Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone, 

Dimitri Reinderman (title on tiebreak) and Lisa Schut 
Dutch Chess Champions 2013

The Dutch Chess Championships were held on 5-11th July, 2013, at the Science Park Amsterdam. Both men and women tournaments were eight-player round-robins. Grandmasters Wouter Spoelman and Dimitri Reinderman shared the first place with 5,5/7 points each. Spoelman won the direct encounter but the rules called for a tie-break mini match of two games.

Reinderman won both games to claim the title of national champion.

In the women event Lisa Schut won rather convincingly with 6,0/7 points, leaving the nearest followers full two points behind. (Fide) Official website
