GATA KAMSKY’S PHOTO FINISH AT THE 2009/2010 EDITION OF REGGIO EMILIA!

A GREAT FINAL ROUND VICTORY – for the fans!

Gata Kamsky & Zoltan Almasi defined this years Edition of Reggio Emilia.

Just click on the above image to get a clearer “picture”.

With an excellent cast of fellow players!

The final round was an amazing event unto itself – out of 5 games 4 of them were decisive.  The game to determine whether or not Zoltan Almasi would finish alone in first place or in a tie with Gata Kamsky took place in one of the best events to ever take place in Italy – in my opinion.

Gata Kamsky-  having the White pieces – outplayed Zoltan Almasi in a complex theoretical Ruy Lopez battle and ended up not only sharing first place but winning a little extra first place kudos on tie-breaks.  I think both of these outstanding players deserve full credit for their excellent efforts during this amazing event and a tie for first between them is an honorable outcome.  One they both fully deserved.
