Surabaya Flag of Indonesia. 2002.07.22-29. 11 rounds Round Robin. 12 players. Rating average 2446. Category VIII. 3rd GM norm.

 35th Olympiad, Bled 2002 

Bled Flag of Yugoslavia. 2002.10.25-11.11. 14 rounds Swiss Team. 8.5 VP in 10 games. Opponents’ rating average 2403. 4th GM norm. The minimum rating of 2500 surpassed. GM title completed.


What makes Cerdas Barus a unique chess player is not only he is a GM but he is deaf.

Cerdas hails from Kabanjahe, Tanah Karo. Tanah Karo is known with a tradition of producing many excellent chess players such as Narsar Karokaro, Si Tumbuk, Si Ngukum, Merlep Ginting, Monang Sinulingga to name a few.

He knew chess at the late age of 14. It was not even the ‘ordinary’ chess, but Karo chess which has the different rules. He only focused more to the ordinary chess when his family moved to Medan in 1978. At this city he honed his skill with national class players like David Purba and Thomas Ginting. Cerdas was really talented. He could catch up quickly. In 1981 he came second in North Sumatera Provincial Chess Championship. In his first National Championship, Bandung 1982, Cerdas won National Master title.

His international career began in 1983 as a member of Medan team which participated in Asian Cities Championship in Hong Kong. It was followed by Chess Olympiad in Greece a year later. After this Olympiad 1984 he had been practically involved in the most, if not all, of Indonesian important chess events for almost three decades.

Cerdas might recall 2002 as the golden year. In addition to being National Champion, he was also the winner of Hamzah Haz Open Jakarta and the runner-up of Wismilak International. In November he hit his peak on Chess Olympiad held at Bled, Slovenia. Cerdas won a gold medal for the third board after collecting 8.5 VP out of 10 games. The achievement also meant Cerdas had completed the requirement of GM title. Actually Cerdas didn’t need a norm anymore but the Bled Olympiad raised his rating above 2500, the minimum requirement for GM title. He got other three GM norms in National Invitation Jakarta 1997, Vũng Tàu Intourco 2000, and previously mentioned Wismilak Surabaya 2002.

Since getting his GM title Cerdas Barus has been continuously being part of Indonesia chess élite. At the twilight of his chess career, he was still able to prove that he was good enough to be a member of Indonesian team for SEA Games 2011.
