Kenny explains what it takes to actually become an International Grandmaster, “To become a Grandmaster you have to achieve three Grandmaster norms. One grandmaster norm means playing a nine round tournament and facing at least three Grandmasters. Over all one needs to have a performance rating of 2601 after 9 games to secure one Grandmaster norm. There is a difference between performance rating and one’s actual rating. The second requirement of becoming a grandmaster is that one needs to have the actual rating of 2500.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
