Jan-30-07  BIDMONFA: Dmitry Bocharov



The 11th edition of the strong Dubai chess open tournament is over. The winner is the Armenian GM Tigran Kotanjian who finished with 7,0/9. With the same points finished GM Bocharov and GM Anastasian, but Kotanjian won the first place with a better tiebreak.

A total of 34 GMs participated in the event, most of them within 100 ELO margin. That created a very dynamic event and many surprises were seen during the course of the competition. One of the best performances was for IM Kidambi Sundararajan (IND), who finished 6th, just half a point behind the leaders. The two top youngsters GM Gopal and GM Safarli finished 19th and 20th with 6,0/9.

The Dubai chess open started back in 1999. Since then there are 11 champions, the last one being GM Tigran Kotanjian. Here is a flashback from the past events from Dubai. It is the tournament where Magnus Carlsen became a GM (6th edition), one of the first top events won by GM Wesley So, and among winners we can see Mamedyarov, Sargissian, Goloshchapov, Asrian, Jobava, Akopian.
