Congratulations to IM Fabiano Caruana for earning a GM norm at the First Saturday Tournament in Budapest, Hungary! He won the event with the score of 7.5 / 10 for a performance of 2634!! He also gained 18 rating points which should bring his FIDE rating to about 2510, more than enough for the GM requirement!

Great job Fabiano! I am very proud of you!

Here are the final standings.

Fabiano played his first ever USCF rated tournament at the Polgar Chess Center back on May 30, 1998! His father is also one of the most devoted chess fathers. He sacrificed so much to give Fabiano an opportunity to excel! Congrats to the whole Caruana family!
