  Penguincw: Oops. Premature celebration. ;)
Sep-13-18  Brettwith2ts: That's interesting, I didn't know getting the GM title without having another title first was possible. Are there any others in recent memory who have done something similar?
Sep-13-18  Sally Simpson: Off the top of my head I know Tal went to G.M. without being an I.M. but that is not recent.
