|Dec-29-09|| ||Albertan: Daniel Naroditsky of California (he has the FIDE master title) and a rating of 2375, defeated GM Alexander Shabalov in round 3 of the 2009 North American Open in Las Vegas. Naroditsky has also drew his game with GM Alexander Yermolinsky in the same tournament, and in the next round (round 7) Naroditsky plays GM GM Dmitry Gurevich! The standings of this tournament can be viewed by going to the following website:|

|May-08-10|| ||HeMateMe: Interesting concept: A 14 year old star collects his homework assignments, and puts them forth as a book:|
"Daniel quickly moved through the ranks at the Mechanics', earning his Expert's title at 10 and his Master ranking the following year. He came to international attention when <he won the World Youth Under 12 Boys Championship> in Antalya, Turkey, in the fall of 2007. Daniel is now a FIDE Master closing in on the International Master title."
What is particularly interesting about this book is Daniel's motivation in writing it. It began with the self-realization that despite his rapid advancement in chess, his positional understanding was lacking. As Donaldson writes, "He set out to correct this deficiency in a most ambitious way by collecting classic examples on a variety of positional themes and subjecting them to extensive analysis. Having done this Daniel then clarified things in his own mind by putting into words what he had learned not only from the classics but his own games."

I believe that Murray Chandler published a book in 1975 when he was also 15, but I don't think it was on the same level as "Mastering Positional Chess".

Winner of First Saturday GM July 2010 (and 1st IM norm):
|Jan-16-11|| ||twinlark: Congratulations are due for winning his third IM norm at the Berkeley International (2011). He is now an IM.|
|Jan-31-11|| ||wordfunph: When he was about 10 years old, Daniel Naroditsky was playing first board in an adult tournament. At that time, he was still relatively unknown on the United States chess scene. His parents walked him to the playing hall and directed him to his chessboard. A few minutes later, he came back crying, telling his parents that the Tournament Director would not allow
him to sit down --- Daniel was told that he was in the wrong section, and kids were playing elsewhere.|
