He became one of Iranian chess's "New wave" players, which included many talents, some of whom are GMs and teammates. In 2001 he won the Iran Championship with a score of 10.0/11 and a 2712 performance. After entering the Sharif University of Technology, Iran's top engineering school, to study Chemical Engineering, <despite being only rated 2350 at the time, <he became an IM and GM within 18 months. <This leap included a run of three GM norms in three tournaments in a row in 27 days in 2005.>>>

His interests include books,movies, old songs and music, and stand-up comedy, and his favorite thinkers are Erich Fromm, Sigmund Freud, Alain Badiou, Avram Noam Chomsky and Richard Dawkins."

  sonia91: <waustad> His FIDE card still says "Federation FIDE Licensed". I wonder too what it does mean.

Anyway, these days he is commenting some games of the Olympiads for ChessBase.

Feb-05-17  waustad: He just transferred to the USA federation.
