I hope this is faulty transmission. If not, any norms are likely to be questioned.
I think not - a stitch-up!
Round eight games:-
Dobrov - Lundin 1- 0 (36 moves)
Pikula - Drazic 1/2 - 1/2 (11 moves)
Fang - Fernandez 1/2-1/2 (6 moves)
Dimitrov-Rogac 1/2-1/2 (8 moves)
Minko - Annaberdiev 1/2-1/2 (12 moves)
There is an IM tournament being run alongside this grandmaster norm event - the games in there are being played properly; two English players (Michael Fernandez and Stephen Whatley) are playing in the IM norm event. The tournament organiser is GM Drazic who is playing in the GM event. He has already drawn with Fang today - Fang winning on 6.5/9!
