Jun-18-07  spacetimereality: He needed only 15 elo points to have become a GM. Such a shame.
Jun-18-07  IMDONE4: <spacetimereality> so, are you saying that he has all 3 GM norms? Cause being 2500 does not automatically make you a grandmaster.
Jun-18-07  spacetimereality: <IMDONE4> Are you serious? I really didn't know that. Now I feel like a total idiot. *blushes* Can you please elaborate what other norms are needed for becoming a GM?
Jun-18-07  IMDONE4: Well its kind of hard to explain, so I'll let the official website do the explaining:

http://www.fide.com/official/handbo...

Basically, you can either place first in a major tournament to automatically become a GM (although this is incredibly rare since 99.9% of the winners of these tournaments are already grandmasters, or you can hold a decent standing in a tournament with other grandmasters, which will get you a norm. If you compile three of these norms within 7 years, you can become a grandmaster. hit the link for details.

Jun-19-07  spacetimereality: <IMDONE4> Thanks for the info!
Jun-18-10  newzild: I can't believe this guy has lost 480 elo points. At his current rating he is weaker than I am. Must be a mistake there somewhere...
