    AUS Player Title Norm And Conditional Title Watch

    By a sort of request, this thread is a list of AUS-registered players who have achieved norms or rating requirements for the FIDE titles of GM, IM, WGM, WIM but who have yet to achieve those titles. In its early stages it will be incomplete and may contain errors and I seek help in advising me of any errors or norms not already included (excluding expired norms for long-inactive players, thanks.) "has rating" just means the player has reached the required live-rating level at some stage. Norms have not necessarily been checked but any norms known to be dubious are not counted.

    The opening post will be edited as players gain norms or qualify for titles. Once a player has received a title as is shown on their FIDE player card they will be removed from the list for that title.

    GM Norms

    Ari Dale: 1 norm, requires rating
    Junta Ikeda: 1 norm, requires rating
    Rishi Sardana: 1 norm, requires rating
    John-Paul Wallace: 1 norm, requires rating
    George Xie: 3 norms (title conditionally approved), requires rating

    (note: James Morris has rating but no norms yet.)

    IM Norms

    Arianne Caoili: 1 norm, requires rating
    Greg Canfell: 3 expired norms, requires rating
    Sam Chow: 1 norm, requires rating
    Domagoj Dragicevic: 1 norm, requires rating
    Yi Liu: 2 norms, requires rating
    Clive Ng: 1 norm (to be confirmed), requires rating
    Gareth Oliver: 1 norm, requires rating
    Tim Reilly: 2 norms, requires rating
    Tomek Rej: 3 norms (title conditionally approved), requires rating
    Eugene Schon: 1 norm, requires rating
    Nick Speck: 2 expired norms, requires rating (?)
    Malcolm Stephens: 1 norm, requires rating
    Dusan Stojic: 1 norm, requires rating
    Chris Wallis: 1 norm, requires rating

    IM Conditional Titles
    (to be added)

    FM Conditional Titles
    Clive Ng (Zonal, to be confirmed) (rating requirement not yet met)

    CM Conditional Titles
    Viney Kumar (Zonal, to be confirmed) (rating requirement not yet met)

    WGM Norms

    Irina Berezina: 2 expired norms, has rating
    Arianne Caoili: 1 norm, has rating

    WIM Norms

    Ingela Bjelobrk: 1 expired norm, requires rating (?)
    Alana Chibnall: 1 norm, requires rating
    Kathryn Hardegen: 1 norm, requires rating
    Giang Nguyen: 1 norm, requires rating
    Rebecca Stones: 1 norm (Zonal, to be confirmed)

    WIM Conditional Titles
    (to be added)

    WFM Conditional Titles
    Rebecca Stones: Zonal (to be confirmed) - rating requirement met

    WCM Conditional Titles
    (to be added)

    Note re expired norms: unregistered norms from pre-2005 are not currently valid but may in theory become valid should FIDE reverse its policy on expired norms. In 2014 a vote to reverse it was tied at commission level.

    Good work Kevin I think this list may be missing some unregistered norms, eg. Chris and Eugene have at least 1 IM norm, Australian Open 2015. I guess there are also some resident Victorians like Luke (3 IM norms) and Kanan who are close to titles, but they're not quite AUS federation yet

    This thread could be very helpful in putting together a picture of norms and expired norms from years past, so it would be helpful if all those with knowledge of players with norms without titles whose names are not listed here, to please add them.

    George Xie has already had his GM title approved by FIDE back in 2011 conditional on rating.
    See here.

    From that same Presidential Board meeting Tomek Rej is also an IM-elect. He also just needs the necessary rating.

    Thanks Bill and AzureBlue - those are added.

    I actually had norm certificates for the 2015 Aus Open already but had not looked in the right place for them when compiling the list last night!

    Hi Kevin,


    Craig Laird has numerous expired IM norms. I'm not sure if he is still active or not.

    Doesn't Anton have some GM norms? Robert Jamieson also has a GM norm

    Unfortunately some players such as Gedevani and Jamieson have long been inactive and probability of them making a comeback and earning the respective titles are rather slim. However, in case of Gedevani - would be good to follow up how many norms he has as his fide was over 2400 at some point I believe and even before coming to Australia he won an IM event in Poland around 1981/1982.

    Also the norms are expired norms (see post 1).
