The American Continental Championship has two rounds to go, but already after round nine 13-year-old U.S. IM Awonder Liang has achieved a grandmaster norm; his first, I believe. He has scored 6 points thus far, with a score of +1 -1 =4 vs. GMs (the win was against Lazaro Bruzon!) and a 3-0 score against everyone else (an IM, an FM, and the 1792 he played in round 1). With a FIDE rating of 2406 it'll take him a while to reach the 2500 standard necessary for the title (along with the other norms), but the 27-point rating gain thus far in the event is a good step in that direction.
(HT re the GM norm to Allen Becker.)
