    For anyone ever wondering, live rating applies to conditional titles just as it does to the rating limits for titles achieved by normal means. This is sort-of implied in the current regulations anyway, but not completely spelled out.

    Checking the November FIDE rating list I got a pleasant surprise that former Australian Junior Champion Ray Yang has cracked 2300 and thereby qualified for FM, reaching exactly that level after gaining 138 points in 16 games; this included 7/9 in the MCC Semi-Open RR and 7/7 in the Box Hill Winter Swiss. Quite something when just four months ago Ray's rating was only 2022! I have emailed FIDE to claim the title (ACF automatically claims and pays for FM/WFM and above); if Ray wants the certificate when we eventually get it he should email me his postal address at k_bonham@iinet.net.au . Congratulations!

    [update: title has been awarded]

    Albert Winkelman is not far away after his extraordinary World Junior performance; he is currently on 2283.

    I've been informed Albert Winkelman has crossed live 2300 during the Lidums Young Masters so we will be claiming that one once it is rated in January.

    I have claimed that and he is an FM now.
