Pardubice is a magnet for many players looking for a total chess experience in mid-summer. The three players on the podium certainly enjoyed their trip as Tikkanen achieved a GM-norm (there were two others this year as well as nine IM norms!)and the young Seturaman continues to impress.
There were many other events including four lower-ranking opens, a rapid (the Czech open) featuring Navara and Movsesian (won by Alexander Rakhmanov of Russia).
The three blitz tournaments were won by travelling GMs: Sergei Iskusnyh (Russia), Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (Azerbaijan) and Ghaem Magrami (Iran)
