    Default Shulman Wins Montreal International

    The final 9th round was played tonight, and USA GM Yuri Shulman ended up in first, after leading for much of the tournament, a full point ahead of 2nd/4th ( 6.5 pts. ). In 2nd/4th at 5.5 pts. were USA GM Varzuhan Akobian ( the only decisive game of the round, defeating 2 time Canadian Champion, GM Pascal Charbonneau ), and USA GM Hikaru Nakamura ( highest rated player in the tournament ). Canadian GM Mark Bluvshtein, is shown on the results table as having an unplayed game against GM elect, Anton Kovalyov, and thus only 5 pts., rather than 5.5 pts, tying him for second. But he and Kovalyov played in the last round and drew, so it must just be that the results table has not been completed. Thus Blluvshtein ties for 2nd/4th as well.

    Other Canadian scores were:
    3.5 pts - Charbonneau and 2006 Canadian Champion, IM Igor Zugic
    2.5 pts. - IM Thomas Roussel-Roozman

    GM elect, Anton Kovalyov, who plays for Argentina , but now lives with his family in Canada, scored 3.5 pts.( though currently shown on the results table as having and unplayed game with Bluvshtein; likely just not completed yet ).
