13-year-old Darwin Yang clinched his second IM norm at the B group round robin at the SPICE Cup at Texas Tech University with a round to go. Darwin earned his first earlier this year at the Spring SPICE Cup. GM Anatoly Bykhovsky & GM Gergely Antal of Israel tied for first with 6/9.

Meanwhile, GMs Georg Meier (Germany) and Alexander Onischuk lead the double round robin A group with two rounds left.

The adoption of Sofia rules has created lots of long and intense games. Onischuk and Meier traded wins with White.
