Results

Preview: "The International Master Norm Tournament is a ten player all-play-all event in which six of Ireland’s strongest players will compete against each other and 2 Scottish and 2 English players. This is one of the highest level International Chess events to take place in the capital. It offers some of Leinster’s Irish Internationals the opportunity to earn a norm towards achieving the title of International Master. In order to achieve a “norm” players require a minimum score of 6½/9 so a fiercely competitive tournament is in prospect with chess of the highest quality envisaged over the course of the event."
