Ivan Salgado winner of Ciutat de Barcelona

GM Ivan Salgado is the winner of the 2011 edition of the Ciutat de Barcelona chess tournament. The young grandmaster finished with 5,5/10, the same points as GM Yasser Seirawan, but better tiebreak.

Third position was for GM Kevin Spraggett, while the rating favorite GM Eduardo Iturrizaga did not participate due to a car accident.

The next event for Ivan Salgado is the European Team Chess Championship, where he will play for Spain with GM Shirov, GM Vallejo, GM Illescas, and GM Arizmendi.
