    Congrats to Larry and Chess'n Math. An very long list of great players the program has created. Just curious if that list is located somewhere?

      Congratulations, Shawn!! Excellent play when it mattered most against a very strong field!!

      Seeing your fantastic play at the Canadian Closed, Kingston 2022, I thought the GM title would be possible for you within two to three years!!

      All the best going forward, and I really hope you are selected to the Canadian Team for the Budapest 2024 Olympiad!!

          Finally, FIDE approved new titles.

          Also, 4 new FIDE Arbiters (Nicolae Oancea, Tony Boron, Anabelle Kovatcheva and Daniel Rokhvarger).

              Probably, for the first time FIDE Congress granted 2 titles for one Canadian family.

              FA A.Kovatcheva and IM A.Atanasov. Mother and son.
