|May-13-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: Promising young player.|
|May-14-13|| ||pbercker: Promising indeed, but I just looked at his age, and he's "just" a FIDE master but already 14 years old .... He should have been a GM by now! |
I'm exaggerating of course, but such is the "modern" expectation almost given ever younger chess players who become GM - Karjankin currently holding the record at 12 years and 7 months.
|Oct-10-13|| ||twinlark: <pbercker> Well, he has made it direct-to-IM with his U18 win in the NAYCC.|
|May-07-14|| ||waustad: Actually, since he started playing at age 10, he's quite advanced now. In his blog he says that he took up the game during a trip back to India.|
|May-07-14|| ||Chessinfinite: All the best Akshat. Enjoy your journey :)
Looking forward to seeing you as GM sometime !!
Seems like a nice kid, joyful - that is the best part , and quite deep and enjoyable reading his articles.
|Jul-11-14|| ||detritus: Chandra just finished a shared 1st (lost on tiebreaks) with Richard Rapport at Sport Summer 2014:|
|Aug-07-14|| ||dakgootje: Regarding his 'late' mastery, chessbase recently wrote on his extremely quick rating advances:|
<Although there were several strong ratings increases of 20 or 30 Elo (did we mention Hou Yifan?), there is one that is really beginning to stick out rather prominently: Akshat Chandra. This young 15-year-old IM from the US, not only gained 30 Elo in the last month, taking him to 2472 Elo, but has gained an astounding 200 Elo in the last year. A breakthrough you say? Try this: he was rated 1573 in March 2010 (he had just learned to play), 1905 in March 2011, 2130 in March 2012 (seeing a pattern here?), 2268 in June 2013, and now is 2472 in August 2014. Oh, and the 30 Elo this month comes from an open won by GM Rapport, where he came tied first-second with a 2650 performance.>

So that's.. that's quite alright. ;)

In all seriousness, it is most unfortunate that <pbercker> no longer posts at cg; for he was a thoughtful and decent presence. This site is poorer for Pascal's absence.
|Aug-09-15|| ||BIDMONFA: Akshat Chandra|
|Apr-16-16|| ||FSR: A shame that he missed the winning rook sac against So.|
|Jul-10-17|| ||hansj: Needs updating. Akshat is now a GM. I saw his GM title performance in St Louis in November 2016. Congratulations Akshat!|
|Oct-25-18|| ||Mudphudder: What's all this I read about how he's banned from chess.com for alleged cheating?|
