2009 FiNet Chess 960 Open Championship
Today the big ORDIX Open starts, but as part of the Mainz Chess Classic the 960 Open also hosted an incredible line-up of players! I'll try and pick out the chess femmes. US GM Gata Kamsky had the tournament in hand - he only needed a draw in the last round in order to win, but he suffered a loss and finished with 9 points. Devastating! Coverage at Chessdom.com. From Chessdom: The best female player in the FiNet was Kateryna Lahno with 8 points, Irina Gaponenko and Marie Rachel Sebag scored 7,5 points. I just checked the official website, the final standings aren't posted yet, they're only up through Round 10.
