Geography Genius Lilly Gaskin - A Potential Chess / Go Prodigy?

Lilly, for her age, demonstrates a phenomenal ability to identify countries on a world map. I suspect her precocious skill is related, at least in part, to encouragement from the parents as well as a desire to be praised. The video of the interview on Oprah gives some background to the development of Lilly Gaskin's amazing ability.

Now if only she could be encouraged to play CHESS or GO!
