The Russian Grandmaster Boris Grachev is the winner of the Basel Chess Festival 2013. Grachev scored 5,5/7, the same points as GM Levente Vajda, GM Robin Van Kampen, and GM Andrej Istratescu, but had better tiebreak score. Grachev started with quality 4,0/4, which allowed him to secure the title with three straight draws to the end.
