Jul-24-12  BIDMONFA: Chopra Aryan

ARYAN, Chopra

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congrats to untitled Chopra Aryan (2334) for beating 9th seed GM Yu Ruiyan (2558) in R1 of the Golden Sands tournament. Chopra was also the only untitled player to win their R1 game.

Tomorrow, he'll have black against 7th seed Evgeny Romanov (2577).

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Aryan lost that game, but then beat GM Boris Chatalbashev (2545) with white, before losing to 31st seed GM Evgeni Janev (2413) with black, before downing 15th seed GM Sahaj Grover (2509) with white (see a pattern here?). Expecting a loss to continue the pattern, he drew 14th seed GM Erik Blomqvist (2509) with black, and faced 2 more IMs, before getting one last chance against a GM (white against Antoaneta Stefanova, 2499), which he lost.

Overall, he finished with 5/9 (+4,-3,=2).

  perfidious: One day this player will meet Nazi Paikidze, an encounter which would not be unwelcome to your humble poster.

  Penguincw: IM Chopra Aryan was the highest placed non-GM at the Zalakaros Chess Festival, as the 32nd seed finished 8th overall with a score of 6/9 (+4,-1,=4).

His TPR was 2657, so that's good enough for a GM norm. He also gained 23.8 points (started at 2459), as that should also help him on his journey to becoming a GM.

  cro777: Vishy Anand: "Congrats Aryan Chopra. Welcome to the GM club."

At the recent Abu Dhabi Masters tournament (21-29 August, 2016) Aryan Chopra completed his third and final GM norm. He sealed his GM norm in a must-win, last-round game against a player 100 Elo points higher. Beating Armenian GM Samvel Ter-Sahakyan (2613) he attained a rating performance of 2620.

Since Aryan is expected to cross Elo rating of 2500 with this performance, he has completed all the requirements to be the second youngest Indian ever to attain the title and currently the youngest grandmaster in the world (at the age of 14 years, 9 months, and 3 days).

Anand: "I remember meeting him many years back in Delhi. He worked very hard as a young boy. His family really worked a lot to make this happen. Its the first big step. Look forward to seeing him as a GM now!"

Feb-03-17  WorstPlayerEver: A male called Chopra. Must be possible.
Jan-31-20  SChesshevsky: Excellent 2020 Gibraltar. Undefeated with draws against two 2700's. Should be a deserved confidence builder.
Apr-16-22  Albertan: Chopra leads the Fagernes Chess International 2022 Tournament with a score of 6.5 after 8 rounds of play:
