Jorge Cori becomes the youngest grandmaster

Jorge Cori comes ahead of Ray Robson and Anish Giri

Jorge Cori (Peru) became the youngest Grand Master in the world. At 14 years and 2 months he conquered the final GM norm at the International Marcel Duchamp Championship in Argentina. His first two Grandmaster norms were in the Continental Chess Championships of the Americas 2009 in Brazil. With this achievement he comes ahead of Ray Robson and Anish Giri, as the youngest grandmaster in the world.

“My next goal is to have a place among the top 20 in the world, and I will strive to achieve it. I would like to be someday like a Karpov or Kasparov,” said Cori to Peru 21.

“I hope this success I have achieved may sensitize Peruvian authorities, because we have many talents that end up being wasted due to lack of support,” he added.

Cori’s participation for the title of Grand Master took three months of preparation in Europe, where he had a private tour with Spanish with Javier Moreno, informs Livingin Peru cited by Susan Polgar.
