Calgary International Open
Behrooz Ebrahim Shirazi, who escaped an inferior position down an exchange against Andrew Chen with a precisely played ending, plus Sean Perron and Anand Rishi Chandra finished the first day with 2/2. Anand's game in particular showed impressive maturity with a positional squeeze in round two.
On day two Anand did not defend accurately in a slightly inferior minor piece ending and lost to Kevin Qin. That meant missing out on becoming the sole event leader. That left the door open for Ebrahim to take top spot with a final round win over Kevin. Kevin Qin notably played well throughout, and remained in contention for the entire tournament.
