The official website of the 6th Asian Individual Chess Championship is reporting that IM Darwin Laylo has just bagged his third and final GM norm. He also has good chances of even becoming a full grandmaster, hitting the 2500 rating mark, by the tournament's finish if he can managed to score the required results. Laylo must achieve 1.5/2 from the last two games.
It will be a hard last two rounds for Laylo. His next opponent is Vietnam's GM Le Quang Liem.
With two rounds to go, China's Zhang Pengxiang leads on 7 points, followed close behind by three players on 6.5 points.
