Title Norms for Doeberl 2014

Ke Mu - GM Norm (N.B.: This is his first GM/IM norm. The belief he had scored a number of previous GM norms was an error in translation!)

Junta Ikeda - IM Norm (3rd and Final norm. He also scored one at the SIO, and increased his rating to 2400 which means he will be awarded the title shortly.)

Luke Li - IM norm (2nd norm to go with the one scored last year at the Doeberl.)

Otgonjargal Sengeravdan - WIM norm (2nd norm. She also scored a 3rd WIM norm at the SIO.)

Garry Kasparov at the 2014 Doeberl Cup

Our thanks to Garry Kasparov for making a memorable Doeberl Cup!
