Congratulations to 14 year old Tom O Gorman from Dun Laoghaire Chess Club for today breaking through 2300 ELO and qualifying for the FM title.
Tom is currently playing in the Copenhagen Chess Challege where this morning he beat a 2440 rated IM to reach a live rating of circa 2307 elo.
Tom followed up this mornings victory with a draw against another IM this afternoon (2351) which leaves him on a score of 4.5 after 7 rounds.
Tom played board 1 for Dun Laoghaire in the Armstrong division this season and was a member of the successful Irish Glorney cup winning teams of 2015 and 2016
Well done Tom!
Another titled player to add to my list of scalps (twice!)

Well done Tom, following in well trodden paths. But getting titles earlier these days
