Manish becomes IM!

Manish Anto Cristiano from India has completed his IM-title requirements in a tournament in Vezerkepzo, Hungary after 8 of the 9 rounds have been completed. Today he was better with Black against GM Gabor Nagy. But a draw was enough to secure the final IM-norm required, no matter the result in the final round. Manish has two previous norms and was over 2400 in 2019, so at the next FIDE congress, Manish will get the title. Congratulations, Manish!

You can see all the cheering for the two in this forum post, with Brendan corresponding flawlessly every day.
