Adam Hunt (at the British)

Post by Jon Tait » Wed Aug 04, 2010 10:50 am

...is doing very well against very strong opposition (6 GMs, 2 IMs so far)

anyone know how many points he needs for a GM norm?

There were posts on this yesterday. The answer is zero.

Zero more, that is. If you could get GM norms for scoring zero...

Does Adam have any other GM norms?

Hopefully if he becomes a GM it will encourage his sister to start playing more again. Their mother once told me that it was having a younger chess-playing brother snapping at her heals that pushed Harriet into becoming such a strong player herself.

I've beaten Adam twice. Harriet, no.

I suppose playing someone with such high grading helps in the norm hunt! Is this is first norm?

According to the FIDE site, the only English player who currently has a GM norm is Thomas Rendle:

That can't be right, can it?

Jon,

I think that list is what FIDE know about, I think Andrew Ledger has at least 1 Norm and also Richard Pert has acheived a norm as well

I don't think so, I think that it is approximately a 2560 performance and he cannot remove his weakest wins either

So why is that not a GM norm? Also Hartston must have a GM norm, amongst many others.

A GM norm has to be a performance over 2600 (IM Norms are over 2450)
