▬ About Vincent Keymer ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Vincent Keymer was born in Mainz, Germany. He learned chess from his parents at the age of five.
In 2015 he became European champion with the German U18 national chess team.
Garry Kasparov in 2016 referred to Keymer as exceptional, and Keymer at 11 demonstrated his potential with an impressive second prize in a strong field in the Vienna Open tournament.
In July 2017, Vincent Keymer obtained the third IM norm by which he became an International Master in chess.
He has been coached by GM Peter Leko of Hungary. Leko himself was once the world’s most promising prodigy.
From 29 March to 2 April 2018, he played in the A group of the Grenke Chess Open as the 99th seed. He won the tournament ahead of 49 grandmasters, including four 2700+ GMs, scoring 8/9 and achieving his first GM norm at age 13. He earned one-and-a-half more points than required for the GM norm. The Week in Chess said Keymer’s performance at the Grenke Chess Open is “one of the most sensational results of all time.”
His second grandmaster norm achieved Keymer in the Xtracon Open 2018 in Denmark with two rounds to spare.
From 10 October through 21 October 2019, Keymer played in the 2019 FIDE Grand Swiss Tournament, scoring 4½/11 in a world class field. This performance earned him his third and final GM Norm, making him a chess Grandmaster. Keymer said in an interview with Fiona Steil-Antoni that his third grandmaster norm should have come sooner.
