Dortmund 10: Kramnik wins Dortmund for the ninth time
12.07.2009 – This is definitely his tournament: Vladimir Kramnik won it eight times previously, and after an inauspicious start the former World Champion mopped up in the second half to finish a full point ahead of his nearest rivals. They were Peter Leko, Magnus Carlsen and Dmitry Jakovenko, all at 5.5/10 points. Kramnik's performance: 2848. Final report with statistics.

  1. Thank you for being kind, but your blog is much better and has more appeal to the chess world.

    Some excellent chess blogs are "Jim West On Chess" and "The Kenilworthian" both on my blog list, also Fearless Chess and F Pawn are honorable mention.....diamondback
