PARIMARJAN NEGI
(born Feb-09-1993, 26 years old) India

[what is this?]
Parimarjan Negi was born in New Delhi. He picked up the game of chess at the age of 4 and in 2002 won the Asian Under-10 Championship. He was third in the 2004 World U-12 Championship in Heraklio, Crete, and in July of 2005, he became the world's youngest International Master. Before his thirteenth birthday he made two grandmaster norms and, in June 2006, he made his third. 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.

In 2008, Negi marked his improvement with joint first place at the Kaupthing Open in Luxembourg and clear first at the Philadelphia Open. He was runner-up behind Abhijeet Gupta in the World Junior Championship (2008) with 9.5/13. He qualified for the World Cup (2011) by winning Zonal 3.7, winning round one in a walkover as his opponent Vladimir Akopian was a last minute withdrawal because of health reasons. His opponent in the second round was Teimour Radjabov, the result being a win for the Azeri super-GM. In October 2011, Negi came equal 1st with 7.5/9 in the 15th International Bavarian Open. 2012 started with a good showing (7/10) in the Tradewise Gibraltar (2012), and although this was offset by a mediocre (4/9) at the Aeroflot Open (2012), he put in a strong performance at the 28th Cappelle-la-Grande (2012), coming 2nd on tiebreak behind winner Pentala Harikrishna with 7/9 and a 2699 TPR and then followed up with a par for rating 6/9 at the 14th Dubai Open (2012). Despite a last round loss in the Asian Continental Chess Championship (2012), Negi scored 7/9 and won the event, thereby qualifying for the World Cup (2013). He placed second with 7/9 at Leiden in July 2012 and represented India on board 3 at the Chess Olympiad (2012). He finished up 2012 at the 1st International GM Round Robin Chess Tournament where he scored a relatively rating-neutral 4/10 but started 2013 on an upbeat note by coming 2nd with 6.5/9 at the Baden Baden Open in February, a half point behind Etienne Bacrot. Then in March 2013, he placed =1st with 7/9 at the 29th Cappelle-la-Grande (2013), temporarily returning him to the top 100. In July-August 2013, Negi scored a stunning 9/10 to win the Politiken Cup (2013) outright, a point clear of Ivan Cheparinov and several other joint runners-up.

At the 2013 World Cup, Negi lost his first round match to Ukrainian GM Yuriy Kryvoruchko and was eliminated from the tournament.

Negi played board 1 for India in the Chess Olympiad (2014) played in TromsÝ, and led his team to the upset of the Olympiad to win a bronze medal.

May-10-12  shivasuri4: In the Asian Continental 2012 held in Vietnam, Negi is in the 5th place after 5 rounds. He has so far beaten Wan Yunguo, Nguyen Anh Dung, Gundavaa Bayarsaikhan and Megaranto Susanto. His only loss until now has come against John Paul Gomez in round 2. Today he plays the tournament leader Yu Yangyi (rated 2626 with 4.5 points, lone draw to 2483-rated countryman Liu Qingnan in round 4.) on the top board.
May-10-12  shivasuri4: Negi beat Yu Yangyi in a fine game in 51 moves to jump to sole first with 5 points, ahead of 8 players with 4.5 points. Yangyi blundered with his 33rd move in time pressure, and never recovered.
May-10-12  shivasuri4: Negi next plays 2679-rated Ding Liren in the 7th round with the white pieces.
May-10-12  Ragh: Thats a great win against Yu Yangyi. Negi recovered fine after his Round 2 debacle.
May-11-12  shivasuri4: Negi continues to lead the table after round 7 with a win against Ding Liren in 30 moves of the French, Advanced. In this exciting game, Liren blundered on move 27 in a difficult position and resigned soon after, when the loss of a piece was imminent.
May-11-12  shivasuri4: Negi, with 6 points, plays 2550-rated GM Olivier Barbosa, one of the 3 players with 5.5 points in the penultimate round tomorrow.
May-12-12  notyetagm: At the <ASIAN CONTINENTAL CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP>, Negi has sole possession of 1st place after winning 6(!) games in a row.

  wordfunph: "Winning six straight games after losing the very second game was something that even surprised me. 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.>

< 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.

Jan-22-15  shivasuri4: <ketchuplover>, it's Stanford, actually, not Harvard. This is a major blow for Indian chess. Good luck to Negi though.

  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?

  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!
