Negi on Course

Speaking of norms, Indian young gun Parimarjan Negi has just secured his first ever GM norm. Competing in the currently running Hastings Congress, the young Indian is weaving a magical performance. After 9 rounds, he is presently on 6 points after having defeated the likes of Lalic, Erenburg and Hebden. Negi's draw against Kuzubov in the 9th secured the GM norm.

It's also worth noting that Negi had also earned his last IM norm requirement in the fourth round. He thus became India's youngest ever international master.
