AHMED ADLY
(born Feb-19-1987, 27 years old) Egypt

[what is this?]
Grandmaster (2005) from Egypt--the first GM in Egyptian history, and the youngest-ever from Africa. He was African U20 champion in 2001 where he obtained his first IM and GM norms, and finished the 2004 World Under-18 Championships in third place. He qualified for the FIDE World Championship Knockout Tournament (2004), but lost the first-round match, after rapid tiebreaks, to Sergei Rublevsky. In 2005 he won the Arab Junior Championship and qualified once more for the knockout phase of the FIDE cycle, but he was again eliminated in the first round of the FIDE World Cup (2005), this time by Ruslan Ponomariov. He became the first player from the continent of Africa to win the World Junior Championship (2007). Egyptian champion in 2007 and 2009. He qualified for the World Cup (2011), but was forced to withdraw after the first game due to illness. His misfortune continued at the World Cup (2013), for which he qualified, but was unable to attend due to travel difficulties.

Oct-16-07  cbpatzer: Great performance by Adly. Let's see if he can keep up things. As far as i am aware the official site is http://www.armchess.am/WJGCC07/wjgc... and there were frequent reports on http://www.chessdom.com However, no picture of Adly playing on both sites.
Oct-17-07  Ezzy: Great stuff. A world champion from the African continent! Nice victory from a player who seems to blow hot and cold. Joint first at the 2006 Reykjavic open with a 2704 performance, then a terrible Corus group C performance losing 22 rating points in that 1 event.

He can put in 2700 performances and also lose often to 2200 - 2300 players.

He was blowing hot in this comp though. This puts his chess career well back on track!

Oct-22-07  pawnofdoom: <cbpatzer> Check www.chessbase.com. They have pictures of him. And look at bidmonfa's link below
Oct-25-07  Riverbeast: When I visited Cairo I checked out a cool old chess club they had - maybe one of Adly's haunts: Mirrors and an old wood interior, it looked like it had been built in the 20s or something. Of course they served coffee and tea, and everyone was smoking. I remember playing blitz with the locals and making some fast friends there. They seemed to love chess. I'm sure Adly has brought them great pride.

Good for you, bro! Keep it up.

Oct-26-07  averroes02: congratulations for ahmed adly from egypt, the first african champion in the history of this continent.I know this player when he play in olympics but I was not sure that he can win this championship and he did it, you are incredible and famous and genius my son. your father from algeria: AMMAR.

  Karpova: Report on and interview with GM Adly:
http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

<I read in a German chess magazine that several years ago you were playing in a tournament in Nigeria, and that all the participants got malaria. Is it true that you survived because your next tournament was in Greece and you had access to a good hospital?

<Yes, unfortunately. It happened at the African Olympic games. I was very sick and almost died. I was 60 kgs before contracting malaria and 32 kgs after. So you can imagine how bad it was. This stopped me from playing good chess for two years. However, I was more upset to lose two of my team mates, who were less ill than I was. I thank God I am still alive.>>

  sallom89: he must be rated 2650+ in no time ,i was totally shocked of some games that he played. Just awesome.
Nov-21-07  superuser171: Thanks for the link Karpova. It's nice to see chessbase having an article about Adly..
Nov-21-07  hovik2003: It is good to see that Arabs are playing chess again, a game was played and flourished in Baghdad courts during muslem rule of MiddleEast from 7th-13th century on.
Nov-22-07  pawnofdoom: Adly is going to play in the 2007 FIDE World Cup. I hope he does well. He was chosen as a player from Africa. Though he is rated pretty low, beign only 2500 compared to all the other 2600s and 2700s there, he should fare well.
Nov-26-07  papynchase: He just drew with Black against Kamsky in 83 moves. A chessbase caption of the picture of them playing against each other, "Kamsky managing just a draw...", sounds very belittling.

  ahmadov: Unfortunately, this guy did not qulify... I wanted to root for him...
Nov-26-07  Udit Narayan: <papynchase> Chessbase are always biased.

http://www.chessdom.com/news/adly-e...

Dec-10-07  cotdt: this guy was able to fight kamsky to a draw, which is better than what carlsen was able to accomplish!
Dec-26-07  superuser171: Here's a link to a nice video interview with Ahmed Adly..he seems to be a cheerful guy..

Sep-29-08  shintaro go: What happened to this guy? He's rated 2586 in the October 2008 rating list and a former world junior champion. Where's he now?
