Jul-27-11  oscarwilde: Hi! The first game attributed to Ajrapetjan was played in 1981 according to the list of games. As he, the grandmaster, was born in 1988, something is wrong here...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <oscar> True, though he wouldn't be the first grandmaster to display such unusual pre-natal ability.

Preconception, too.

Ajrapetjan played a nice Exchange sac against Moiseenko in 2009 at a Ukrainian team event, then took a draw in a winning position. Interesting game, not currently in the CG database - a 25-move Bogo-Indian.

  Stonehenge: According to NicBase black was Abel S Airapetian.

  Domdaniel: <henge> That makes sense. Must have been before the Armenjan spelling reform.
