The 76th Chess Championship of Brazil was held on 2-11th December at the Parque Ecológico Municipal in Americana.  Twelve players, top four from the 2008 Championship, five from semifinals and three seeded by the federation, competed in a round robin tournament. GM Andre Diamant defended the last year's trophy.

GM Giovanni Vescovi (photo) collected 8.5 points for a clear first place and his sixth title of the Brazilian national champion. Vescovi equalised the record of GM Gilberto Milos who also holds six trophies.
