[what is this?]


Abihanyu Mishra played in his first rated tournament in June 2014 at age 5. In April 2018, aged 9 years, 2 months and 17 days, he became the youngest USCF master in history. In November 2019, at the age of 10 years, 9 months, and 3 days, he qualified for the International Master title. That made him the youngest player ever to do so, beating by 17 days the record previously held by Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa. On June 30, 2021, he qualified for the Grandmaster title at the age of 12 years, 4 months, and 25 months, beating by over two months the record previously held by Sergey Karjakin.

Mishra played in the 2021 Chess World Cup, losing to Baadur Jobava in the first round.

Kibitzer's Corner

Jul-07-21  Nosnibor: It considerably helps your grading if far stronger players agree draws with you in less than 10 moves e.g. Korley (2447) 9 moves, Stremavios (2529) 5 moves, Paguratii (2358) 5 moves, Nagy (2502) 6 moves. However having said all that many congratulations young man!
Jul-07-21  HSOL: While a great achievement, surely the grandmaster title in itself has been devalued severely last few decades given this very talented youngster is ranked about 900th in the world and he has already reached the ELO needed to be grandmaster.

It's misleading to use raw numbers. Yes, there are more GM's now, but there are also more total players. In 1950 there were a couple of dozen GM's, many of them retired. If the increased player pool didn't result in more GM's, it would be like nobody under 2750 would be a GM today.

Jul-17-21  gary11201: Does he get FIDE points or ELO points for draws in games that run for fewer than 10 moves? If so, I can't take this seriously. A GM title should not rest on such points. In fact, no title should rest on such points. This seems to be another instance of Gresham's Law: the cheap drives out the precious.

  MissScarlett: Changing America, indeed.

Yes. But I would call it more an example of Goodhart's law: "When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure."

  MissScarlett: After all his hard work - and that of his father - Mishra probably won't be happy to learn that Tani is close on his heels....

<An 11-year-old Black boy on his way to becoming chess’ youngest grandmaster>

Although, given that his current rating seems to be about 2050, and he doesn't have any FM norms, let alone IM or GM ones, Tani had better get a move on, so to speak.

Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: <MS> There is no such a thing as <FM norm>. You get an FM title once you reach 2300. And as you see from that rating page, Tani gained some 300 points within 4 months, after a year of near complete inactivity.

Tani's best result in a single game so far seems to be a draw against Ismayil Bahram Shahaliyev, not bad for "just a 2000 player". But year, GM within a year seems unrealistic. FM or even IM within a year can happen though.

Oct-11-21  Z truth 000000001: Plus, look at his rating chart:

The 2nd-derivative needs some work.

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Well, I feel sorry for the poor little mucker....carrying the white man's burden will surely prove too much to bear...
Nov-19-21  lentil: I suspect that his 'highest rating' is incorrect; as I understand, the GM requirement is that it must exceed 2500, if only by 0.1 and for a few seconds.
