Rogers End with Win

Grandmaster Ian Rogers finished on a high note in the Reykjavik Open with a victory over local player GM Throstur Thorhallsson. Rogers' only setback in the event was a loss to GM Ahmed Adly of Egypt. Adly defeated the superstar Magnus Carlsen in the ninth round to push himself up to equal first place on 7 points with four other players.

The other Australian in the event, FM Manuel Weeks, managed only 4 points out of 9. I guess his reporting duties for the official site must have diverted his energies.
