Super Chess GM \Tigran L. Petrosian Celebrates His 26th Birthday



GM.Tigran L. Petrosian (Armenian: Տիգրան Պետրոսյան; born September 17, 1984) is an Armenian chess player who holds the title of grandmaster (2002). His first name was deliberately chosen by his father to match the name of the former world champion Tigran V. Petrosian who was also of Armenian descent. It happened that, when the late Tigran won the world title, Tigran's father dreamt that if he ever had a son he would call him Tigran.Petrosian learned chess at the age of five. He received coaching from Gagik Sargissian and Melikset Khachiyan before entering a chess academy in 2002, where he was occasionally instructed by GM Arsen Yegiazarian and IM Ashot Nadanian. He achieved his grandmaster title by scoring norms at the under 18 World Championship in 2002, the Batumi Open in 2003, and the Aeroflot Open in Moscow in 2004.In 2005, he tied for first in Tehran, Kish and Lausanne; in 2006 tied for first in Lyon and Dubai; in 2008 tied for first in Wheeling and Las Vegas. He plays on the Internet Chess Club (ICC) under the pseudonym "Tigrano".In December 2009, he was awarded the title of "Honoured Master of Sport of the Republic of Armenia"...(
