GM Alexandr Fier of Brazil finished second with 6.5 points while International Master Pedro Antonio Gines of Spain came third scoring six points. In the ninth and last round, Gukesh drew with Cuba’s GM Martinez Duany.
With the win, Gukesh
took his FIDE rating to 2693
. If he crosses the Elo rating of 2700
, Gukesh could well become the sixth Indian to do so after Viswanathan Anand, Krishnan Sasikiran, P. Harikrishna, Vidit Gujarati and B. Adhiban..Source : The Hindu
