Washington International

Going into the last round of the 5th Washington International four players were tied with 6/8 (GM Kamsky, GM Holt, GM Moradiabadi, and IM Kiewra) closley followed by five players a half a point behind and it looked like for the first time there would not be a sole winner of the title. But, in the end the only player in the top score group able to win their game was GM Elshan Moradiabadi giving him sole first place and $4000. Five players were equal second, GM Ilya Smirin, GM Gata Kamsky, GM Conrad Holt, IM Keaton Kiewra, and IM Arthur Shen earning them all $1190.
