|Jul-28-12|| ||kwi: You beat me to it first, <twinlark>. |
Actually, I don't get how FIDE ignores it. They've listed it themselves:
"≥9 games GM *Performance* counts as 13 games." in the Olympiad section.
Performance means that she didn't have to have the required number of GM opponents. But anyway, there have been plenty of irregular things before, so I shouldn't be surprised if that Olympiad norm is not acknoweldged.
|Jul-28-12|| ||twinlark: |
FIDE probably realised they'd made a mistake. It wouldn't be the first time.
I'm still trying to figure out how Zhansaya Abdumalik has been put forward for a WGM title when her peak rating is less than 2200. Yet on the title application page they list her highest rating as over 2300, which isn't reflected in her ratings history.
http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?ev... and http://ratings.fide.com/title_appli...
|Aug-21-12|| ||kwi: I suppose the one who entered the information into the application page simply copied the html code from the previous entry (i.e., from Kulkarni Bhakti), but didn't change the highest rating element. This way to edit the application page allows duplicated entries as you can even see on the same page (Gomes, Ines) and, even worse, incorrect summary in general.|
On the actual application, it is stated correctly that her highest rating is 2193. Their goal can simply be that they want to get a WGM-elect for her, which is totally ok. This is similar to Natalia Zhukova, who was a GM-elect for several years.
|Aug-21-12|| ||twinlark: <kwi>
As far as FIDE is concerned, I have no doubt you're right. What puzzled me was Abdumalik being spruiked as the youngest WGM since Yifan, as if the title will take retrospective effect.
Seems like a communications stuff up with whoever wrote that story, as it seems the same story was recycled and propagated throughout the internet.
|Jan-31-13|| ||Kikoman: Happy 22nd Birthday WGM Ju Wenjun! :D|
|Feb-05-13|| ||whiteshark: Women's world No 15 Ju Wenjun has found herself stuck between the Rock and a hard place after an airline refused to allow her to board a flight to London following a tournament in Gibraltar because she did not hold a transit visa to enter the UK....|
|Apr-13-13|| ||waustad: She has had a tremendous tournament in Dubai so far, being tied with the leaders with 6 points in 7 rounds: http://www.chess-results.com/tnr974...
This includes a win over GM Sargissian.|
|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...
