US Chess prodigy IM Ray Robson earned his second GM norm at the recent 23rd North American FIDE Invitational.

The 14 year-old Robson from Florida won the event with a score of 7/9.  His exciting round 7 game against Benjamin Finegold is shown below.

One more norm and a rating of at least 2500 and Robson will be a Grandmaster!

Robson will be 15 on October 25 this year, so he will have to be quick to get onto the all-time young GM list!
