Only half a point off a GM-norm performance! (Haven't checked to see whether it would have been eligible in terms of federation of opponents.) Very encouraging.

Kevin,

I have checked in regards to everything. He would have qualified, just needing the half point that is required as you mentioned. Bad luck to Justin, but superb result for him.

Excellent result. Justin putting himself in the frame for the next Olympiad!

Thanks Michael and everyone. Yes, he was a half-point off the norm, despite only one loss against six 2500s. But he did share a prize with Kamsky! (not sure Kamsky would have been too happy with that prize though ...)
