Anish Giri top in Reggio Emilia

Anish Giri
The 17 year-old Dutch star won the prestigious category 20 Reggio Emilia tournament after his closest rivals both lost in the last round. The table demonstrates how close it was with three players finishing just behind the leader. Hikaru Nakamura was leading by some way at one point, but a disastrous run-in, including his last round loss, cost him dear.

Hikaru Nakamura really threw away the tournament by losing his last three games, whereas meantime Anish Giri scored 2.5/3 (and 4/5 in the second half).

Here is the final table.
