Copenhagen Chess Classic

Tom O'Gorman to be announced as FIDE Master

This weekend in Copenhagen, Tom O’Gorman (2McL) beat his second International Master  in the tournament to bring his live chess rating to over 2300.

This is the threshold for the title FIDE Master (FM).  Tom’s title should be confirmed with the publication of the May rating list (in early June) and formally awarded by FIDE shortly thereafter.

We believe he may be Ireland’s youngest ever FM and St Andrew’s first!

Congratulations Tom!
