Gashimov Wins Reggio Emilia
Submitted by SonofPearl on Chess.com
The 2010/11 edition ran from 28 Dec - 6 Jan and produced some sparkling chess, with the Azerbaijani Vugar Gashimov (pictured) emerging as the tournament winner.
Francisco Vallejo Pons also had a strong showing, but just missed out by virtue of a weaker tie-break score. Gashimov's only loss was a wild first round defeat to Nigel Short. The Englishman won his first two hair-raising games, but slumped to a poor result overall.
The final cross-table:
|Vallejo Pons, Francisco||ESP||2698||0||*||½||1||½||½||1||½||1||1||6|
|Short, Nigel D||ENG||2680||1||0||0||0||0||0||½||1||*||1||3½|
