Le Quang Liem Repeats Performance

Le Quang Liem of Vietnam successfully defended the title which he also won last year at the Aeroflot Open in Moscow. Tiebreaks brought him victory over Nikita Vitiugov and Evgeny Tomashevsky both of Russia on 6.5 points in 9 rounds. The win qualifies him for the only non-invitational spot at Dortmund. Gata Kamsky recovered from two losses to win his last and finish at 6th with 6.0 for the USA. And our Robert Hess went to the 108th move to earn a draw with Black against the higher rated Alexander Riazantsev and finish 34th. Check out the 9th round scores from Gata and Robert below:
