Yes congratulations to FM Yi Liu, undefeated QLD Champion. Lots of dangerous players in the field there, well done. Tough luck for FM Dusan Stojic, who lead for most of the event, a very well made outright second.

Yes a hearty congratulations to Yi on winning the 2021 Queensland Chess Championship outright on the fine score of 8 out of 9! Dusan also had a very good tournament to finish a close second on 7.5 out of 9, a score that could have easily won the event in some years. Sravan Renjith finished in third place with 6 out of 9, and his rating performance will soon see him awarded the FM title! Congratulations Sravan on a fine event and for achieving the FM Title once the event is rated by FIDE! I would like to thank Michael D'Arcy for overseeing the event and offering helpful advice whenever it was required, Max Kershaw for arbiting the U1600 Championship with professionalism and friendliness from start to finish and even putting up with me as a player taking forever to finish the last game and of course David Esmonde for doing the lion's share of just about everything, including the Vega Pairings for both events, the live DGT broadcasts of the top boards in the Championship and the Under 1600 and publishing the eagerly awaited pairings in a timely manner. Thanks a million David! Make sure you replay some of the great games from the 2021 Queensland Chess Championship at: https://livechess.aunz.net/ Finally a big thank you to all the players - you made the event a memorable one with many fighting and creative games for us to watch and enjoy.

Are you sure about that, Mark? I was under the impression that you get an FM title if (a) You achieve an official FIDE rating of 2300 [which would be a big leap from 2057], or (b) You compete in a large international tournament (like a Zonal) where FIDE has stated that achieving a certain score gets you a direct title.

In any case, it was a fine effort by Sravan.

In any case, it was a fine effort by Sravan.

I believe sravan had achieved some sort of 'soft title' that was rating dependent from competing in the 2018 Oceania youth championships in New Zealand.

If I am correct I believe he has to cross 2100 to claim the title which he now has done based on live rating.

Congratulations to all, Yi had a fantastic tournament 8/9 is impressive. Dusan lead most of the tournament and finished on a respectable 7.5. Of course Congratulations to Sravan on his title once approved.

From the FIDE Title Regulations effective from 1 July 2017


0.6 The Award of Titles

0.61 Titles may be awarded for specific results in specific Championship events, or are awarded on achieving a rating as laid down in these regulations. Such titles are confirmed by the QC Chairman on advice from the FIDE Office. They are then awarded by FIDE.

0.62 For a direct title to be awarded immediately an applicant has to have achieved at some time or other a minimum rating as follows:

GM 2300 WGM 2100
IM 2200 WIM 2000
FM 2100 WFM 1900
CM 2000 WCM 1800

If an applicant is rated lower the title is awarded conditionally and will be awarded finally on request by the respective federation as soon as the minimum rating is achieved. Any player with a conditional title may take a lower title when they reach the required rating for that lower title.


0.63 Titles are also awarded based on applications with norms with a sufficient number of games. These titles shall be awarded by the General Assembly on recommendation by the QC that the candidate meets the requirements. The Presidential Board or Executive Board may award titles in clear cases only, after consultation with the QC.
