Yes, naging winner kasi sya @ age 7+ sa 4th ASEAN+ Age-Grp Chess Championships (2013) U8 ... na that goes with it "Direct Titles" an "FM" title awarded to Gold medalist in U8-U16.

While Wesley started quite late na at age 9 when he began to compete in local, junior chess tournaments. In CY-2004, he acquired his FIDE Master (FM) qualification when he emerged joint 1st placers/Gold medallist in U12 division at the 5th ASEAN ‘Age-Group’ Chess Championship in Vun Tau, Vietnam at age 10years-11months-3days.

Sa personal may kalikutan si Nouri which is normal naman sa mga bata. Biglang laki siguro improvement niya, kasi in one tournament nakita ko 1 year ago ay nagstruggle siya with a player that is not a national master. Sky is the limit for this kid.

Before when he just struck the Gold Medal @ U8 ! But today, worldwide, i think there are other youngsters who were also gold medalist at U8 much younger at his current age that are already FM.

In the Philippines, of course he is still the youngest FM to date ! :D

i believe he is currently busy with international games abroad. His family already left Escalante, Negros Occidental.

Di ba currently it was reported he is the youngest FIDE master? Di ako sure eh.

Filipino chess prodigy Nouri makes it to ’15 Millionaire Chess Open

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Nine-year-old Filipino chess prodigy Alekhine Nouri beat the March 31 deadline and will compete in the 2015 Millionaire Chess Open scheduled in October at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

The child prodigy from Escalante, Negros, created a sensation last year when he jumped two sections to finish strongly in the Under 1900 Section. He has moved up to the U2000 this year.

First place offers $30,000 in this section, but focus will be in the Open Section, in which grandmasters Hikaru Nakamura and Wesley So are anticipated to battle for the $100,000 top prize.

After scrambling for a sponsor to help him with the stiff registration fee, Nouri finally made it, thanks to Jeorge Balares of JBS Income Tax & Notary Service.

“Thank God I finally made it,” said Nouri. “Thank you to Sir Jeorge,” he added in a Facebook posting.

Born in Negros on December 12, 2005, and named after the great Russian grandmaster Alekhine, Nouri started playing chess at five under the tutelage of his father, Hamed Nouri, himself a FIDE master.

To give his son full attention, Hamed quit his job and moved the family to Metro Manila, where Alekhine earned a scholarship at Far Eastern University.

In June 2013, during the Asean Age Group Chess championships in Thailand, Nouri earned an outright FM title with his victory in the Open 8-under category, making him the youngest Filipino FIDE Master and the youngest FIDE Master in the world.

He and his father moved to California last year, and his participation in the Las Vegas tournament is part of his preparations for the World Youth championships this year.

The Millionaire Open chess tournament is set for October 8 -12, with a hectic twice-a-day schedule and tie-break playoffs.
