    Our open team was a bit unlucky in being in the bottom half of the score group in the last round so got a hard match instead of an easier one. Daniel Gong missed a few wins in his game and had to settle for a draw, leaving him half a point short of an IM norm, but his performance clearly showed the IM title is not out of reach. John Stark needed to win to get a direct FM title but couldn't quite pull it off.
    Would John win his last round game, he would qualify for an FM title while rated 2028...and performing below his rating .

    I think the FM titles are conditional on a player getting their rating over 2100.

    There are 44 conditional FM titles list here https://chess-results.com/tnr653631....art=60&flag=30

    There were also 8 GM norms and 8 IM norms from the olympiad including 2 Sri Lankans and a Zimbabwian getting IM norms. https://chess-results.com/tnr653631....art=62&flag=30

    The post I was quoting says ''direct'' title so I assumed its not conditional. Re players from no chess countries getting norms - I think its absolutely great! gives some of them a rare chance to fight for the norms and earn them fair and square!

    Yes, definitely. She played her first Olympiad in 1978 and has played on the Sweden Open team a number of times. It must also be great to play on a team with your daughter.

    John Stark's rating has been over 2200 in the past so he easily meets the requirements for the direct FM title. Sad that he missed out.
