Portugal Open-2018The Serbian grandmaster Aleksandar Indjić is the winner of the Portugal Open 2018

The strongest tournament ever held in Portugal, that gathered 272 chess players from 42 countries in the second pavilion of the Municipal Sports Complex of Vistoso Casal, in Lisbon.

Indjić made 7.5 points in 9 possible, the same as the Russians Anton Demchenko and Nikita Petrov, but had a better tie-breaker to claim the title, after being runner-up in the 2017 edition.

As Demchenko confirmed its credits as number 71 in the world as second placed, Petrov made his the third and final norm to achieve the title of grandmaster.

The best Portuguese in the Open was the IM Rui Dâmaso, who scored 7 points and achieved the 12th place after beating in the final round the Turkish GM Vahap Sanal.
