Artyom Timofeev has won this year’s Moscow Open, after a marathon last-round game against the leader Ernesto Inarkiev, who had just won 7 games in a row. Anna Muzychuk won the ladies tournament.
Timofeev became clear first with 7.5 out of 9, before Alexander Riazantsev and Sergey Volkov. Anna Muzychuk (Slovenia) won the ladies tournament with 8 out of 9, after a quick last-round draw against Harika Dronavalli (India).
And so the tournament was won by two quite young players. 23-year old Artyom Timofeev, the current #51 in the world.
The succes was even more special for Anna Muzychuk, who at only 17 years old is becoming a very strong player very fast. She was born in Ukraine but is now representing Slovenia. She’s third in the world in the girls under 20 list, behind Hou Yifan and Katarina Lahno.
The best Israeli player was GM Max Rodshtein. He has finished on 21 place with 6,5 points.
