The ACP Golden Classic was won by Vassily Ivanchuk with a score of 5/6 undefeated. He beat Anna Muzychuk who nevertheless finished on 50% for an excellent result. Gata Kamsky beat the luckless Jobava Baadur and Le Quang Liem drew with Emil Sutovsky in an excellent final round. Nice photos below from Frits Agterdenbos The games of the event weren't rated. The event saw adjournments at move 40 for the first time in many years at the top level but it was the extra half hour of thinking time to move 40 that probably made the most difference to the quality of the games.
