IM Esserman- now official

A few months ago, we reported here that Boylston Chess Club Board member Marc Esserman had reached the International Master title qualifications. Some people balked at the many "good jobs" and "way to gos" as premature, as FIDE had yet to officially recognize it.

It is now officially recognized by FIDE. See here.

Congratulations, Marc! Well deserved. Keep banging out miniatures as you do in the US Chess League, and we may soon be posting a GM notice on these pages.
