|Hasselbacken Open (2016)|
The 2016 Hasselbacken Open (30 April - 8 May) celebrated the 150th anniversary of the founding of Stockholms Schacksällskap (Stockholm Chess Club) in 1866. Scandic Hotel Hasselbacken was the tournament's host and main sponsor.
Two players - top seed Dmitry Andreikin of Russia, and Baskaran Adhiban of India - scored 7.5/9, winning their last-round games to break a ten-way tie at the top of the table. Andreikin won first prize based on tie-break criterion 1 (better Median-Buchholz score). Eleven players finished half a point behind the top two, Ilya Smirin having the best tie-break score; this group also included young talents Jorden van Foreest and Awonder Liang.

Losing in 17(!) moves with White is a catastrophe.

Hasselbacken Open rd 9: Logjam Special
|May-08-16|| ||Bratek: I wonder what Logjam Special is.I hear of Logjam for the first time in my life .Is it some variant of chess like Fisher's.Could someone please enlighten me!|
|May-08-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <Bratek> That was just the "what happens to the ten-way logjam at the top of the table?" special; ten players shared the lead with 6.5/8 with one round to go.|
|May-08-16|| ||PawnSac: < Chessgames Bookie: >|
So then we have a two way tie for first
(Andreikin and Adhiban) and an eight-way tie for 2nd. Stefansson's score is actually 6.5/9 and Axle Smith is 4.5/7 and we're missing two games from him?
|May-08-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <PawnSac> Adhiban and Andreikin were the only players to score 7.5/9, yes. As noted in the intro, 11 players finished with 7.0/9; many games played on lower boards are currently missing, and Gujrathi Vidit Santosh needs to be merged with Santosh Gujrathi Vidit.|

Hey thanks for the link! wow, 11 way tie for 2nd. With that many players in an open format it becomes a feeding frenzy! LOL
|May-15-16|| ||Mr. V: But of the two first place finishers, who won more beautifully?
A Goganov vs B Adhiban, 2016
D Andreikin vs S P Sethuraman, 2016
|Sep-17-17|| ||Tabanus: Standings updated for the 50 players with 6 points or more. Three duplicate games were found, and one wrong game result (correction slips sent). The mysterious 5-mover E Thorn vs V Mikhalevski, 2016 I requested deleted, as the two did not play each other (in Chess-Results).|
