But then I have been working hard on the aspect of dealing with defeats and not carrying the emotions too long. Itís a natural progression for me and shows that Iíve been becoming stronger psychologically."|
- GM Parimarjan Negi (after winning the 2012 Asian Continental Individual Chess Championship)
|Jul-07-12|| ||Pirandus: Puis-je voir une partie Carlsen vs. Negi? Si non, pourquoi?|
|Jul-07-12|| ||unsound: Non. Parce que, apparemment, Carlsen n'a jamais joue contre Negi.|
|Jan-13-13|| ||fref: Ce gars-lŗ vient de gagner le "Death Match 10" contre le GMI Alejandro Ramirez-Alvarez|
|Mar-03-13|| ||quantum.conscious: <Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi finished in a tie for the top spot with seven other GMs in the 29th edition of the Capelle-a-Grande tournament.|
Negi settled for a draw with Sergey Fedorchuk in the final round of the event that featured 76 Grandmasters in a field of 563 players.
Negi scored seven out of nine in the event played over a Swiss System.
Interestingly, Negi had tied with fellow Indian P Harikrishna in the same event last year, and lost out the Trophy in a tie-break.
The same happened this time as Negi was placed second on the basis of tie-break points with GM Sugirov Sanan of Russia.
Negi (2638) received 1700 euros from the prize kitty and will gain about eight ELO points from the event.>
|Aug-04-13|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Negi won Politiken Cup 2013. An interview, in Danish, on this link.
|Feb-09-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 21st birthday to GM Parimarjan Negi.
< By doing so, Negi, aged 13 years and 142 days, beat Magnus Carlsen record by becoming the second-youngest person in history to complete all the requirements for the grandmaster title. >
Hmm. Maybe in the future, India might get a rematch against Carlsen by sending Negi. ;)
Also, it looks like he lost to Karjakin for youngest to earn the GM title by just a few months.
|Feb-09-14|| ||ketchuplover: Happy 21st :)|
|Sep-27-14|| ||Albertan: Q&A with the Class of 2018′s Chess Grandmaster:|
|Jan-22-15|| ||ketchuplover: Best wishes at Harvard young man :)|
|Jan-22-15|| ||shivasuri4: <ketchuplover>, it's Stanford, actually, not Harvard. This is a major blow for Indian chess. Good luck to Negi though.|
|Feb-09-16|| ||ketchuplover: Happy birthday young man :)|
|Feb-09-16|| ||JohnBoy: The picture is way old and needs to be updated.|
|Jan-17-19|| ||Tabanus: Looks like Stanford took the chess away.|
|Jan-17-19|| ||saffuna: From the interview (which is very good):
" If I had won that match, I would have had a very good chance of winning that event. It was a high-stress situation. I was very close to winning, a few seconds away, probably. One move ó I know that, he knows that. But suddenly I make this absolutely huge blunder thatís for, like, four-year-olds. A complete blackout. "
Does anybody know what game he is referring to?
|Jan-17-19|| ||saffuna: Maybe this game? Negi vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2014|
|Feb-09-19|| ||Penguincw: < Feb-09-14 Penguincw: [Negi becomes 2nd youngest ever GM]. >|
And fast forward just 5 years later, when <four> people have broken the record for 2nd youngest ever GM. Negi isn't even the youngest ever <Indian> to become a GM - third youngest now.
But Happy Birthday!
