senior year of high school, and his Grand Master title at the age of 24, in his senior year of college.
Robert recieved his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Connecticut in May of 2012 with a double major in Political Science and Philosophy, and a double minor in English and Middle Eastern Studies. He is also certified by the State of New York as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
Robert currently resides in New York City and continues to strike a balance between chess and academics. He is presently enrolled as a Post-Baccalaureate student at the City College of New York, where he is fulfilling the necessary Pre-Med requirements to take the MCAT and apply to medical school.
Robert has had extensive experience both as a player and a coach. Below are some of the highlight from his career as a player and coach:
