lequangliemThe prestigious Aeroflot Open that featured 75 Grandmasters and five International Masters in the main Group A concluded on Wednesday with Vietnamese GM Le Quang Liem claiming the clear first place by collecting 7 points from nine games. On the final day he defeated the 2008 Aeroflot winner Ian Nepomniachtchi, rounding up an impressive performance on the Russian tour as earlier he shared first place at the equally tough Moscow Open.

The 16-year-old Wesley So, the Philippines highest-rated player with an Elo of 2656, made a short draw in the ninth round match against Venezuela's GM Eduardo Iturrizaga (Elo 2616) to finish in a tie for 7th to 19th places with 5.5 points on three wins, five draws and one loss. After the tie break point was applied, So finished 11th in the final standings. This guaranteed him the top junior position.

In group B, IM Pridorozhni, GM Glek, GM Dvoirys, IM Pavlov, and GM Panarin finished with 6,5/9 and shared the first position, with the gold going to IM Pridorozhni on better tiebreak.
