Aeroflot Open, Moscow 2002

The 1st Aeroflot Open in 2002 was probably one of the strongest open tournaments of all time, since among the total of 132 players there were more than 80 grandmasters and almost all remaining participants were IM's. With a rating Elo 2407 I was seeded 127th, as in the tournament only players with Elo more than 2400 were allowed to participate. I finished in 35th place and over-fulfilled by a half point my first GM norm.

Ashot Nadanian. Result: 5 out of 9, Rating Average: 2612, Rating Performance: 2649.

Opponents and results:
Round 1: IM Izoria, Zviad (2547) GEO 1
