The 19th Sigeman & Co tournament of 2011 with Alexei Shirov, Anish Giri, Wesley So, Jonny Hector, Nils Grandelius and Hans Tikkanen takes place Thursday 9th through until the following Monday.

So, Giri and Tikkanen tie for first in Sigeman tournament (5)

There was a three way tie between Wesley So (name first in the official site twitter feed, I don't know if the fact he had most wins was significant), Anish Giri and Hans Tikkanen on 3/5. The final round saw just one decisive game where Jonny Hector lost to So on the white side of a French where he carved open black's king and forced it up the board but was nevertheless always losing after sacrificing material to do so.
