|Jun-18-04|| ||salokin: This is Vinay S Bhat |
|Jan-10-06|| ||Joshka: He's on Fred Wilson's show tonight on chess.fm|
|Jul-19-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Vinay S Bhat
BHAT, Vinay S.
|Jul-25-07|| ||yalie: Bhat won (or at least tied for first) the Balaguer Open Chess ahead of a bunch of GMs.|
|Jul-25-07|| ||Ragh: The title win at Balaguer Open in Spain also brought Vinay Bhat his 3rd and final GM-norm along with the required 2500+ rating to be crowned as the new chess Grand Master.|
|Jul-25-07|| ||arunjangity: congratulations, it is quite rare to have another gm in the usa!|
|Jul-27-07|| ||Eric Schiller: Congratulations Vinay! He finally got his 3rd GM norm. He could have been a GM much earlier but like most Bay Area chess talent, he decided to have a real life.|
|Jul-27-07|| ||dx9293: He reached 2500? He's only 2450 on the July FRL. I'm not disupting it, just curious.|
|Jul-27-07|| ||dx9293: Hmm...on the website they give his TPR as 2587.|
|Jul-28-07|| ||Ragh: <dx9293> His TPR was over 2600 after nine games, until that draw in last round brought it down to 2587. So, he must have gotten a nine game GM-norm.|
|Jul-31-07|| ||dx9293: I see. Thank you for clearing this up.|

|Aug-03-07|| ||arunjangity: unfortunately, we are wrong. uschess says bot does not have the 2500 rating at any point, and has 50 points to go. no gm title.|
|Sep-22-07|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: The United States Chess League still lists Bhat as an IM. While I'm on the subject, I wish the USCL would post more games to this website. Bhat has been quite an impressive GM killer and plays with considerable elan, cheerfully sacrificing pawns against players rated almost 300 points higher, no matter how nebulous the compensation seems.|
|Sep-22-07|| ||dx9293: <An Englishman> He is still an IM. He needs some Elo points to make GM.|
USCL games are not rated by USCF or FIDE, so they would not be listed here.
|Jan-24-08|| ||DarthStapler: Wait so is he an IM or a GM?|
|Aug-03-08|| ||myschkin: . . .

If at first you donít succeed, skydiving isnít for you.
The economy is a key factor in the Ukrainian chess boom. Playing chess is a prestigious occupation and you can earn money with it. Additionally, you travel around the world. So, a professional chess player has respect, unlike in Europe or the USA. By our standards, chess is a good career.í (Grandmaster Alexander Moiseenko in a ChessCafe.com interview).Ē
Although I find the average chessplayerís income assumed here ($90,000 per year, in constant 2005 dollars)
<really?! what average he mean those 2650 elo rated player ?>
to be a bit overly optimistic, the compiled metrics still paint a clear picture of the usual distribution of top players in the world. The following table is taken directly from the paper (Table 3): R/Y is the relative income ratio (R = $90,000 for chessplayers, Y = avg annual income); WEB is the number of internet users per 1000 people (higher the WEB metric, the lower the training cost); TR is the number of FIDE-recognized tournaments (higher the TR, the lower the training cost).
|Jun-21-09|| ||timhortons: Ill do my best to get a picture of GM Bhat in the ongoing Quebec chess championship.|
Hes a real nice guy.
|Jun-21-09|| ||fm avari viraf: My hearty Congrats for your achievements & keep going. I belong to Gujarat, Valsad.|
|Jun-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: so he's an IM|
