GM norms for Deep and Arghyadip

Indian players win norms at the Cannes Open chess tournament

International Masters Deep Sengupta and Arghyadip Das collected Grandmaster norms from the Cannes Open chess tournament at Cannes on Sunday.

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.
