Sergey Fedorchuk, who was the co-leader before the last round, was defeated by Le Quang Liem, but Alexander Moiseenko outplayed the legendary GM Jaan Ehlvest to catch the Indians on the shared first place.

Ganguly Surya Shekhar is declared winner on best tie-break score.

The young Chinese Ma Qun achieved a fantastic 2732-performance but he already met the requirements for the Grandmaster title, pending approval of the FIDE PB in January in Yerevan.

The Master Tournament offered $ 50,500 in prizes.
