8-year-old girl terminates Arnold Schwarzenegger in chess game

COLUMBUS, OH (KTRK) -- It's not everyday that you get to meet and play chess with the "The Terminator," but 8-year-old chess phenom Emma Cheng took Arnold Schwarzenegger head-on. The game took place Saturday at a kids expo in Ohio, according to CNN.

Emma is the fourth-highest rated chess player under age 9 in the United States and ranks third out of all grade students in Ohio, CNN reports.

Schwarzenegger, a former bodybuilder and California governor, happens to also be a pretty good chess player. However, the Columbus Dispatch reports he played a few moves before forfeiting the game to Cheng.
