    Arianne won this tournament by two points, performing (TPR) at 2462. Outstanding result.

    PS. Methinks she might have had a pretty good coach named Levon!

    So this is an IM norm?
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”

    Well done Arianne, but only one IM in the event (Susan Lalic) so no IM norm I don't think
    I played my best for Him Pa Rumpumpumpum

    What about a consolation prize, a WGM norm?

    1.45d For a WGM norm,at least 1/3 with a minimum 3 of the opponents (MO) must be WGMs (GM=1.5WGM, IM=1WGM, FM=1WGM).
    So. No. Looking at the field, it appears that Arianne is one of the players invited to see if other players can get norms or titles.

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.
