Shreyas royal is one of several UK IMs who should already be a GM if it were not utter failure of the fide rating system - proving today beyond all doubt that 2600-2700s in their little protected bubble are actually very vulnerable to players below them
Lose one queen and it is a disaster, Lose 1000 queens and it is just a statistic.

To quote the tournament organiser on Twitter: "Shreyas needs a draw against Mickey Adams tomorrow for a GM norm!"

He has the norm now, anyway, after a 31 move draw with Mickey.
