Five players share first at the Vizag GM International Open

Vizag GM International Open Chess Championship was held from from 23rd November to 1st December, 2011 at Swarnabharathi Indoor Stadium in Resapuvanipalem, Visakhapatnam, AP, India.

The 11-round Swiss tournament with 200 participants was organized by the All Vizag District Chess Association together with Andhra Pradesh Chess Association and under the aegis of All India Chess Federation.

The reigning India champion Abhijeet Gupta entered the final round with a full point advantage ahead of the competition but then he was defeated by the 2nd-seeded Tigran L Petrosian from Armenia.

Contrary to the usual praxis in the final rounds of open tournaments, most of the top games ended with decisive results. Henrik Danielsen defeated fellow Grandmaster Marat Dzhumaev, while Lalith Babu outplayed his compatriot Vaibhav Suri.

The total prize fund amounts to INR 1020000 ($1 equals to INR 45 approximately). First place is 200000 INR worth.
