The very latest International round up of English news.
Some great games, a shame Sabrina couldn't hold but that's one of the reasons I love chess, sometimes you can keep torturing your opponent until he/she crumbles. As evidence for the prosecution, I also cite baord 3; sadly I went to bed before I saw the finish of it last night!
so...round 8 draw just up...Sabrina has her final titled non Dutch player...so.....a draw and a draw in last round should see her home with a WIM norm ?...can she do better though ?...fingers crossed
David Howell won today and plays on top board tomorrow against 1 of the 2 Indian leaders - David is half a point back with 2 others in third place

good news !Leonard Barden wrote:Sabrina drew in the final round to total 4.5/9 for a tournament performance of 2265, against the WIM norm requirement of 2250, so it seems she has secured her second norm. Congratulations!
