My personal opinion is to do away with these titles in chess. I know several instances of tournaments being fixed in order to help players attain the required norms and then get the GM titles. There have been instances of players throwing away matches for money to enable their opponents get these titles.

Australia will be represented in the Mumbai event by FM Lee Jones. We wish Lee all the very best in his battles! No doubt Lee would have had a few tips from brother-in-law IM Gary Lane. In 1988, Gary, then playing under the English flag, was the Commonwealth Chess Champion.
