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

Hello everyone,

Norwegian Grandmaster Simen Agdestein won the 3rd Oslo International GM-Group after defeating his compatriot GM Leif E Johannessen in the last round to conclude the event with 7,0/9 points. Agdestein is in excellent shape this summer, having dominated in Sant Martí Open and Telenor World Cup Blitz, and narrowly missing the title in Dieppe Open. Evgeny Postny (Israel) and Andrei Istratescu (France) shared the second place with 6,5 points each. IM Benjamin Bok of the Netherlands made a GM-norm, while WFM Raghavi Nagarajan of India fullfilled her WIM-title by passing 2200 in Elo. Replay the games with analysis via Chessdom.
