Gibraltar 2007

The hunt is on again for Moulthun Ly for those master norms. He will join compatriots GM Ian Rogers, IM David Smerdon and Malcolm Tredinnick in the Masters section of the 5th Gibraltar Chess Festival. Moulthun, currently sporting a FIDE rating of 2307, needs a third IM norm. The Queensland junior earned his first in last year's World Open in the US and followed by a second one in the Essent Open.

IM norm for Moulthon my A! Let's wish him his first GM norm! If ever there is a place to get one, especially with what little chances we get in Australia, then surely Gibraltar is it! :D
