How exactly does that work?

 

He's met the requirements and the title will be valid from that point, but, for it to be officially confirmed they have to put in the application, provide the norm certificates, pay FIDE the fee...it doesn't just get awarded automatically.

Its not official on FIDE database its JUST by Elo

 

FIDE site updates what... 4 times a year? They're way behind the times. Who care about FIDE tongue.png

If he got his 3 GM norms, then he's what they call GM elect.

JamesColeman Fee? Why do you have to pay so that you are "officially" a good player?

Most likely so. I have many juniors I could pick as future WC, and there are many years in the future. If I could mention one, that would be Praggnanandhaa…………………… and me, of course.

HA! I could SQUASH you.
