Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

The Romanian National Championships 2013 for men and women took place from 15th-24th February at the Hotel Parang in Olanesti, Romania. GM Constantin Lupulescu took the top prize after defeating GM Andrei Murariu in a dramatic last round. Lupulescu collected 8.5/11 points, same as IM Lucian-Costin Miron, and got the gold thanks to his better score in the tie-breaks, according to a Chessdom report. This is the fourth title of national champion for Lupulescu.

Top rated GM Mircea-Emilian Parligras arrived third, after edging the other three players in the tie-breaks.

IM Cristina-Adela Foisor won the women’s championship for third year in a row. She finished clear first with 7.5/9 points, leaving the closest followers a whole point behind
