Liu, Qingnan vs. Harmon-Vellotti, Luke at World Open 2012

A number of players earned norms this year. GM norms were scored by IM Marc Arnold, IM Eesha Karavade and FM John Bryant. IM norms were scored by FM Michael Kleinman, FM Thomas Bartell, Yaacov Norowitz and Luke Harmon-Vellotti. 13-year-old Luke Harmon-Vellotti achieved his second IM norm. Luke, an 8th grader and aspiring physician from Boise, Idaho, said his toughest game was his 100-move Round 5 game against IM Qingnan Liu of China. “It came down to the end game,” Luke said. 2012 World Open Chess Standings Chess Games 2012 World Open

  1. Hi,
    This is Glenn Wilson, the creator of ChessFlash. I know you have not published much lately, but your blog is great! Thanks for using ChessFlash.

    I noticed that your ChessFlash background color does not match your page background color. I think that 4c2b1d is your page background color.

    The next time your publish a game with ChessFlash if you enter 4c2b1d for the Background Color Override I think you will like the effect -- it will blend in better. See http://chessflash.com/pgnviewerfaq.html for more information. You can also play around with the Color Themes for the best customized effect.
