Rej just needs to score enough rating points to elevate his rating to 2400 to be a licensed IM, but it'll be a tougher task for Steadman. In this event alone, Steadman will need 6 from nine to bag a norm. Of course, the Kiwi will be also be hoping to get in some good practice before heading out to join his compatriots in Khanty-Mansiysk for the Chess Olympiad.
Good luck to these guys!
"Deelnemers" means participants.
FM Steadman will continue to the First Saturday event in Budapest - we are all hoping he will have all three norms before joining us at the Olympiad!
awesome - go Steadman !
