Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-19-14  Ramin: This guy will be in the top 10 in the world by 2018.
Dec-24-14  waustad: He is one to watch, though the top 10 that soon is a rather bold prediction. There are a number of players born this century who show a lot of promise. It would be interesting to know why he's had a large recent rating gain. Perhaps it's a new coach or training regimen.

  Penguincw: Congrats to young M Amin Tabatabaei for remaining one of just 5 players still perfect at the Nakhchivan Open. He is the only FM player to hold this honour (the rest are 3 GMs and an IM). He entered the tournament as the 30th seed at 2420. To get to 2/2, he beat WFM Nino Khomeriki (2228) with black and then GM Luka Paichadze with white. However, tomorrow he has to face 2nd seed super-GM Etienne Bacrot (2704) with <black>. Good luck!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Like expected, he lost against Bacrot, but rebounded with white wins in R4 (against 9th seed Baklan) and R6 (5th seed Mamedov). Overall, he finished with 4.5/9 (+4,-4,=1) and 32nd place. He also gained 13.7 rating points. In addition to a 2544 TPR, it should be good enough for an IM norm.

Aug-14-18  fisayo123: He's a talented player but I think 2021 is a more realistic schedule.

Not quite. :)

And so we return to check on this guy in 2021. :)

  OhioChessFan: I don't know if it's 100% true, but I've noticed that if you aren't winning all your age group World Championships, you aren't going to be elite. The 2nd in the U14 was the clue here. I might take a look at the current top 10.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: That didn't take long. I started with Carlsen, and his age group record isn't all that great.

Then it's not true. ;)


Regardless, Happy Birthday Tabatabaei.
