Jan-12-11  Blunderdome: Is this one of the tournaments Sam Shankland had already committed to playing before he quit chess, or has he returned?
Feb-02-11  parmetd: But Frogbert the more important question is how many World Champions did he already finish ahead of ! lol

  Fusilli: <Blunderdome: Is this one of the tournaments Sam Shankland had already committed to playing before he quit chess, or has he returned?> Most players who announce they are quitting end up coming back, don't they? Or at least that's my unchecked impression. I think those who quit for real tend not to announce it.

  GrahamClayton: US Junior Champion Samuel Shankland (6.5 points) made a GM norm. Keaton Kiewra (6 pts), Daniel Naroditsky (6.5 pts) and Conrad Holt (6.5 pts), all made IM norms. Tatev Abrahamyan also earned a WGM norm.
