IM norm achieved, GM norm as goal for Dinara Wagner

4 wins, 3 draws, 0 losses - this is the strong record of WGM Dinara Wagner in the Sportland NRW Cup so far. After 7 rounds she has already reached the required 5 points for an IM norm.

She thus achieves her third IM norm, which is theoretically enough for the IM title, because she has far exceeded the 2400 Elo. However, since it is the third norm in a round robin tournament and the FIDE rules are not entirely clear, it is not yet clear. But the IM title is an intermediate step for Dinara Wagner, who is aiming for her second GM norm: This is 7 points from 9 games in the Sportland NRW Cup. So she still needs 1.5 points from 2 games against her national player FM Jana Schneider and IM Ruben Köllner. Besides, she might even be the German No. 1 in the women's rankings and pass Elisabeth Pähtz if she wins the remaining two games!
