Can in Year 10 recently attended a Grandmaster Chess tournament where he was awarded the title of International Master by the International Chess Federation.
The rank is achieved by averaging a performance rating of at least 2450 over 9 or more games. The field must include at least three International Masters or Grandmasters, and a mix of players from several national federations.
Can had a remarkable showing at the tournament, with an average performance rating of 2455 across 9 matches. He was victorious in 7 out of 9.
Well done to Can for his hard work and dedication in achieving such a prestigious designation. We look forward to sharing more of his achievements as he continues his exciting chess journey to becoming a Grandmaster!
