  OhioChessFan: <An incredible performance by 9-year-old FM Faustino Oro (2325)! The Argentinian prodigy scored 6,5/9 in the ITT Copa Ciudad de Comodoro Rivadavia with a performance rating of 2452 and achieved his first IM norm. >

  OhioChessFan: Trying to find his birthdate. My first search points to 10/15/13 but I don't have much confidence in that.

  FSR: <Faustino Oro, the Argentine prodigy with a fast growing reputation, has just achieved the youngest ever international master norm. Oro finished joint second in a 10-player round robin in Buenos Aires, scoring 6.5/9 for a performance rating of 2452. At nine years nine months, he broke the record set by Keymer in 2015 by six months. Oro now needs two more norms plus a 2400 rating for the IM title.

Earlier, Oro became the youngest ever 2200-rated player, at nine years three months, and the youngest 2300, at nine years six months. He learned the game at six, and his early progress was entirely self-taught through watching chess videos on the internet after his father created an account for him on "to stop him kicking footballs inside the house".>
