  Knight13: <Mahendrakumar: Can Harikrishna become the World Chess Champion? His style of play has changed of late.> Ask that again when he reach 2700+. :)
Aug-05-06  aw1988: Not the world chess champion, surely!?
Aug-05-06  yalie: he can certainly become A world chess champ
Aug-05-06  aw1988: Not in ten million years.
Aug-06-06  RONY1001: I think,Harikrishna may be a world chess champion,one day............ I think so guys.................
Aug-06-06  Ragh: What makes <aw1988> think Harikrishna would never be a WC? Can you justify your observation <aw1988>?

Aug-06-06  aw1988: Harikrishna is a good GM. For that I admire him to a point. The problem is that, well, the *world champion* is very hard to achieve...
Aug-06-06  harifan: Harikrishna will make it. No two ways about it!
Aug-06-06  aw1988: Apparently, Harikrishna's best rating is in the high 2600's. Which is good, but I don't think he could beat even Rublevsky in a set match, much less Adams, or Polgar, Leko, much much less the world champion.
Aug-06-06  percyblakeney: <Not in ten million years> Harikrishna is a top 25 player on the way up and only 20 years old, so one should maybe never say never. Aronian wasn't top 50 when he was 22 years old in April 2004 but top 3 two years later...
Aug-06-06  DCP23: This is a pointless discussion because one can't prove that Hari will become WC until he becomes WC and one can't prove that he'll never become WC until he dies. For what it's worth however (not much I know) I agree with <aw1988> that Hari just doesn't have what it takes. Feel free to disagree.
Aug-06-06  EmperorAtahualpa: For those who don't know, Marx György was a famous nuclear scientist and one of Hungary's most famous scientists. He died in 2002, hence this year his fourth memorial tournament.

Here's a picture: http://kincsestar.radio.hu/panoptik...

And a small biography, for those who can read Hungarian: http://www.ase.hu/marxgy/2006/marxg...

Aug-06-06  Larsker: <For those who don't know, Marx György was a famous nuclear scientist> That R in his first name is pretty nifty - reminds me of the film "Mad Marx".
Aug-06-06  Ragh: <Harikrishna is a top 25 player on the way up and only 20 years old...>

To add to what <percy> mentioned above. Here are this former World Junior Champion's achievements from last year onwards.

Bermuda Invitational Tournament 2005, FIDE Category 17, Shared FIRST with Boris Gelfand.

Tiayuan Chess Tournament 2005, FIDE Category 15, Clear FIRST.

Crown Group of Essent Tournament 2005, FIDE Category 16, Clear FIRST.

Pamplona International Tournament 2005, FIDE Category 16, SECOND (0.5 behind Ponomariov)

Reykjavik Open 2006 - Shared FIRST

And now. A clear First place in this 4th Marx Gyorgy Memorial tournament in Hungary.

<aw1988> What else can you expect from a person who accomplished the above feats as a teenager (He turned 20 only a couple months ago).

Aug-06-06  Ragh: <aw1988> All I meant to convey from the above passage is not to compare an youngster with the experienced Anand's generation (30+ age) players yet :)
Aug-07-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <That R in his first name is pretty nifty - reminds me of the film "Mad Marx".>

LOL! Yes, and he's also not to be confused with Marxi López, the football player.

Aug-07-06  Ragh: Finals standings of the Marx Georgy tournament.

1. Harikrishna 6˝
2. Efimenko 5˝
3. Wang 5
4. Almási 5
5. Berkes 4˝
6. Ács 3˝

Aug-07-06  harifan: <What else can you expect from a person who accomplished the above feats as a teenager (He turned 20 only a couple months ago).> Good point, <Ragh>!
Aug-07-06  Caissanist: Of course Harakrishna can be world champion. To gain that title you only have to be as good as Rustam Kasimdzhanov, and he is already better than that.
Aug-08-06  Ragh: Here are the Presentation ceremony pics from the tournament website. http://ase.hu/marxgy/2006/kiiras_GM...

Aug-11-06  aw1988: <Caissanist> The 2004 FIDE WC was a joke, of course.

I did, however, overreact. I don't see him becoming world champion but the possibility is there.

Aug-11-06  TheBB: The last six rounds of this tournament were all draws, except _one_ game! I haven't looked at the games, but that really makes me sick.
Aug-12-06  CloudDragon: I haven't looked at the games-that really makes me sick.I'm going over them.
Sep-18-06  harifan: <To gain that title you only have to be as good as Rustam Kasimdzhanov, and he is already better than that.> Good point!
