  norami: Might as well be the first to kibitz for this young lady as well. After all, who knows?

Apr-08-15  Whitehat1963: No, Yoda, my name is not Jennifer.

  technical draw: She shops at Toys are Us.

  tamar: Jennifer R Yu, ready to rumble, is her greeting to opponents.
Nov-25-17  waustad: Her loss to the winner in the last round probably kept her a little below an IM norm in the world juniors, but at 15, it's just a matter of time.
Premium Chessgames Member
  joeyj: Well she got her WIM (direct title for Bronze @ World U20) and also qualified for a WGM norm with an Rp=2438 (2400 min level for WGM norm).
Premium Chessgames Member
  joeyj: If we count/compute her results counting only R2 to R10 (a 9-game) her results will be an IM norm (Rp= 2492 more than enough for an IM norm).

Btw, this is permitted by the FIDE handbook "For 10 rounds or more it is possible that deleting a game that has been won could be advantageous."

Or refer to: 1.42f A player may ignore his game(s) against any opponents he has defeated, provided he has met the required mix of opponents, and provided that this leaves him with at least the minimum number of games as in 1.41, against the required mix of opponents.
