GM Maxime Lagarde triumphs at the 20th Sautron Chess Open

The 20th edition of the Sautron International Chess Open 2022 took place from 3-10 July at the Espace Phelippes Beaulieux. The event attracted nearly 100 entries who fought for the throne of the two sections: A and B. The tournaments were played in 9 swiss rounds, with time control: 90 minutes for 40 moves, plus 30 minutes till the end of the game, with 30 seconds increment per move, starting from the move one.

GM Maxime Lagarde triumphed in the Open A tournament scoring 8/9 points. Two players tied for the second place with 7 points, each, with the tiebreak criteria determining the final places. Mohapatra Sidhant had better Bucholz and claimed silver, while Bala Chan Dhulipalla came third.

Marc Gourier was the sole winner of the B section with 7.5/9 points. Three players tied for the second position, with Dewi Guegueniat winning the silver medal with the best tiebreaks, Antoine Giraud was third and Tushig Ganbat came fourth. (scroll down for final rankings of both sections)

Simultaneously with the 20th Sautron International Chess Open, the Sautron Chess Club set the largest chess piece in the world, unofficially breaking the Guinness record.
