Fier and Granda dominate Floripa Open
Quick 1-Minute Summary
When the smoke had cleared, both Alexander Fier and Julio Granda tied for first with a fantastic 9 points each (out of 10!), with Fier taking the trophy by virtue of tiebreak. Congrats to both players!
Granda’s Pairings compared to Fier’s Pairings
It is not often that one sees two players get 9 points from 10 each, but it does happen. The tournament had a single section with more than 450 players.
I suppose that Fier fully deserved winning the trophy on tiebreak as he played a somewhat stronger field than Granda: 5 GM’s vs 3 GM’s. The game between Granda and Fier ended in a draw.
