    Ilya Nyzhnyk of Ukrain scored 2nd GM norm


    11 year old Illya Nyzhnyk from the Ukraine just earned his 2nd GM norm by winning the 6th Nabokov Memorial. He needs to gain about 100 points and one more norm to become the youngest Grandmaster in history!

    Huh? I thought he was 13 years old already. He recently won Groningen with 7.5/9 and a 2700+ TPR, ahead of a legion of GMs (a.o. Corus B participants Giri & Reinderman)

    I know. It also confused me a bit ... but I didn't want to withhold you guys the articles.

    It is amazing. Being an International Master at such an early age.
