2nd IM norm for Brewington Hardaway!

Just one month ago, we announced Brewington Hardaway’s 1st norm for the International Master title. Well… he has earned a second and will need to earn a norm in a Swiss format. This is a new regulation to reduce the chances of earning norms in unethical ways.

“Brew” as he is affectionately called, came in joint 1st (with Gus Huston) at the Marshall Chess Club Winter IM Invitational. After gaining 24 Elo points toward his FIDE rating, he is closing in on the 2400 minimum standard. He has already eclipsed 2400 in USCF rating after getting his 1st norm. After his recent accomplishment, he promptly went to social media and gave an update.

He recently appeared in an interview with IM Kassa Korley discussing his beginnings, progress, and aspirations. He beat his first International Master at age 7 and now he is on the verge of becoming one.
