The Moscow Open is more than just a warm up for the more famous Aeroflot Open which follows on straight afterwards.
Indeed there are few opens to compete with The Moscow open where in a field of 187 players there were 73 GMs present. Where else would you have such a concentration of strength?
So scoring seven out of nine in a field comprising thirty-one 2600+s and sixty-eight 2500+s ensured a high performance. Inarkiev even achieved a 2800 result but on tie-break it was Chernyshov who had won more games than his rivals who came out on top.
The result of a lifetime for the relatively modest (by Russian standards!) GM.
Fellow Russians Bareev and Inarkiev as well as the less-well known Vietnamese player Le Quang Liem also made 7 points. Bologan and Rublevsky were amongst the pack on 6.5.
