How many Armenian Grandmasters do you know personally? Who is your favorite?
P.S. Of course after Avetik Grigoryan :)
I missed Avetik's visit to US, so I've actually never met a GM in person. Would be amazing to meet Aronian; he seems like a very nice person.
I love Levon Aronian and his attitude.
I never met any GM in my life. You know I am different kind of person. I like to meet when the other person will remember me. I do not know why people like to show off. My friends told me all time like hey I have pic with Vishy and bla bla bla. I ask them that's wonderful but he will remember you? Then they become quiet. For me I wanna do something then meet gms so atleast they will remember me. For example see coach avetik. I will be happy to meet him in rl and take selfies and I will say to all like see this is my mentor and and he is GM.
I am like nothing right now so first of all I have to work so I can improve my skills and then play with gms or meet them for work or study or playing events and then meetings and selfies. I also believe in simplicity. I live for chess and chess is everything for me.
Note: It's just my opinions. I am not trying to insult those who are interested in taking selfies or autographs from GMs. For me, . I respect everyone's choices. But for me it's nothing without success.
I have met Avetik (My favorite of course)
All of these GM's are amazing people and I feel lucky to have met each one.
