Vladimir Fedoseev wins Aeroflot Open 2017

The 15th Aeroflot Open took place from 21st February to 1st March at the Cosmos Hotel in Moscow, Russia. The main event of the festival with 140.000 EUR in prizes attracted 98 players from 28 countries.

Grandmaster Vladimir Fedoseev took a clear first place with 7 points in 9 rounds. He qualified to participate in the Dortmund supertournament in July 13-24. Grandmasters Evgeniy Najer, Nikita Vitiugov (both Russia), and Vladislav Kovalev (Belarus) tied for 2nd-4th places.

Vladimir Fedoseev: “I think I won the tournament largely thanks to my fighting spirit, and lengthy and meticulous preparation. I also achieved certain progress in understanding the advantages of my style, which became possible because of an extended period of rest. The luck was on my side, too, but I myself created all the problems I faced during the tournament.”
