Yup, free diamond account.

As long as he's old enough. Otherwise, it would be ChessKid.com, if I recall correctly.

I believe that anyone can be a member of chess.com, but under-13s should have a parent monitoring the account.

But I really doubt that he is under 13 if he is an International Master.

I know of at least 3 titled players on here with free accounts who are under 13.

Sam Sevian is the only IM under 13 I believe.  And he's not from Venezuela.

And he's not an IM yet, he is an IM conditional on getting a 2400+ rating, and his highest rating is 2392.35

The youngest IM is Wei Yi from China, who is at least 13.

That's true, he isn't an IM, people just say he is.

Hello i have a little problem. I give the information to submit my sons title but with this account. And i dont want to have the IM title here. We want it on another account. How can i solve this little problem?

Your son should open his own account and then, submit his own details.

FYI, there are ways to get an IM title that have nothing to do with a base rating. For instance, the winner of the South American U-20 title automatically gets an IM title regardless of rating.

Yeah, in some local tournament here there was an 1800-rated FM. It looked strange on the pairing sheets, I must say.

Contact staff directly about this, should be just a misunderstanding.

It defies logic that you would use another person's account.

 

Anyway, contact staff directly.... include all details:
