Quick update from Gibraltar

IM Moulthun Ly has just (in the last minute or so) drawn with English GM David Howell, to move closer to scoring a GM norm. He is now on 5/8, having played 5 Grandmasters and his TPR is now around 2600. The pairings for the next round are obviously important, as an opponent over 2600 will mean a draw should be enough, but someone below that level may require Ly to win his round 9 game.

If he wins against his 2700 opponent, will that mean we get our newest Australian GM?

I believe he still requires another norm. Also has he been over 2500 yet?
