Danny Rensch is an International Master!

Danny Rensch has become the US’s newest International Master after drawing IM Ray Robson in the 9th and final round of the SPICE Cup that was held from September 19-29 in Lubbock, Texas. The game was highlighted by the fact that Ray had to win in order to get a GM Norm. But in the end Danny drew and acheived his final IM norm!  You can get more information about this great event from Susan Polgar’s website. Danny is a member of the chess.com sponsored US Chess League team the Arizona Scorpions, which you can learn more about by visiting their blog.

This is a large step towards Danny’s ultimate goal to become a Grandmaster. Danny was impressive in this tournament as he was clearly the lowest rated out of the group and was the only Fide Master in the event.

However, he didn’t disappoint and showed in every game that he was clearly a part of this very strong group of chess professionals. Congratulations to Danny and we hope to hear from him about his great achievement sometime in the near future. You can see more about Danny including articles and tournaments from his website.

    Excellent job Danny! It was well earned having to face IM Robson in the last round who was playing for the win to get his GM title, a tough task!
