13 year old Norwegian Aryan Tari made a sensational result in the Open Norwegian Championship scoring a GM norm before ever having made any IM norms.
The 13 year old, FIDE rated at 2293 on the March list, is considered to be maybe the greatest chess talents in the country since Magnus Carlsen. His best result in Youth Championship is 5th in World U12. Last year he became the youngest ever Norwegian Junior U20 champion having just turned 13 years.
In the Open Norwegian Championship, Aryan was ranked as 23rd, but finished at 7th place with 6 out of 9 points. Along the way the 13 year old, with parents originating from Iran, scored full points against Norwegian #2 GM Jon Ludvig Hammer (2629), National team member IM Frode Urkedal (2470) and Serbian GM Misa Pap (2511).
Aryan Tari is leading the group of Norwegian chess talents who is selected to be on one of Norway’s three teams in the 2014 Chess Olympiad in Tromsø.
