John M Burke
Jergus Pechac, who jumped from 2114 to 2540 in just one list: https://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?e... (his Fide rating chart); chess24 article in Spanish: https://chess24.com/es/community/jo...
|Sep-15-16|| ||pinoymaster77: In the on-going 13th IGB Dato Arthur Tan International Open Chess Championship 2016, doing ok so far with 5/6, TPR of 2560 vs ELO of 2375|
|Oct-31-16|| ||pinoymaster77: http://en.chessbase.com/post/chigor...|
|Nov-01-16|| ||sonia91: This kid achieved a GM norm, at 11 y.o. (!), in the 2016 Chigorin Memorial in St Petersburg, Russia, as reported by ChessBase's article linked by <pinoymaster77>.|
|Jan-12-17|| ||sonia91: The wunderkind applied for the IM title: http://ratings.fide.com/title_appli...|
|Aug-22-17|| ||mprodrigues: I think he just notched a GM norm in the 24th Abu Dhabi International Chess Festival.|
|Aug-22-17|| ||alexmagnus: That would be his second one, right?
He already missed the record age for a GM title (that is, he is older than Karjakin was at his title), but the second place in the record books, currently held by Negi, is still within reach.
|Aug-22-17|| ||tamar: Would be great if chessgames made a page for Abu Dhabi Festival. |
Nihal Sarin, a year older, also played, but had a more modest result than Nodirbek, who finished second to him in 2014 when they were mere youths of 9 and 10!
|Aug-22-17|| ||fisayo123: <alexmagnus> Judging by your comment history, you have an infatuation with these type of records. At the end of the day, not all these players are competing in similar type of events in terms of quality and quantity. |
I know that Praggnanandhaa plays more tournaments with GM norm possibilities than Abdusattorov for instance since the former has a sponsor who provides travel and other financial support.
So whether Abdusattorov becomes a GM at 13 or 14, it's really not that serious.
|Aug-22-17|| ||tamar: Just looking at who Abdusattorov has beaten already by age 12 makes me think he is already GM strength.|
Andre Zhigalko GM 2571
Benjamin Bok GM 2615
Kirill Stupak GM 2564
Mads Andersen GM 2556
Luka Paichadze GM 2581
The last two at Abu Dhabi while going undefeated in 9 rounds and having a performance rating of 2608.
|Sep-28-17|| ||sonia91: He tied for first in the 14th IGB Dato Arthur Tan Open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with 7/9: http://www.chess-results.com/tnr297...|
|Sep-28-17|| ||Absentee: Perhaps it's also time for a profile picture update.|
|Oct-27-17|| ||columbeau: the kid is doing very well at the CHIGORIN MEMORIAL, 5,5/6 with two gm scalps ! Sethuraman being one of them. impressive|
|Oct-29-17|| ||markz: This kid become the second youngest GM in history|
|Oct-29-17|| ||NightKnight: Congrats to the kid, wonderful achievement considering he does not come from traditionally rich chess culture. Will be a force to reckon with in the future, the potential is clear.|
|Oct-29-17|| ||sonia91: Congrats on becoming GM at 13!|
|Oct-29-17|| ||alexmagnus: Uzbekistan produced Kasindzhanov, so it's not like the country had no chess culture at all.|
|Oct-29-17|| ||alexmagnus: Kasimdzhanov*|
|Oct-29-17|| ||fisayo123: <alexmagnus> "traditionally" rich chess culture. Strawman as usual.|
|Oct-30-17|| ||columbeau: Congratulations young man !|
|Oct-30-17|| ||epistle: Happy to see No-Abs finally developing some muscles|
|Oct-30-17|| ||ketchuplover: I second that emotion|
|Oct-30-17|| ||tamar: A great talent, time for an updated picture. He looks about 8 here.|
|Nov-02-17|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Abdusattorov for becoming the 2nd youngest ever GM.|
Here's a video analysis of one of his games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlG....
|Mar-02-18|| ||Tal1949: It is a long climb from world number 636 (active players) to the top 10, but I am hoping he can achieve it. Either way it will be fun to watch.|
