Omid Noroozi wins the 21st Fajr International Chess Tournament

Omid Noroozi grabbed the first prize at the 21st Fajr International Chess Tournament that took place on 20th – 28th February at Mashhad, northwestern of Iran.

Noroozi was proclaimed the winner after achieving an impressive 10.5/11 score, leaving his closer followers two whole points behind. The Iranian had a 2680 performance and won no less than 64 Elo points for this achievement.

He defeated a field with 19 titled players – including 4 GMs and 9 IMs -, which is even more surprising given the fact that he does not have a title.

Five players tied in second place with 8.5 points. IM Shota Azaladze had the best tie-break so took the second place. First seed  GM Ehsan Ghaem Maghami arrived third.
