  Penguincw: Congrats to Deep Sengupta for his performance as the Iasi Open. Entering as the 13th seed at 2571, overall, he finished in 3rd place with 7/9 (+6,-1,=2). Probably the highlight of the tournament for him is beating top seed V Onischuk.

He also gains 13.1 points for his performance, which should bump him to a career high of 2584.1.
