A review of the 9th round
Our tournament ended relatively peacefully, although GM Halkias and Khenkin did everything they could to improve their tournament rankings. Playing with White against Tobias Koelle and Josefine Heinemann, the grandmasters achieved promising positions but could not make use of them. So all the games of the last round ended in draws.
The winner of the tournament is the Polish Grandmaster Michal Krasenkow. We can also congratulate FM Koelle and Weishaeutel who achieved the IM norms (the official confirmation from FIDE is expected in the next few weeks).
