|Dec-07-04|| ||Knight13: Justin Sarkar |
|May-31-07|| ||Giearth: http://www.newyorkmasters.com/playe...|
|Sep-08-08|| ||dx9293: Justin has been playing very well lately, and is expected to gain 35 FIDE rating points, taking his rating to 2451, a new high for him.|
He already has one GM norm from the 2006 Marshall Chess Club Championship and if he keeps going, I think he can get the GM title.
Sarkar probably would have made it already if the USCF, or whoever is in charge of it, had awarded him a Samford Fellowship ($32,000 a year for two years to study chess) a few years back when he was eligible.
|Nov-05-08|| ||BIDMONFA: Justin Sarkar|
|May-28-12|| ||OhioChessFan: http://dotq.org/chess/Justin_Sarkar...|
|Oct-20-12|| ||GrahamClayton: It is interesting that Sarkar wrote the chapter on the KID for "Batsford's Modern Chess Openings" in 2009, but he doesn't play the KID exclusively against 1.d4.|
|Sep-03-13|| ||dx9293: It looks like IM Sarkar has earned his second GM norm from the 2013 US Masters, nearly seven years after his first norm! I know he has been working extremely hard for it. Congratulations, Justin!|
|Sep-03-13|| ||perfidious: An object example of why GM and IM titles are easier to get than in earlier days-that first norm would have been off the books long ago.|
|Sep-03-13|| ||dx9293: <perfidious> Strictly speaking you are correct, but earning norms is hard enough anyway and only an infinitesimal part of the chess population can think of earning one, let alone three [and a 2500 Elo], so I doubt it changes much in practice.|
|Jan-02-14|| ||refutor: <grahamclayton> maybe he learned something (from the white side!) while he was analyzing ;)|
|Sep-09-17|| ||DarthStapler: I always confuse this guy with Jeff Sarwer|
|Sep-09-17|| ||Retireborn: I always get Walter Shipley and Walter Shipman mixed up myself.|
|Sep-09-17|| ||WannaBe: I always get Glenn Close and Glenn Campbell confused.|
|Sep-09-17|| ||Retireborn: <WannaBe> Pretty sure one of them is a Woman. Birds and bees thing going on, you see?|
|Sep-14-17|| ||diceman: <WannaBe: I always get Glenn Close and Glenn Campbell confused.>|
I get Glenn Campbell confused with Andy Warhol.
|Apr-05-19|| ||Messiah: It's a pity he plays so infrequently.|
|Apr-05-19|| ||beatgiant: <Messiah>
If he ever plays Carlsen, will we see posts from you like "I hope Justin defeats Justin"? Sorry, couldn't help myself....
|Apr-05-19|| ||Messiah: <beatgiant> Yes, of course!|
