|Jul-11-06|| ||Dozy: A GM in the making, Moulthun Ly is something of a phenomenon in Australia. |
In 2005 he became our youngest ever National Junior Champion and missed out by half a point this year only because he was playing the Junior and Senior Championship simultaneously--juniors each morning, followed by the senior event in the afternoon.
Last week he competed in the World Open where he finished with 6/9, only one point behind the winner Gata Kamsky.
There's a story about him at http://www.rootyhillchess.org/moult...
|Oct-31-06|| ||Stevens: there is some video of him here, apparently gaining his second IM norm in October 2006|
|Jan-13-11|| ||twinlark: His third IM norm has been hard to come by. He hasn't played many FIDE rated games since 2007, and now his =1st in the Australian Open won't gain him his third norm as all his opponents were Aussies.|
|Sep-02-11|| ||twinlark: My bad. He gained his 3rd IM norm at the Doeberl in 2010. He just needed to boost his live rating to 2400 to secure his title, which he now seems to have done.|
Belated congratulation to IM Ly!
|Sep-02-11|| ||twinlark: <ozmikey>
Any idea how Ly secured his title? He doesn't seem to have achieved a live rating of 2400 until the World Junior, a couple of months after FIDE awarded the title.
|Sep-03-11|| ||ozmikey: <twinlark> Couldn't tell you I'm afraid. I seem to remember someone saying that the rating points he gained from the Oz Open (terrific performance there, BTW) pushed him over the magic mark, but I may be mistaken.|
In other news on notable Australian players, incidentally, John Purdy passed away last week. RIP.
|Sep-03-11|| ||ozmikey: Ah, sorry, just noticed that you've updated that on his player page already.|
|Sep-04-12|| ||andyatchess: Nice 2012 Chess Olympiad game aginst Karttunen Moulthun!|
