    What puzzles me is that the last-place finisher was unrated.

    Thanks!  It was a lot of fun:) Definitely a fabulous event:) In the last round if I had won against GM Victor Mikhalevski I would have had a GM Norm, but in the end pushed to hard for the win and lost.

    Congratulations to GM Ray Robson for his win! And others who scored a Norm!

    @SerbianChessStar

    This is now my fourth IM Norm!
