|Apr-14-13|| ||kwi: And congratulations for yet another GM norm (no matter what the result of round 9 is)! I wonder if she's gonna permanently be a WGM.|
|Apr-14-13|| ||waustad: With 2 wins and 3 draws against GMs so far and a 2700+ performance rating I think that the GM title will be well deserved. She has at least one norm already: http://ratings.fide.com/title_norms... and has a 2500+ rating. It shouldn't be long.|
|Apr-15-13|| ||kwi: She now has (already!) 5 GM norms (or 4 if the 2010 Team championship one is discounted for whatever weird reason) for a total of almost 50 games!
And congratulations for the 2nd equal in Dubai Open.|
|Apr-15-13|| ||waustad: Maybe she just has to apply. There are a number of people who have norms already who aren't listed on the FIDE site. The site's boilerplate: The norms have been sent by the federations/organisers, but the norms have not yet been checked, they may not be valid.|
It says there are 3, but I don't know what the colors are in the rightmost 2 columns: http://ratings.fide.com/title_norms...
There are columns for pic and ct and I don't have a clue what they mean.
|Apr-16-13|| ||Bridgeburner: <waustad>
FIDE's info is not user friendly. Here we have a typical GM application that was granted: http://ratings.fide.com/title_appli...
The right hand columns are both grey so it seems clear that the green colour coding is not about verification.
As to whether the norms are valid or not: it would be weird if they were not as all three events were FIDE-run and organised events, and would be therefore instantly verified and verifiable.
One would think.
|Apr-16-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Yet another impressive performance by Ju Wenjun. I guess we will have a new female GM soon. Good news :) |
Btw, Gunina is applying too.
|Apr-16-13|| ||Bridgeburner: <Natalia Pogonina>
Do you know why she doesn't already have a GM title? She seems to have 5 GM norms.
|Oct-28-13|| ||John Abraham: Nice smile, she seems to have a pleasant personality :)|
|Mar-21-14|| ||waustad: She's taken over the lead in the Chinese women's championship with a win in the penultimate round against Lei Tingjie. Yang Shen also won so those 3 will be the top 3, but the order will be determined tomorrow.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||waustad: Here we see why she isn't yet a GM: http://lopota2014.fide.com/en/round...|
It seems that the aribter's signature is missing on one of the norms. Couldn't a fax machine take care of this?
|Jun-22-14|| ||kwi: That's quite lame, tbh. Especially with 3 of her norms being organized directly by FIDE.|
I wonder whether there would be a back count to other people who could've gotten their norms by means of playing her. Most likely not.
|Jun-30-14|| ||notyetagm: Ju Wenjun|
It's amazing to me that a player this strong and this young (23) did not win any World Youth Championships.
|Jul-02-14|| ||alexapple: <Bridgeburner> In fact, Ju Wenjun already got 6 norms.|
Besides the 4 norms registered in FIDE website and the norm obtained in Lopota, in 2011, she won Hangzhou International Women Grandmaster Tournament. But this norm doesn't registered in FIDE. Very strange.
|Aug-23-14|| ||technical draw: <alexapple> Right, she should already have the full GM title.|
|Aug-28-14|| ||notyetagm: Ju Wenjun is such a cutie. :-)|
|Sep-04-14|| ||notyetagm: <dumbgai: Ju Wenjun wearing a cute mini-skirt today. Isn't this illegal?>|
|Sep-05-14|| ||notyetagm: FIDE Women's Grand Prix Sharjah (2014)|
<dumbgai: Ju Wenjun wearing a miniskirt again, this time pink...>
Oh, yes! -> http://sharjah2014.fide.com/images/...
|Sep-14-14|| ||42eyes: Apparently she'll be a GM soon.
Interview & great pics...
|Nov-14-14|| ||sonia91: FIDE finally approved the GM title.
|Nov-17-14|| ||twinlark: After six GM norms! Now that she's been officially awarded the GM title, it's retrospective to 2011.|
Wonder why the delay?
|Nov-17-14|| ||waustad: <it's retrospective to 2011> So how does that effect other people who played her in the interim? Could there be more norms that get shaken out of the bureaucratic dust? One problem getting titles for people who mostly play in women's tournaments is that so few women are GMs or IMs that getting the required number of titled players to get a norm is more difficult. Also several who could get the IM title don't bother, which could hurt possible opponents chances to gain norms.|
|Nov-18-14|| ||twinlark: Good questions. I suppose it depends upon the players affected and their federations to notify FIDE. I don't think FIDE would initiate the adjustments, merely enable them.|
|Dec-12-14|| ||notyetagm: A lovely pic of the beautiful Ju Wenjun.
|Jan-29-15|| ||Bruce Graham: She spanked Rapport in Gibraltar.|
|Jan-31-15|| ||waustad: She took a bye on her birthday. I hope it was a pleasant day.|
