Reykjavic Open 2013 logo.jpgThe 2013 Reykjavik Open finished with a 3-way tie for first place on 8/10 points between Pavel Eljanov, Wesley So and the Egyptian GM Amin Bassem.

The tournament will be remembered as the event where 13 year-old Wei Yi gained his 3rd GM norm to become the youngest Grandmaster in the world today, and the 4th youngest ever!

Wei Yi finished among a group of eight players just half a point behind the winners on 7½/10.

The winners (l to r): Amin Bassem, Pavel Eljanov and Wesley So

    Vorax&MrMars: Seems to me he finished on 7.5 points, only half a point behind the leaders.

    @MrMars, yeah, I was surprised at it too, he did't do well in Tata Steel 2013 either.

    In the 'notable games' section, I suggest you include both Navara-Amin in round 8, and Wei Yi-Cheparinov in Round 9. Both those games were amazing!
