Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-16-15  Caissanist: There are, confusingly, two different Andrew Tangs who are US juniors. There is a nine year old who is rated 1493, but that's not the same guy as the person drawing and defeating 2400 players in the games given above. Those are from a 16 year-old of the same name who is himself rated 2475.

Jun-13-17  waustad: He is doing quite well in Medallin in the Continental Championships. A GM norm watch seems in order, since he's playing his third GM now and has a tpr over 2600 so far.
Jun-14-17  BIDMONFA: Andrew Tang

TANG, Andrew

Jun-15-17  waustad: The FIDE site has him with 2 GM norms already, though I don't know what all the data in the boxes mean. One is clearly a 9 game norm, but the one for the N A Junior Championship from Kitchner, Canada looks different from others I've seen on the site, so I don't know how many games it is worth. He could get up to an 11 round norm in Medallin, but he may only need 9. As of now he's playing in round 8 and is still over 2600 tpr.

  sonia91: <waustad: One is clearly a 9 game norm, but the one for the N A Junior Championship from Kitchner, Canada looks different from others I've seen on the site, so I don't know how many games it is worth.> Winning a continental or a sub-continental junior (i.e. U20) championship earns the winner the IM title and a 9-game GM norm:
Jun-16-17  waustad: <sonia91> Thanks. A draw against Axel Bachmann tomorrow would then be enough to get him to the point where he would just need a rating over 2500 live and some red tape and fees to get the title.
Aug-15-17  notyetagm: Bullet monster.
Nov-27-17  EvanTheTerrible: Congratulations on GM.

Jul-06-19  tonsillolith: It looks like Tang has reached a higher bullet rating on and/or Lichess than both Carlsen and Nakamura. Even if you don't give much weight to such fast time controls, that's still quite an achievement!

He goes under the pseudonym <penguingim1>.

Jul-07-19  zborris8: Spellchecker sorry. <tonsillolith>
Jul-12-19  tonsillolith: <zborris8> It's possible I got something wrong, but I'm certain that Tang's Lichess rating had broken 3200 when I looked at it. I thought I read something too. Apologies, if only I could undo undue sensationalism.
