15 years old Korpa Bence (HUN) hit GM level at First Saturday Budapest

Despite his young age Korpa Bence (15, HUN) is quite an experienced player.

Korpa
FM KORPA, Bence /HUN/

He is nine times National Champion in several age groups and with teams. He won bronze medal in U14 EU Championship (Mureck, AUT) in 2011 and came at 2-5th tied at Prague 2014. He is a student of Zrinyi Ilona Grammar School in Miskolc (HUN) visiting lessons regularly. He showed up amazingly resourceful skills always finding defence in the most difficult positions so he well deserved his first GM norm. His coach is GM Hera Imre (HUN) and after working together with half a year the young talent has closed up to GM level.

FM Sean Winshand Cuhendi (INA) has finished his half a year chess studies in Hungary with another success.

He has been working with several coaches and plans to return to Budapest again when his school duties are fulfilled. He has achieved his second IM norm now and became Nr.1 junior player of Indonesia.

Li Bo (CHN) won the IM section with his usual precise and accurate play leaving no room for any errors and no chance for the opponents. He was able to convert even the slightest advantage into victory.

His fellow-countryman Fang Yuxiang missed the IM norm only by half a point failing to win in the last round. WIM Nguyen Thi Mai Hung (VIE) playing fine positional style almost hit the WGM norm but also failed in the last round.

The only woman participant of the FM-A section Gal Hanna Krisztina (15, HUN) topped all the boys and all the experienced male opponents. She won the U14 Rapid European Championship this year in Budva (MNE) and the U14 National Championship too in standard chess. She lives in Debrecen (HUN) where she regularly attends Huszar Gal Grammar school as a student.

Hanna has also been working with IM Mester Gyula (HUN) and with FIDE Senior Trainer IM Hazai Laszlo (HUN) recently. The youngest participant Füredi Erik (11, HUN) played surprisingly well for his age and collected +32 FIDE-Rating points. Bohus Adam (12, HUN) was the only one who could defeat the winner and he collected +20 points.
