Aryan Tari (Persian: آریـن طاری; born 4 June 1999) is a Norwegian chess grandmaster and the 2015 Norwegian Chess Champion.
Tari has played chess since the age of five. He won the Junior section of the Norwegian Chess Championship in 2012, qualifying him for the championship section in 2013. Following an eighth place finish in 2013 and a second place finish in 2014, Tari won the 2015 Championship. At age 16 he is the third youngest player to achieve this feat, after Simen Agdestein and Magnus Carlsen who won at age 15.
At the Open Norwegian Championship in Fagernes in March 2013, Tari finished in seventh place and scored a grandmaster norm, the second youngest Norwegian player ever to have done so at the time.
Tari secured his second grandmaster norm over nine rounds at the 2015 European Team Chess Championship in Reykjavik where he played Norway's third board and scored six points. A special FIDE clause for the continental team championships regards this as a 20-game norm which together with his norm from Fagernes and rating over 2500 is sufficient for the grandmaster title; this title was awarded at the FIDE congress in March 2016. He was Norway's 12th player to be awarded this title.
At the European Individual Chess Championship, played 12–23 May 2016, Tari achieved his best result in his career with 7½/11 (+5–1=5). This gave him a twenty-second place finish and earned him a berth in the Chess World Cup 2017 in Tbilisi.
Tari is from Lierskogen near Drammen. His parents both emigrated from Iran to Norway before his birth.
