Another IM norm for Justin

Congratulations to Woodbridge School’s Justin Tan, who has achieved his second International Master norm, following an excellent performance in this season’s 4NCL.

He played in nine rounds, scoring an unbeaten 6½ points.   This included three draws against GMs, as well as two wins and a draw against IMs.   The average rating of his opponents was 2394, resulting in a rating performance over the nine games of 2560.

Had he beaten GM Matt Turner last Saturday (and he’s cross because he should have won), his performance would have been 2614 – a Grandmaster norm!
