2009 Scottish Chess Championship
An Open and a Championship combined. Today is the last Round (9). At the moment, GM Keti Arakhamia-Grant is in 6th place with 5.5, tied with several others. Leaders are: 1-3. GM S. Arun Prasad IND 2556, GM Magesh Chandran Panchanath IND 2493 and GM Mark Hebden ENG 2468 - 6.5 4-5. GM Jan Markos SLO 2555 and FM Gudmundur Kjartansson ICE 2356 - 6.0 6-12. GM Keti Arakhamia-Grant SCO 2506, GM John Shaw SCO 2462, GM Aaron Summerscale ENG 2454, IM Andrew Greet ENG 2443, FM Iain Gourlay SCO 2349, FM Craig Thomson SCO 2320 and Jonathan Grant SCO 2254 - 5.5 Keti's final round match-up: GM Keti Arakhamia-Grant SCO 2506 - IM Andrew Greet ENG 2443 You can find Keti's Round 8 game to play through at Chessdom.com. According to the official website, assuming the necessary number of players is met, places 6 through 12 will earn 100 British pounds and top female will earn 200 British pounds - I assume only the best prize will be awarded to the top female who also finishes in the money via score. Good luck to Keti.
