Vietnamese chess ace Khoi becomes GM

17-year-old Nguyen Anh Khoi has become the 11th Vietnamese chess grandmaster (GM). The International Chess Federation (FIDE) awarded him the title during the evaluation period on September 7-8 since Khoi has an Elo rating of 2520 and completed four title norms in international tournaments.

A GM title requires an Elo rating of 2500 and three title norms.

After winning his first norm at the Southeast Asian Championship in December 2015, Khoi had to wait until March 2019 and the Sharjah Masters for his second.
