|Sep-24-17|| ||ketchuplover: Got bit by the spider today :(|
|Sep-24-17|| ||tamar: Fate slipped him a mickey.|
|Oct-01-17|| ||norami: If my calculations are correct he needed just half a point more to get a GM norm at Isle of Man.|
|Oct-02-17|| ||ndg2: He got 5 1/2. He needed 6 1/2 against the field he played (see FIDE regulations table 1.72 https://www.fide.com/component/hand... and his results http://www.chess-results.com/tnr303...)|
|Oct-05-17|| ||alexmagnus: Praggnanandhaa's milestone wins:
First 2000 and first 2100 beaten: P V Nandhidhaa (2166) in November of 2012
First 2200 beaten: R Praggnanandhaa vs N R Visakh, 2014 (our page gives Visakh's rating in the game as 2300, but FIDE says 2282)
First 2300 was beaten in the same tournament: R Praggnanandhaa vs V Borisenko, 2014 (2316). Overall he gained 158 rating points in those 2014 World Juniors.
First 2400 beaten: Sharma Himanshu (2420) in June of 2015
First 2500 and 2600 beaten: Karen H Grigoryan (2616) in May 2016 - and not, as I myself thought, Axel Bachmann for 2600
First 2700 beaten - R Praggnanandhaa vs D Howell, 2017
|Oct-13-17|| ||ketchuplover: What's his current GM norm status? tyia|
|Oct-13-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Zero point zero|
|Oct-13-17|| ||norami: Like Bluto.|
|Nov-16-17|| ||dwavechess: GOOD LUCK..about to break karjakin's record if winning world junior championship|
|Nov-16-17|| ||dwavechess: and Jeffery Xiong's record also|
|Nov-17-17|| ||technical win: How to pronounce it: <prag-na-nand-a> -|
but people like to call him <Praggu> or simply <Pragg>.
|Nov-17-17|| ||perfidious: <technical win....but people like to call him <Praggu> or simply <Pragg>.>|
Especially in the latter instance, one might say that it is <Praggmatic> of them.
|Nov-20-17|| ||aliasniamor: Why does the World Junior (and World Girls) Championship not have a page on chessgames ? Very interesting games there and future top players there for sure.|
|Nov-22-17|| ||aliasniamor: Why is this page so silent ? Pragg has his first GM norm secured, is still in contention for the World Junior title and thus a direct GM title.|
|Nov-22-17|| ||morfishine: <aliasniamor: Why is this page so silent ?> Because no one can pronounce his name|
|Nov-22-17|| ||scholes: One win away from gm title in world juniors|
|Nov-22-17|| ||beatgiant: <morfishine>
You won't be silent if he ever plays Nikolas Theodorou because a "pragmatist vs theorist" pun is inevitable.
|Nov-22-17|| ||dwavechess: currently third, two rounds left|
|Nov-23-17|| ||perfidious: <beatgiant: <morfishine>
You won't be silent if (Pragg) ever plays Nikolas Theodorou because a "pragmatist vs theorist" pun is inevitable.>|
No-one would miss that chance. (laughs)
|Nov-23-17|| ||aliasniamor: He most likely needs 2 wins if he wants to become the World junior champion which would grant him the GM title. He already had a great event and a first GM norm is something he can be proud of. I'm sure he can grab a second norm before march and the deadline for the record, but to get the third as well could prove harder. GL anyway to him|
|Nov-25-17|| ||LucB: Excellent performance at the World Junior! Almost 2690 (2nd highest after A. Tari), and a half-point behind the leaders.|
That DOES qualify for a first GM norm, yes?
|Nov-25-17|| ||markz: Yes, he get a 11-game GM norm, which is better than the 9-game one.|
|Dec-04-17|| ||ketchuplover: please enlighten us grasshopper. thank you|
|Dec-06-17|| ||Whitehat1963: This kid might have a bright future indeed, in about four or five more years. By then, he might break the world’s top 20 or even top 10. Who holds the record as the youngest player to break into the world’s top 10. I’m assuming it belongs to Carlsen or Fischer. Kramnik and Kasparov might also be high on that list. But I can’t help wondering at what age people like Capablanca, Morphy, Reshevsky, Tal, and others might have broken into the world’s top ten. Anyone have a clue?|
|Dec-07-17|| ||sac 4 mate: Chessmetrics has a pretty handy tool for ranking players by age for the pre-Elo eras if you're interested in "youngest-ever" type of records. If we're talking about official FIDE lists only, Carlsen first cracked the top 10 on the April 2008 list aged 17 years and 3 months, and seems to be the youngest to achieve that distinction. Before him, it was Kramnik, who hit the top 10 in January of 1993 six months before he turned 18, and might still hold the record if FIDE had computed its rating lists as frequently as they do today (they only did them twice a year back then). A year earlier, Kamsky also made the top 10 a few months before his 18th birthday.|
