FM Ryan Harper

Trinidad’s FM Ryan Harper has been his island’s national champion for a number of times. Having broken the dominance of countryman FM Christo Cave, he has ventured out find opportunities for IM norms. Harper is competing in the New York International with seven GMs and 14 IMs. GM Jaan Ehlvest is top seed and at press time, he was been knocked from the top board. Currently, Harper is having a good result at the tournament and has beaten WIM Iryna Zenyuk (2311), FM Daniel Yeager (2378) and IM Irina Krush (2474). No word on whether Harper will play in either the Philadelphia International or World Open.
