[what is this?]

FM (2004 - aged 9); IM (2009); GM (2009).

Cori is the younger brother of Deysi Estela Cori Tello. He won his third GM norm and his GM title in September 2009 at the age of 14 years 2 months.


<Youth and Junior> He placed equal third behind Illya Nyzhnyk and Daniel Naroditsky in the World U12 Championship in 2007 in Antalya, Turkey. He also scored 7.5/13 at the World Junior Championship (2010). He won the 2011 World U16 championship held in Brazil. In August 2012, he scored 8/13 in the World Junior Championship (2012) and in November 2012, he scored 8/11 in the World U18 Championship held in Maribor in Slovenia to place =3rd, a point behind the winner Dariusz Swiercz and a half point behind the runner up, Hovhannes Gabuzyan. In September 2013, he missed out on the bronze medal at the World Junior Championship (2013) on tiebreak, having scored 9.5/13. He was =2nd (4th on tiebreak) at the World U18 Championship 2013.

<Continental and World> In November 2010, he came fourth at the Panamerican Continental Championships. In April 2011, he came =3rd at the American Continental Championship held in Estado de Toluca in Mexico, thus qualifying him to play in the World Cup (2011). There he faced Spanish number one and super-GM Francisco Vallejo Pons in the first round; he fought back from a loss in the first game to square the two-game mini-match, but lost one and drew one game in the rapid game tiebreaker to exit the tournament. He placed 5th in the American Continental Championship in May 2013, and with his sister who placed 6th, qualified for the World Cup (2013). There, he faced and lost to Azeri GM Teimour Radjabov in the first round and was eliminated from the Cup. In July 2014, Cori placed 2nd in the 5th Ibero-American Individual Championship behind Paraguayan GM Axel Bachmann Schiavo.

In May 2015, he was 3rd at the American Continental Championship and thereby qualified for the World Cup 2015.

Cori started 2013 with a decisive win with 8/9 (+7 =2) at the Copa IPD 2013 "Categoria Especial" in Peru. 2013 started with the 1st and 2nd Magistral IPDs in Lima; Cori's performance was roughly par for rating, although the slight loss of points he did suffer was mainly due to a loss to his sister in the first Magistral. In May-June 2013, Cori (and his sister Deysi) placed =1st in the 1st International Open in Arequipa in Peru with 5.5/7. In June, he scored 7/9 to place =2nd at the 21st International Open at Montcada i Reixac in Spain and followed this result in July with 8/10 (=4th, a half point behind the 3 co-leaders) at the 33rd International Open held in Benasque Huesca in Spain, losing only to his sister, followed by outright 1st at the Ciutat de Balaguer International Open - also in July 2013 - with 7.5/9 ahead of Vladimir Burmakin.

In March 2015, he was equal first alongside Axel Bachmann Schiavo at the Copa Latina de Ajedrez 2015 in Buenos Aires with 7.5/9 and 2nd at the 46 Abierto Ciudad de Mar del Plata.

Sep-13-16  fisayo123: <saffuna> Won his last 4 games in a row to vs some really good players. He was probably the biggest reason why Peru had a surprising top 10 finish.

No kidding! 8/10 on board two. Cordova also held his own on board one with 5/10 and nobody scored below 50%.

  Willem Wallekers: Jorge Cori is performing great in the Sitges open, scored 7.5 out of 8 and entered the live top 100 of the rating list. If you want a pleasant surprise go to, find him on postion 95 and click on his name.
Aug-05-17  sonia91: He won the Sitges Open with 8.5/9 (!!):

Now Jorge is 91st in the live ratings at 2657.1

Oct-24-17  sonia91: In the November 2017 list Jorge Cori reached a new peak rating at 2657, breaking into the world top 100 and becoming the numer 1 in Peru (ahead of Julio Ernesto Granda Zuniga).
Oct-31-17  sonia91: *October 2017
Sep-27-18  gauer: Should such a board pairing materialize in Russia vs Peru, there are perhaps a number of America Continental region fans that may wonder how well this player may fare versus the past world champion. Good luck (to both, of course - a fan of both great players as well as players arising from events such as previous World youth championships), now that the Olympiad pairings might be starting to become slightly more balanced as the middle rounds approach.
Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Well, Cori just defeated Wei Yi. I'd say that's a pretty good victory.
