Re: 2nd GM norm for Daniel Fernandez

Thanks. As of 18 October 2017: 1792 FIDE Arbiters (FA) 2110 International Arbiters (IA) 439 International Organisers (IO) I had forgotten about the IO title. I guess there being more IAs despite the IA being a 'higher' title might be because the FA was maybe introduced more recently (I don't know t...

Re: Corruption scandal rocks the Bulgarian Chess Federation

Re: European Club Cup 8-14 October, Antalya

Setbacks for the English teams, though again 3Cs had some bright spots. Most of them seem to have had some good results, and playing Ashton and Quillan on boards 3 and 4 seems to have been a well judged decision.

No, he'd need to play an IM in round 7, and Dardania don't have one. Have the rules changed on this at some point? I have some vague memory (and may be confusing with something else) that at one time you only needed to play 2GMs or 3IMs for IM norm purposes (1GM counted as 1.5IMs or something?). Yo...
