Congratulations to American GM Gata Kamsky, who tied for first in the Reggio Emilia tournament in Italy with a clutch win and final score of 6.5/9. In the final round, Kamsky won against GM Zoltan Almasi of Hungary. Almasi was a full point ahead of Kamsky, so this was a must-win situation.

Italian-American Fabiano Caruana finished in joint third with 5.5/9.

See more info on the tournament on the official website (Italian), where you can find many things that require no translation, such as crosstables and games.
