Wang Hao wins the 1st Sharjah Open

In the final round of the Sharjah Open Chess Championship all top players drew their respective games. The two leaders Wang Hao and Yury Kryvoruchko made a solid draw against each other, while both Adhiban and Kravtsiv had more complicated games against Radoslaw Wojtaszek and Arkadij Naiditsch, but eventually all finished peacefully as well.

It gave a chance for the group of 12 players to catch the leaders on the podium but only 2 of them managed to do so – S.P. Sethuraman and Salem Saleh.

The encounter Salem Saleh – Alexander Areshchenko was obviously a key game for the organizers and the local spectators as nothing would have been more desirable than a victory in the last round for their player. The local chess star pleased all his fans by winning hard-fought game against the Ukrainian player to share the 1st place.
