[what is this?]

Grigoriy Oparin became a Candidate Master in 2007, an FM in 2009, an IM in 2011 and a GM (2013).

Oparin’s first FIDE-rated event was the Moscow U16 Championship of 2005, in which he played at the age of 8. His inaugural FIDE rating of 1980 was at the age of 8 years and 6 months, and in 2007, he was awarded the Candidate Master title for placing =2nd at the U10 European Youth Championship behind the winner Kirill Alekseenko, and alongside fellow talents Mikhail Antipov, Daniil Yuffa, Jan-Krzysztof Duda and Avital Boruchovsky. He won his 1st IM norm when he took 2nd place at the Marianske Lazne 2009 - IM – B in the Czech Republic, during which event he also defeated IMs for the first time, namely Sebastian Plischki, Amon Simutowe and compatriot Viktor Volodin. Oparin made further strong gains in the 2009 Moscow Open (6/9), the Moscow region Spring 2009 IM (9.5/14), which between them boosted his rating to 2350 by his 12th birthday. He scored his 2nd IM norm at the Autumn in Chess Livingroom V. Dvorkovich 2009, where he placed =1st. Late in 2009 in the RSSU-18 IM, he again placed =1st, winning his 3rd IM norm; this event also saw him defeating GMs for the first time: Kazakhastan’s Jakov Sergeyevich Nesterov and Moldova’s Alexey Khruschiov.

In 2009, Oparin debuted in high level team competition when he played on board 5 for Gostinaya Dvorkovicha in the Russian Team Championship: Higher League (2009). He scored his 4th and 5th IM norms at the 2011 Aeroflot Open and at the First Saturday IM in April 2011. In September 2011, following solid results at the Czech Open and at the Olomouc Chess Summer 2011 - A2 - GM tournament, his rating finally reached 2400 to claim his IM title. There followed =4th at the 13th International Chess Festival in Trieste while his undefeated 6.5/9 (including 4.5 points against 7 GM opponents) at the Chigorin Memorial in October 2011 earned him his first GM norm. He scored 6/9 in the Marienbad Open 2012 - A1 - GM tournament in Marianske Lazne in the Czech Republic in January 2012, narrowly missing a GM norm. His =2nd (5th on tiebreak), at the 2012 Aeroflot Open Division B, just fell short of winning him another GM norm. Also in the 2011-12 season, Oparin played board 5 for his team Rakita Belgorod in the Russian Team Championship (2012) scoring 4.5/7 (+2 =5; TPR 2535). In May 2012, he came 3rd at the World's Youth Stars (2012). In July he scored a respectable 6/9 at the GM Open in Pardubice, Czech Republic, and in August he contested the World Junior Championship (2012), scoring 7.5/13 (par for rating). In October, he scored a par for rating 6/9 at the Chigorin Memorial 2012. In January 2013, he won his 2nd GM norm at Tradewise Gibraltar (2013) In September 2013 he won his 3rd GM norm at the Trieste Open where he came clear first with 6.5/9.

Oct-08-11  Stonehenge: GM in 2013?
Oct-31-11  Korifej: Result in Chigorin mem. is enough for gm norm
Premium Chessgames Member
  twinlark: As long as he turns up to play in the last round of Gibraltar, Oparin has earned his 3rd GM norm.

That's not the end of the story, though, as he must actually draw with his 9th round opponent Tkachiev (rated 2650) to bring his rating to 2500.

If he loses, he still gains the norm but will be a few points shy of 2500 at about 2495.

Congratulations to GM-elect Oparin! He drew with Tkachiev.

Apr-06-13  Bridgeburner: He's not a GM elect as he only has 2 GM norms. Aeroflot 2012 came close, but didn't get there.
Premium Chessgames Member
  twinlark: Looks like he won his third norm at the Trieste Open:
