IM David Eggleston

Post by Sean Hewitt » Sun Oct 27, 2013 2:07 pm

Congratulations to David Eggleston who, with a first round win in Germany, has now passed the 2400 rating barrier. Given that he has more IM norms that anyone in history :lol: and his title has already been approved subject to rating, the award of the title is now a formality.

And just to be sure, he beat GM Delchev (2643) yesterday.

cheers Lawrence although I'm pretty sure Chris has several more than the 3 listed.... I thought he told me he had 5 when I spoke to him many years ago... has anyone contacted Chris to check? I could of course be mistaken.

I did check with him prior to submitting his IM title application (subject to him reaching 2400) which FIDE subsequently rejected as one of the norms was a performance norm only (below 2450 with his own rating included) despite it being signed off by the relevant tournament arbiter and cleared by FIDE prior to the application :cry:

John Richardson does have quite a collection of norms though so maybe it was him you spoke to.

With one round to go David has 6/8 at Bad Wiessee. He has met and scored 2/2 against four GMs in the tournament. and beaten everybody else so far.

Adam Hunt is also 0n 6/8. A good show for the English players who lie 17th= in a tournament with just the one section of 476 players!

Sadly Adam's round 9 opponent is rated too low (and untitled) for him to be able to get a GM norm with a win :cry:

Ack. That's agonising. Does he have the rating requirement already, or does he need that in addition to the norm?
