Negi learned to play chess at the age of four and won the Asian U10 Championship in 2002. He progressed like a rocket and in July 2006 at the age of 13 years, 4 months and 22 days he became the second youngest grandmaster in history, beating Magnus Carlsen’s mark by five days and trailing only Sergey Karjakin. Negi was unable to maintain that pace, but in 2008 he began to climb the rating list again, tying for first place (and taking home $11,100) at the 2008 World Open in Philadelphia and finishing in clear second half a point behind compatriot Abhijeet Gupta at the World Junior Championship. Negi has so far failed to break into the ranks of the elite, but he continues to post impressive results in opens and championship events, for instance winning the Politiken Cup in 2009, the Indian Championship in 2010, the Bad Wiessee Open in 2011 and the Asian Continental Championship in 2012.
