<king_nothing1: Susan Polgar termed Arvind chithambrab, laying very close to Carlsen and Aronion
|Feb-14-14|| ||notyetagm: <twinlark: I guess he has the small consolation that he was totally lost by then anyway. |
Not only that but after 25...Bc6, White missed a mate in 4 starting with 26. Nh6+:>
A very nice <MATE IN 4>: 26 ♘f5-h6+! g7x♘h6 27 ♕f3xf7+ ♔g8-h8 28 ♖e1-e8+! ♕d8x♖e8 29 ♕f7-f6#.

|May-17-14|| ||BIDMONFA: Chithambaram V R Aravindh|
|Aug-24-14|| ||Rascal Nikov: Congrats to Aravindh, for defeating Shirov.|
|Aug-24-14|| ||shivasuri4: 3 GM scalps in the Riga Technical University tournament. That will probably get him a GM norm.|
Aravindh is within sniffing distance of the 2500 mark now, with a rating of 2496.
|Aug-24-14|| ||Rascal Nikov: is 2496 live rating ? how much GM norms he already has ?|
|Aug-24-14|| ||shivasuri4: Yes, his live rating is 2496. I think this will be his second GM norm after the one at the Chennai Grandmaster International Open, but I can't be sure.|
He becomes the second highest rated among those born in 1999, behind Wei Yi.
|Aug-25-14|| ||Galion: This is his third GM norm. First was at The 2013 Chennai Grandmaster Open which he won and second was at Kuala Lumpur International Open.|
|Aug-25-14|| ||twinlark: Thanks for the info, guys. I've added to his bio to account for his title norms.|
|Sep-25-14|| ||twinlark: Aravindh just passed his 2500 live rating at the World U16 Championship in Durban in South Africa. It happened in round 3 on 21 Sep, and means that he's completed all the requirements he needs for the GM title since he gained his 3rd GM norm last month.|
He is now the world's youngest grandmaster, 5 months younger than the Chinese wunderkind Wei Yi.
Congratulations GM Aravindh!
|Sep-30-14|| ||twinlark: Congraturlations also on being the runner up at the World U16 championship.|
|Oct-02-14|| ||twinlark: |
Too early for one of the congratulations, it seems.
Aravindh played a local tourney before he got to Durban, and managed to get to 2499.4 live before he crashed and burned, losing over 20 points in the next 5 rounds.
Durban didn't make the difference it would otherwise had made.
|Dec-31-14|| ||twinlark: The latest FIDE ratings show Aravindh finally cracked the 2500 mark during the U16 Olympiad this month to fulfil the last condition needed to win his GM title a little over a month after his 15th birthday.|
Congratulations to GM Aravindh!
|Jan-02-15|| ||shivasuri4: The FIDE card of Aravindh doesn't show him as a GM yet. Samuel Sevian is presently the youngest GM in the world, having obtained the title in November 2014.|
|Jan-02-15|| ||twinlark: <shivasuri4>
True, but once the application is received and approved, the date of effect is the day on which the player meets all the conditions. This is spelt out in FIDE regulations. That's why it's possible for a GM never to have reached an official rating of 2500, as it is sufficient to achieve that level as a live rating to qualify for the title.
Aravindh has had 3 GM norms for months now, and has come agonisingly close (to within less than one rating point), so while he is not yet officially a Grandmaster, the upshot of these regulations is that once his title is approved, he <will have been> a Grandmaster from the 20th December 2014, the date at which he met the final criterion, namely the 2500 live rating.
As far as Sevian is concerned, he is younger than Aravindh, so the former remains the youngest GM in the world till someone younger makes the grade.
|Jan-02-15|| ||shivasuri4: Oh, I wasn't disputing your statement. I was merely wondering why the FIDE card hasn't been updated. Thanks for the info anyway, and the quick correction in Aravindh's bio.|
|Aug-17-15|| ||offramp: He is the inventor and sole user of the Chithambaram Attack: 1.Nf3 1....<any> 2.Rg1.|
|May-28-16|| ||sonia91: He won some weeks ago the Asian Junior Championship: http://chessbase.in/news/asian-juni...|
