[what is this?]

Candidate Master (2012); FIDE Master (2014); International Master (2014); Grandmaster (2017).

Master Awards and Norms

<Candidate Master> Awarded for his result at the World U14 Championship in 2014 (see below).

<FIDE Master> Awarded by FIDE in March 2014, probably as a result of having previously reached a rating of 2300.

<International Master> (1) Petrosyan's first IM Norm came from his 5.5/9 at the Pan-Armenian Olympiad staged in Yerevan in August 2010. His second norm was from his 5.5/9 that he scored at the Moscow Open 2012 A in February 2012. His third was from his 4.5/9 result at the European Individual Championship (2014). All scores were requisite for the norms gained.

Petrosyan reached a rating of 2400 in October 2014, thereby fulfilling his final qualification for the IM title, at the age of approximately 16 years and 5 months. In the meantime, he had scored a fourth IM norm at Perm in May 2014 that had been submitted with his application for the IM title.


He placed =3rd (5th on tiebreak) at the 2012 World U14 Championship and at the World Youth Championship U18 (2016) he placed 1st overall. Runner up at the European U18 Championship 2015. He placed 2nd overall behind Aryan Tari (winner) and Chithambaram V R Aravindh (3rd after tie-breaks), tying with them at 8.5 points at the World Junior Championship (2017).

Oct-14-15  BIDMONFA: Manuel Petrosyan


Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Should his surname be spelt like the 9th World Champion, Petrosian and as his name is Manuel, does he have a rare Siberian Hamster?


Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Paul> Do you recall British texts, which usually had this surname spelt as above back in the sixties?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Alan> Yes I do recall seeing some of those British texts. English has problems with the expression of non English names at times.


Jun-01-16  offramp: The problem was that a lot of people, me included, pronounced the great Tigran's name as if it rhymed with explosion. I still do, in fact.

It is because of words like artesian and caucasian.

To remedy our ignorance mags like the BCM changed for a while to the -syan ending. It worked for a while, too!

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Paul> Also recall seeing <Chess> in the early 1960s featuring a certain world champion called 'Tahl'.

Never quite figured out who <that> guy was, though he seemed to play fairly well for an unknown. (laughs)
