Referring to the very complicated Requirements For The Titles Designated from FIDE Handbook, Mok have a very good chance to meet the requirement for IM norm after round 7 based on Tables 1.49a, FIDE Handbook ( see below) . If he got the IM norm in this tournament, it will be his second norm ( one source said three (3) ?) so he only have to reach the 24oo FIDE rating mark to confirm his title.

Tables 1.49a

These tables have been prepared such that the minimum average rating of the opponents is 2380 for a GM norm, 2230 for an IM norm, 2180 for a WGM norm and 2030 for a WIM norm, as required for the respective titles.
The minimum score is 35% for all titles.
Except world or continental championships the norm achieved in a tournament with more than 13 rounds counts only as 13 games.
