Yeoh Li Tian currently playing in the 2016 Australasian Masters Tournament in Australia is closing in on his third (some say fourth) IM norm. He has 6.5 points from seven games, winning six and drawing one. He needs just another half point from the remaining two games.
His score also means he is leading the tournament with his closest competitor half point behind. They are scheduled to meet in the last round possibly determining who will be the champion.
