Jinshi Bai's IM norms were won at the First Saturday Tournament in Budapest in April 2013 and at the Asian Continental Championship 2013 in May 2013, the latter counting as a double norm because of its continental status. He is the 3rd IM born in 1999 after (now GM) Wei Yi and Murali Karthikeyan and at the World Junior Championship (2014) has won (1) a GM norm.
