100 rating point in one tournament

I never thought it is possible to gain a hundred points in a single tournament. But I was pleasantly surprised to see one of our local players achieve this at the Malaysian Chess Festival that concluded on Sunday.

Nithya is only rated 1710 yet she choose to enter the tougher Open section instead of the Challengers. She played five titled players , drawing a grandmaster! Though she lost three of her last four games it was still an amazing result. Check out the screen shot below.

This rating gain should put her in the Malaysian women's top ten on the next FIDE list. Well done.

Grandmaster must be in shock after that.
