Rochefort Open 2011

The 10th Rochefort Open tournament was held from 19th to 25th February at the Salle Colbert at Congress Palais, in Rochefort, France. 44 players took part in the A tournament, and among them 6 Grandmasters, 9 International Masters, one Woman IM and 3 FIDE Masters.

GM Yuri Solodovnichenko dominated the tournament ever since he singled out on the top after the fourth round. Eventually he took the first place with 7.5 points from nine games, leaving the rest of the field full point behind.

WIM Iva Videnova is having a double reason to celebrate, as she earned the third and final WGM norm and also her first IM norm. Congratulations!
