When one of the requirements is to have or reach 2500 Fide Elo rating

Yes. The requirement is just to reach 2500 at any point, even if you fall below again. Take this example: someone who starts a tournament being below 2500, then wins enough games in the tournament to be above 2500 midway through the tournament, but then lose the final game of the tournament, bringing him below 2500 again.

That player will have been above 2500 eventhough both before and after the tournament he was below.

The website you link only shows what the rating was at the start of each month. He is very close to 2500 on those. But apparently at some point in the middle of a month he must have been above it.

How do you know he was above 2500? 

Proof?  So far we can see he never achieved 2500 rating

If you find him on Twitter you can see how he was tweeting after every game in a tournament and informing his followers of his current rating after each game. At one point being “4 more points untill GM”. According to his tweets he was at some point over 2500, then fell under again, then got over again - and I assume he must have fallen under again.

Since FIDE made him GM and since this situation is directly in their rules, I assume that his tweets are correct.

Yeah, as MikeGreenhill pointed out, as long as that player reached 2500 or higher at any point during a tournament, he then qualifies for the GM title (assuming he achieves his norms, as well).

He would've received a certificate from the Chief Arbiter, proving that his rating reached 2500 or higher at that point, which would've been examined by FIDE to award him the title.

Wait how is that possible he's only 941?

@ESP-918 if you work hard on your chess, then maybe in 5 years from now, your OTB rating might be 400 elo points below Hans'. I'm rooting for you.

Lol thx but no thx.

There is an Eric Rosen YouTube video on the game which gained him the GM title. I believe at the point his opponent resigned all the pieces were still on the board. Which is a pretty cool way to do it.

Huh. I didn't know Hans Niemann had made the GM title! Was still an IM last I looked.

Isn't he like 2520ish now? Fide ratings don't update very quickly.
