The top German player and one of the best juniors in the world Vincent Keymer is now officially part of the 2700 club. With the win against IM Michał Luch in the Polish Ekstraliga, Vincent Keymer breaks the magic mark of 2700 Elo points for the first time and moves up to 42nd place in the live world rankings.
