The final round is under way right now!

John Ludvig Hammer has won the FIDE Open with a magificent score of 8/9.

Arainne Caoili won the Women's Invitational event with a round to spare.

Last night's Korchnoi simul was tougher than the first one. Indeed, the great man lost the first two games before picking up a series of wins. As adjudication loomed, after three hours of play, the pace increased and blunders were made.

The final score was +10, =8, -6 in Korchnoi's favour.

More updates later...meanwhile, pop along to the official site for full details.
