New FIDE Titles for Americans
July 29, 2010
Mackenzie Molner's IM title was approved at the Norway FIDE Presidential Board meeting. According to Mikko Markkula of FIDE and Walter Brown of USCF, Jake Kleiman's IM title will appear on fide shortly. Robby Adamson's IM title was approved conditionally (rating). Jon Haskel earned the International Arbiter title. Congratulations to all!

Re-read Robby Adamson's excellent article on earning his second norm at the North American Masters. Also see previous US Chess Scoop interviews with Molner (July 2010) and Kleiman (April 2010), both of which touched on the subject of norms.
