Arjun Erigaisi is the strongest 18 year old in the world #TweetOftheDay

Arjun Erigaisi is now the highest rated 18 year old player in the world! Erigaisi recently played the French team championship Top 16, where he gained +0,7 ELO . The real reason for gaining the highest rating spot in the U18 list is not anyone losing or gaining ELO, rather Hans Niemann turning 19 years old today. But have no doubt, Arjun Erigaisi has a bright future ahead. He best sums it up in a tweet, saying, “What a year of chess it has been! 216 classical games, 352 days, +121.5 rating, lots of fun starting from Serbia open 2021 for which I left right after Champions Chess Tour’s Goldmoney Asian Rapid. Time for a break before my second CCT followed by Olympiad!”
