|Jan-12-14|| ||twinlark: There was some comment earlier that young Alek was the world's youngest FM, but as yet his player card shows he is untitled. Does anyone know what is happening here?|
|Jan-14-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Maybe related to FIDE fees|

|Jan-26-14|| ||offramp: Good one. I have a friend who lives in Balham called Ruaraidh and when I see him the first thing I ask is, "What's the story in Balham, Ruaraidh?"|
|Jan-26-14|| ||RedShield: Your comedic impersonations tend toward obscurantism, not to say pretension. I think this a Celtic trait.|
|Jan-28-14|| ||pinoymaster77: bbking mentioned by NCFP Sec-Gen as possible prospect. Annual goals muna, step by step. Maybe get to 1800 as interim goal... |

|May-28-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Sayang wala ulit sa Asian Youth qualifiers, di malaman ngayon sino current top U10 player ng PHI.|
|Aug-17-14|| ||twinlark: Looks like he has an FM title after all. I wonder what that was all about?|
|Aug-17-14|| ||perfidious: Does the U-8 winner receive an automatic FM title?|
|Aug-17-14|| ||twinlark: <perfidious>
The bio explains where it came from. The issue was that after this result, there was a title then there wasn't. Now it's back. Quite strange.
|Aug-17-14|| ||perfidious: <twinlark> In my mind, it devalues the title of FM to award one in an under-eight competition when the requirement otherwise is for a player to attain a rating of 2300.|
|Aug-17-14|| ||Shams: <perfidious> Out of curiosity, do you feel the same way about awarding the GM title to the World Senior Champion? I guess I have a double standard, because that doesn't bother me so much while I share your objection to the U-8 champion being granted the FM title.|
|Aug-17-14|| ||perfidious: <Shams> It is curious, but perhaps two or three days ago, I was thinking of some of the players who are thus GMs: Vladimir Okhotnik and Albert Z Kapengut both ex-Soviet players, came to mind.|
To answer your question, not sure: Okhotnik and Kapengut may well have made GM had they been able to play more events outside Mother Russia, but we shall never know.
My first reaction on seeing the bio of young Alekhine was one of scepticism that a player with such a low rating could possibly be a FIDE Master-figured the article was hyping up another prodigy.
|Aug-17-14|| ||twinlark: I might jump in here.
It's a mystery. If they must award titles directly, there should be some correlation with the general strength of these titles.
Otherwise, if they must award titles to juniors directly, why not CM and WCM titles, as these are the bottom rungs on the title ladder?
I see no justification, other than political (wouldn't that be a surprise?), for the second tier to be awarded to junior players who are way below the 2300 rating standard, and in fact may not even have a rating at all.
|Aug-17-14|| ||twinlark: Here are young player with FM titles who are unrated. Awarded the title on the basis of winning continental U8 championship: http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?... and http://ratings.fide.com/advaction.p...|
|Aug-18-14|| ||perfidious: In the case of the World Junior winner, at least, no harm in bestowing GM upon that player--if they have not already made it. The time had long since gone when an automatic IM title was representative of the victor's skill level.|
