The World Junior Championship is an 11-round Swiss open taking place in Tarvisio, Italy from 13-25 November 2017. The winner becomes the World Junior Champion and receives 2,500 Euros and the GM title. The 2nd and 3rd placed players receive the IM title.

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.
