Sep-05-15  waustad: Here is one player, not in this who will be heard from soon. I'd never heard of her until I saw her rating:

Davaademberel Nomin-Erdene (please forgive me if I got the order wrong, I don't speak Mongolian) has applied for an IM title and has picked up over 130 elo in the last 2 months. Her rating now is higher than anybody playing in this tournament and she's 15.

Sep-05-15  fisayo123: Zhansaya Abdumalik is the best player here.
Sep-05-15  sonia91: <waustad> Here's the ChessBase article about August 2015 rating lists, in which she is mentioned:

"In January 2014, Mongolian player Nomin-Erdene Davaademberel, 13 years old, was rated a very modest 1834, certainly not worth noting. Sure, she had won the Asian u10 championship in 2010, but since nothing that stood out had materialized since then there was no reason to have any particular expectations at this point. After being inactive for over six months, her rating began to take off event after event and by October 2014 she was already 2107, until the Elo explosion in which she leapt from 2107 to 2314 the next months, for a 207 Elo gain. Playing every single month her rating fluctuated considerably as she gained 40 Elo in some events, lost it in others, and by June this year was at 2303. Now, after a month's rest, rethinking or regrouping, she experienced another boom and has gained 125 Elo, taking it to a very impressive 2428. This also ranks her world no.52 among all female players."

Sep-05-15  sonia91: Strangely, she didn't even take part in the Under-16 Chess Olympiad in Mongolia ended just a week ago
Sep-07-15  Bruce Graham: Zhansaya Abdumalik is tearing up the field. 6-0 thus far.
Sep-08-15  paavoh: <Zhansaya Abdumalik is tearing up the field. 6-0 thus far.> And her games are getting shorter and shorter.
Sep-08-15  sonia91: It seems nobody is caring about this tournament. Zhansaya Abdumalik is leading after 7 rounds with 7/7.
Sep-08-15  schweigzwang: I was following the top board game for a bit this morning on Chess24 ... before I had to go to work.
Sep-08-15  waustad: <sonia91> Thanks for the information. With a k value of 20 her rating is still fairly volatile, but not as bad as when it is 40. She needs a recognizable nickname like Chimi.
Sep-09-15  mike1: both ladies from KAZ are playing each other today at board# 1(round8). Maybe the first draw for the killer Chimi?
Sep-09-15  sonia91: <mike1> 'Chimi' isn't Abdumalik, but Tuvshintugs Batchimeg, from Mongolia like the new rising star Nomin-Erdene Davaademberel

Tomorrow Abdumalik will face Dinara Saduakassova. There is a third girl from Kazakhstan: 11-year-old Bibissara Assaubayeva, currently the youngest in the FIDE Top 100 Girls rating list.

Sep-11-15  waustad: Thank you <sonia>. I didn't have to do the search you just did to correct the misconception.
Sep-11-15  waustad: Naming conventions vary a lot even among the small portion of humanity that is of European ancestry. We're bound to get names wrong, but should always remember to try to respect others preferences when we know better. I remember hearing a Swede pronouncing Ingmar Bergman with hard 'g's. I asked her why and she said that otherwise the listener wouldn't know who she meant. I suspect that Yasser Seirawan often knows better but pronounces the name so that people who don't will recognize what he's saying.
Sep-13-15  notyetagm: Wow, Abdumalik started <7/7> but just lost her 2nd consecutive game in Round 11.
Sep-15-15  schweigzwang: Direct WGM title for the winner, Buksa?
Sep-15-15  waustad: I would say yes after reading this:

  HeMateMe: were there any Americans in either the girls or boys tournament? I didn't see any mentioned in the chessbase article.
