[what is this?]

Abhjeet Gupta was born in the city of Bhilwara in Rajasthan, India. In 2001, he became Rajasthan's senior champion at the age of 11 years and eight months. In 2002, Gupta entered the Limca Book of Records on becoming the youngest National junior (under-19) champion at the age of 13 years and 10 days. He earned the IM title in 2005 at age 15 (at the time the youngest IM in India) and the GM title at 18 after earning his 3rd GM norm at the Balaguer 2007 International Open where he came =3rd with 7.5/10 behind Aleksander Delchev and Vinay Bhat. He has won 14 international medals, including six gold medals from the Asian, Commonwealth and British Championship age-group categories. He is also a regular participant of international open tournaments in India and abroad.

Also in 2007, he won the All India Open International Rating Chess Tournament with 7/8, came 3rd at Commonwealth Championships in India, half a point behind Surya Shekhar Ganguly and Ramachandran Ramesh, and won with 9/11 at the 36th Indian National Junior Chess Championship. In 2008, he won the 6th Parsvnath Open in New Delhi with a stunning score of 9/10, but even greater success came his way when he won his last five games in the World Junior Championship (2008) to take the title with 10/13 ahead of runner-up, compatriot Parimarjan Negi. Shortly afterwards, he defeated Zaven Andriasian 2-1 in the India - Armenia Friendship Chess Match won by India. In 2009, Gupta came =2nd at 2nd Subic International Open in the Philippines behind Ehsan Ghaem Maghami , scored 6/9, which was half a point behind the joint leaders, at the 24th International Chess Tournament "Acropolis 2009" in Greece, came =3rd at the Reykjavik Open (2009), =1st at the 18th Kavala International Open Tournament in Greece, and was =1st at the 13th International Open Bayerische Meisterschaft in Germany. He participated in the World Cup (2009) but lost in the first round to Nikita Vitiugov. He qualified for the World Cup (2011) through the 2010 Asian Continental Championship, and won the first two rounds against Azeri GM Rauf Mamedov and US GM Samuel Shankland before being eliminated by losing in somewhat unlucky fashion in the third round to Chinese GM Bu Xiangzhi.

In 2010, he came second behind Li Chao at Corus Group C (2010), =1st with Yuri Kuzubov, Hannes Stefansson and Ivan Sokolov (third on count back ahead of Stefansson) at the Reykjavik Open (2010), =2nd behind Ni Hua at the 9th Asian Continental Men's Chess Championship in the Philippines with 6.5/9, alongside Le Quang Liem, Wesley So, and Zhou Jianchao, =3rd at the Commonwealth Championship in India, =1st with Adam Tukhaev at the 19th Kavala Open in Greece and with 6.5/10, he was half a point behind the joint leaders of the 7th Dato' Arthur Tan Malaysia Open in Kuala Lumpur. He finished the year with 6/9 in the London Chess Classic (Open) and 5.5/9 in the Groningen Open. In 2011, he scored 8/11 in the 9th International Open in New Delhi, 7.5/11 in the 3rd Chennai International and 6.5/9 - a half point of the joint lead - in the 2011 Reykjavik Open. In April he came outright first in the Dubai Open with 7.5/9 and came =2nd at the 3rd Odisha GM International Open with 8.5/11. At the 20th International Open in Kavala in July 2011, he came =3rd with 6.5/9, half a point off the lead. In October 2011, Gupta took clear first scoring 9.5/13 at the 1000 player National Premier Tournament against 8 GMs and 5 IMs and in December 2011, he scored 8/9 (+7 =2) to win the London Classic (Open), a result that has boosted him into the world's top 100 for the first time. He followed up a with a strong finish in 2011 by placing =1st at the GM International Open held in Vizag, India, scoring 8.5/10.

2012 started with mediocre performances at Tradewise Gibraltar (2012) (6/9) and the Asian Continental Chess Championship (2012) (4/9) and par performances at the Aeroflot Open (2012), scoring 5/9, and at the 14th Dubai Open (2012) (6.5/9). In June, he won the 9th Annual Philadelphia International outright with 7.5/9 and in August he took outright first in the 21 International Open in Kavala in Greece with 7.5/9. His resurgence continued strongly with an individual silver medal on board 4 for India at the Chess Olympiad (2012) in Istanbul, from a score of 7/9. However, he finished 2012 with a very poor performance at the Kolkata Open (2012), scoring only 6/11 and losing 25 ratings points causing him to drop out of the world's top 100 to 122. An equally disastrous 5.5/10 result at the 2013 New Delhi Open caused him to shed another 24 points and reduced his ranking to 192. His woes continued at the Moscow Open (2013) where his 5/9 lost another 16 rating points, plus significant ranking within India and Asia. The national team championships in February 2013 likewise provided no joy, causing further slippage in his rating and ranking. He made minor recoveries with a reasonably strong 6.5/9 at the 2013 Dubai Open and 6/9 at the 2013 Nakhchivan Open, and then made a significant recovery when he won the Commonwealth and South African Open 2013, held in Port Elizabeth in July-August 2013. Two years later he won the Commonwealth Championship Open outright with a score of 8/9.

May-10-12  shivasuri4: In the Asian Continental 2012, the 6th seed Gupta started poorly, drawing with countryman Deepan Chakkravarthy and losing to Wang Chen, but has since recovered to post 3 consecutive wins against players rated well below him (2419, 2399, 2304). Today he faces Filipino GM Mark Paragua with the white pieces on board 4.
May-10-12  giwgiw: GM Gupta(2644) lost to GM Mark Paragua(2521) in the 6 round of Asian Continental 2012^_^
May-10-12  shivasuri4: <giwgiw>, yes, it was a 48 move loss in a sharp game. Gupta(3.5 points) next meets 2653 rated Wesley So(4 points). He is currently ranked 24th and has shed 10.8 points so far.
May-11-12  shivasuri4: Gupta drew quickly with Wesley So with a threefold-repetition to move to 4 points out of 7. He next meets untitled, 2481-rated Ma Qun, with the white pieces in the penultimate round. He should now hope to salvage something from this tournament with a win this round.

Dec-21-15  PhilFeeley: Why is his Al Ai win not listed here?

I don't see any of his games from there either.

Dec-22-15  sonia91: <PhilFeeley> is probably the least complete online chess database; as I wrote before, in the last year tournament coverage has worsened significantly, it seems now they only bother to cover tournaments involving top-10 players only (eg. only after <my requests> has added games from Leko-Li Chao Match, Poikovsky, Monte Carlo Women's Grand Prix, PokesStars Isle of Man; besides they covered this year's Men's World Team Championship, but not the women's, me myself had to send the games via email). And now is missing the Nutcracker Match of the Generations (a tournament has covered last year) with Gelfand, Leko, Morozevich...

As for the bio, many are outdated and sometimes also inaccurate. It seems the biographers don't even bother to update players' new titles (it's sufficient have a look at FIDE website, which publishes the list of approved titles after each presidential board). Recently I posted in the biographers' bistro the list of the new World Youth Champions, but nobody cared about it, I had to post it in the forum of a user that I know to be a bio writer.
