Romanov finishes first in Cannes

Evgeny Romanov won the 26th International Open Pierre et Vacances which was held February 13-19, 2012 in Cannes, France. The top group had 61 participants, with French GM Etienne Bacrot as the top seed. Romanov finished clear first with 7/9 after a crucial last-round win against GM Sebastien Feller. Italian IM Axel Rombaldoni, who had a disappointing result in the top amateur group in Wijk aan Zee last month, finished shared 2nd in Cannes and scored his 2nd GM norm.
