GM Wesley So, presently the world's youngest GM, has won the 10th Dubai Open Chess Championships. His final score is seven points from 9 games, the same as 3 other players but Wesley wins the Cup on account of a superior tie-break. Top finishers are as follows:
7.0 So, Gagunashvili, Ghaem-Maghami, Li
6.5 Gupta, Drozdovskij, Laxman, Neverov, Arutinian, Ibrhahimov, Guseinov, Guliev, Salem
Filipino player IM Sadorra could manage only 5 points from a tough field that included 3 grandmasters, while Malaysia's IM Mas Hafizulhelmi collected just 4.5 points. The Malaysian will have to wait for another event to secure that elusive GM norm.
