(born Mar-15-1988, 31 years old) Zambia

[what is this?]

FIDE Master (2007); International Master (2015).

Richmond Phiri won his FM title for his results at the 37th Chess Olympiad (2006) in Turin and his IM title by winning Zonal 4.3 in April 2015 in Blantyre in Malawi, which he did so with a score of 8.5/9, easily the best result of his career. The win at Zonal 4.3 qualified him to compete in the World Cup (2015) where he met Hikaru Nakamura in the first round, losing his mini-match 2-0 and bowing out of the event.

In the month prior to the Zonal, he won the Nkwazi Closed International 2015 in Zambia on tiebreak with 4.5/6.

  Domdaniel: If Phiri was born in 1998, as his biog says, then playing in the 4NCL in 2001 was precocious.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Domdaniel> FIDE lists him as born in 1988, not 1998... but he still didn't play in the 4NCL. That was Peter Richmond (

  Domdaniel: <Switch> Thanks ... I'd found the 1988 date on the FIDE site, but I wasn't aware of the Richmond error. I think I played him once, in a casual game.
