    Some good performances here. GM Eugenio still has it (9/9!), as he showed at the Olympiad with his board prize there. And congrats to the Pakistani winner and GM Darryl.

    Hopefully Mr Lodhi will need to get his rating to 2500 before claiming GM title...

    He told us that he has had a published rating of 2500+. So all good.

    ?? Its a simple matter of checking the FIDE website. His rating is 2344 now, used to be 2430 way back in 2000 (when Anton was just a twinkle in his fathers eyes). But anyway, congratulations to this guy to making a GM norm. Hopefully it will motivate him to get it up to 2500.

    Given Lodhi's age (born 1961) it is possible he was over 2500 before 2000. The FIDE charts do not go back before then, even if the player had a rating before then. Olimpbase has longer lists, eg http://www.olimpbase.org/Elo/player/...20Mahmood.html

    Perhaps he had a live rating over 2500 in the 1990s but it does not appear he had a published one.

    He was indeed (and still is I guess) number one player in Pakistan for almost 40 years. However, I do not think he was ever 2500...

    What were Mr Lodhi's other norms? This article says he has the other two.
