Norms after round 10 of the WYCC

Oct 30, 2010

FM Steven Zierk (USA) (interview with him here, here, and after R10 here), currently sharing the top position in the Open U18 section, made a GM norm! He previously covered an IM norm in round 9, but after the victory in Round 10 has increased it to GM norm. His norm is confirmed and does not depend on the result in the last round.

Two more players have achieved norms after round 10 of the World Youth Chess Championship – Anwesh Upadhyaya (IND) IM norm in the boys U18 section and FM Lanita Stetsko (BLR) WIM norm in the girls U18 section.
