    Or a IM norm - she has beaten a GM and an IM so far already!

    I believe five points would confer an IM norm and Heather Richards is on four points and playing black against John Paul Wallace in the final round.

    Thanks for the magnificent illustrated coverage on Face Book Lani.

    Nice to see you and Heather amongst the creme de la creme of international chess!

    Also amazing is the number of 100s of appreciative responses to your postings!

    I am sure this year's Gibraltar must have been one of (if not the) highlights of your career!

    Best!

    I get that it would have been a WGM norm - she had had a half-point bye so would have been 4.5/9 over the board. (As it happened John-Paul won.)
