The Friends would like to congratulate the players who achieved norms at the Big Slick International.

In the GM event, Yang-Fan Zhou won the event and achieved his first GM norm by drawing as Black with Samuel Franklin in the last round to achieve a score of 7/9.

In the IM event, Alan Merry who was the winner of the event with 7½/9 achieved an IM norm with a round to spare.

Alex Longson qualified for his FM title in the GM event, and was just ½ point short of an IM norm.
