|Nov-25-15|| ||waustad: He has one IM 9 game norm listed on the FIDE site so far. That doesn't mean that it is the only one he has earned, but that's all that they have registered. If I read the rules correctly, he needs 27 games of norm worthy tournament play (except for some very specific exceptions), so he probably needs tomorrow's game too for it to be a full norm. An 8 game norm (which he's probably already achieved) might not do the trick. He also needs to achieve a 2400 rating. At his age and development, it's just a matter of time.|
|Dec-26-15|| ||Caissanist: Chessbase confirms that Liang made his third and final IM norm in November, which would make him the youngest IM in American history: http://en.chessbase.com/post/awonde... .|
|Dec-26-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: I guess with his talent, it's not a wonder. ;-) Congratulations!|
|May-30-16|| ||sonia91: Yesterday he beat with black top seed Lazaro Bruzon Batista (2681) in round 2 of the <American Continental Championship>, which is underway in San Salvador, El Salvador: http://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2016...|
Top 4 finishers will qualify for the 2017 World Cup.
|May-31-16|| ||belgradegambit: Today he drew a short game with GM Erenburg.|
|May-31-16|| ||waustad: With his win tonight against Matias Perez Gormaz, he could be tied for the lead, depending on the final result of http://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2016..., which looks drawish according to the silicone monsters.|
|May-31-16|| ||waustad: Not to mention that he's on the pace for a GM norm.|
|May-31-16|| ||waustad: I spoke too soon, the Peruano Emilio Cordova won his game so Liang is tied for second.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||HeMateMe: He wonders why drunks sing his name on New Years Eve?|
|Jun-02-16|| ||waustad: Even after his loss today to Lenderman, his tpr is 2609. He's played more than enough GMs, so he's still on the path to a GM norm.|
|Jul-11-16|| ||Luceana: Awonder is a nice kid, and strong player. Although his father is a loudmouth, and a piece of work. Hopefully the father doesn't turn into another Rustam Kamsky, that tries to dominate over the boy.|
|Jul-17-16|| ||LucB: He came in clear second today at the 2016 US junior closed championship. A fine performance by the youngest player of the group.|
|Jul-17-16|| ||fisayo123: I saw all the games live. Really impressive chess from the young phenemonem.|
|May-31-17|| ||cro777: By earning his third and final GM norm at the Chicago Open 2017, Awonder becomes the 2nd youngest American chess grandmaster in history, at 14 years, 1 month, and 20 days. |
The 26th Annual Chicago Open was held May 25-29, 2017 in Wheeling, Illinois.
In 2015 Awonder became the youngest US international master in history.
|May-31-17|| ||qstone: Congratulations to Awonder!|
|Jun-01-17|| ||Ironmanth: Bravo, Awonder!|
|Jun-01-17|| ||fisayo123: Congratulations to the kid.|
|Jun-01-17|| ||ketchuplover: seconded|
|Jun-01-17|| ||waustad: Congratulations! There is still some paperwork to do. He still only has one norm listed on the FIDE web site. That often means that they haven't yet filed the paperwork and paid the fee. FIDE jerked Ju Wenjun around for over a year over one signature by a FIDE official if I recall the details correctly. Let's hope that they get through the bureaucracy more rapidly.|
|Jul-17-17|| ||cro777: GM-elect Awonder Liang is the 2017 US Junior Champion!|
|Jul-18-17|| ||markz: Congrats to Liang the US Junior Champion!|
|Aug-10-17|| ||cro777: It's now confirmed - Awonder becomes youngest grandmaster in the world!|
"In the second presidential board meeting of 2017, FIDE confirmed Awonder Liang's grandmaster title.
This makes the 14-year-old American the 10th youngest grandmaster of all time, and the youngest in the world today."
|Aug-12-17|| ||ketchuplover: the future of american chess lies in the mind of this youngling|
|Aug-13-17|| ||ColeTrane: if he decides to stay in chess....no doubt he can do anything he puts his mind to|
|Feb-09-18|| ||zborris8: This 14 year old just beat Caruana in 15|2. ProChessLeague. PGN (remove the space "6 k1/" in the fen Current Position). |
