It would be shocking if he has reached his life's climax by aged twelve years. Of course he will achieve a lot more.

Nepo has tweeted that at least one GM norm should be obtained in an open tournament and not these arranged events with invited GMs that they seem to specialise in in Eastern Europe. https://twitter.com/lachesisq/status/1410329271428599811

He is absolutely right, there are always speculations about those tournaments.

A new record has been made/broken with the young brilliant Abhimanyu Misha breaking Karjakin's 2003! record by over two months!
(18 years for someone to beat him, not bad Sergey)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abhimanyu_Mishra (especially footnote references 12,13, 14)


N.B the conversation of youngest GM ever, came up in the final round of the MCC club championship and I was corrected multiple times that the youngest GM ever is NOT Karjakin, although we did talk about him as well. youngest GM is some young, kid, yeah Karjakin. No, younger, took me a minute to realise it had been broken.

Gen z/alpha be getting too strong too fast; scary!.

I presume your point was concerned with race, as so many of your posts are.

An interesting long article (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/13/sports/chess-karjakin-mishra-grandmasters.html?campaign_id=61&emc=edit_ts_20210713&instance_id=35200&nl=the-great-read&regi_id=61298431&segment_id=63320&te=1&user_id=69933a9dcbec5212038085f12fd6fc89) by Ivan Nechepurenko and Misha Friedman was published in the New York Times on 13 July on “the world’s youngest grandmaster” Abhimanyu Mishra, a young boy from New Jersey who broke the record of Karjakin (at the time from Ukraine) by two months, qualifying for that designation at the age of 12 years 4 months 25 days.

“We have a dog called Pasquales,” said Nigel Short (himself a former coach of the boy Karjakin). “I believe it is possible that if I went to the effort, I think I could get my dog a grandmaster’s title.
