|Jan-12-09|| ||Augalv: "I have never beaten a GM before, so it's a momentous occasion for me. All that I did was believe in my game. I was a pawn up in the opening itself and by the middlegame I had two-pawn advantage. All that I needed to do was play safe and I managed to win." |
Hetul Shah, after beating GM Nurlan Ibrayev in the first round of the seventh Parsvnath International Open Chess tournament, becoming the youngest ever Indian to defeat a grandmaster.
A kid to look out for.

|Jan-13-09|| ||blacksburg: nice game, young man, nice game.|
|Jan-13-09|| ||alexmagnus: But he lost in the two rounds following this game (to opps rated 2200ish and 2000ish). His next opp is unrated. I guess despit this sensational first round win he will perform around his usual 1800...|
|Jan-14-09|| ||sheaf: onething is for sure when an 1800 player defeats a GM that the kid has amazing insights, because GMs even if the blunder they usually dont make it easy for such low rated players..they produce toughest defences and usually, if not always, there are swindles..is it the lowest rated player ever defeating a GM ??..youngest for sure, but with players so young ratings make little sense since their ratings change in a matter of days..so much of learning happens to them, who knows maybe even during the course of a game..I remember vishy himself said the same about carlsen two years ago..|
|Jan-14-09|| ||Karpova: Fouts' rating at that time was also quite low: M Fouts vs N Firman, 2003|
Rating: http://main.uschess.org/datapage/ra... (1700 to 1800 but note that this is his USCF rating!).
He had no Elo rating at that time: http://ratings.fide.com/hist.phtml?...
|Dec-30-12|| ||vinidivici: where is he now?
Whats his rating and how the progress?
|Dec-30-12|| ||vinidivici: any news?|
|Dec-30-12|| ||waustad: <vinidivici>Look at his rating card. There is a link right above the biography box. I didn't see any news stories since 2011, but that is not a big surprise. Most of the tournaments real people play in don't get any press at all. He got noticed because he was so young when he beat the GM. If you really want to delve, try finding an Indian rating somewhere. They might be available on line. His last FIDE update was in March. His rating of 1979 is good for a kid, but not very newsworthy.|
