Indian players win norms at the Cannes Open chess tournament
Deep’s third GM-norm came after he drew with Frenchman Christian Bauer in the ninth round and final round to tally seven points that made him part of the three-way tie for the title.
Deep eventually finished third after the tie-break scores were taken. Tigran Gharamian (France) took the title and Vadim Malakhatko (Belgium) finished runner-up.
Arghyadip finished in a remarkable fashion when he scored the much-needed victory over top seeded Kazakh Murtas Kazhgaleyev to reach six points, worth the eighth spot.
