first_saturday_logo

There were 57 players of AUT, CHN, ENG, IND, IRL, HUN, ROU, RUS, SCO, SRB, USA, VIE, competing in 6 groups.

GM:

13 year old RAPPORT Richard (HUN) hit his second GM norm with a stunning performance. He had the norm as early as after Round 10 but he won further 3 games with faultless play. He finished with TPR as high as 2680 collecting 34.2 rating points.
His style optimally combines tactical and strategic elements.

Pap Gyula (HUN) was also very close to great success approached the GM norms in three rounds but could not complete.
The Indian delegation was also a bright spot of the event, they played with uncompromising spirit. 16 year old WIM Padmini Rout (IND) performed WGM-norm at Kecskemet a week before therefore she looked tired this time and missed some clearly better positions.


yu_lie
Yu Lie (CHN) performed IM norm with 6 points of his first 9 games
