Bangladesh Got It's 5th GM: Enamul Hossain Rajib

I knew it was only a matter of time for Rajib to be Grand Master. And he did it in the 2008 Bangladesh National Championshiop securing 10 points out of 12 gaining the 3rd GM norm required and being runner up of the event behind GM Ziaur Rahman who secured 11 points. Razib's excellent performance of beating Pavel Eljanov last November in World Chess Cup 2007 (Russia) convinved me that the third GM norm for him is no far.

It's also good to know that Shakil and Sagor got their 1st IM norm from this national championship with 9 points. So now Bangladesh has 5 GMs, 1 IWM and several FMs in Chess which is a good achievement considering the overall sports performance in other sectors.
