  Penguincw: Congrats to Mustafa Yilmaz for his performance at the Iasi Open. Entering as the 14th seed at 2570, he finished in 2nd after tiebreaks with 7/9 (+5,-0,=4). He was also very clutch, as he went 4/4 when having white.

Rating wise, he gains 14.7 rating points to move to 2585, which looks to be a career high.
