    Talking IM Norm (and title) for Mark Plotkin!

    With a draw in round 8, FM Mark Plotkin has secured the 6.5 points needed for his final IM Norm. In addition, his FIDE rating has gone over 2400 during this tournament, meaning Mark has met all the requirements for the FIDE International Master title.

    ... and with 1 round to go he leads the tournament, so $$.

    A TREMENDOUS performance by Mark, this norm event was so thoroughly enjoyable!

    Hats off to John, who as usual was superb in ensuring the broadcasts were awesome.

    I encourage chessnuts to attend events like these in person, way more entertaining.
