The Tonight Show with Cory Evans

Jay Leno: 'My first guest, a remarkable young boy, I read about him in the paper the other day. He's a five year old chess champion.'

Cory Evans - Chess Master (9:13) • The United States kindergarten chess champion said, 'There was over five thousand million kids in the tournament.'

Was this the article that caught Leno's attention: Game Boy : At 5, He's Won a Kiddie Chess Title and Can Probably Beat You (LAtimes.com, 7 December 1992)? Elsewhere on the web we learn that Cory is the son of IM Larry D. Evans.
