Baskaran Adhiban the winner of the 2018 GAMMA Reykjavik Open

Reykjavik OpenGAMMA Reykjavik Open 2018 was held from 6 to 14 March.
This time the tournament was dedicated to the Chess – King Bobby Fischer.
248 players took part in the tournament.

Before the 8th round it was announced that GAMMA will be renewing their sponsorship deal for another three years! It is also clear that Harpa will be available as the playing venue.
After the announcement, Agnar Tomas Moller made the first move on board one for Adhiban against Rapport. Seemingly the move 1.d2-d4 turned out to be good enough for Adhiban.
Heading into the last round, GM Baskaran Adhiban was a sole leader and had to face Mustafa Yilmaz with the black pieces in a decisive game for the title.
He drew and took the first place with 7,5 out of 9.
GM Maxime Lagarde and GM Mustafa Yilmaz shared 2-3 place with 7 points.
