Alia have chance for WIM norm

I was checking Alia's results and quite pleasantly surprised. She managed to win her last five games!

Furthermore she is holding six points from eight games. There is a possibility for her to get a first WIM norm. A quick check shows that she is short of either 1 point or 0.5 point (because of the possibility of dropping two games from the computations, it is not easy to work out the exact total points she requires).

If she wins or draws her game today against Netherlands then she will have achieved the norm. Even a loss is alright as long as she gets another point in the remaining two rounds against 2200 rated opponent. The possibility is very good and she has to watch who her last two opponents are. It will be wise to rest against unrated or lowly rated players.
