The 1st Annual Washington International was held July 28 - Aug 1 just outside of Washington, DC. The strong field was led by Gata Kamsky, Alexander Onischuk, and Timur Gareev. A total of 55 players participated in the nine-round tournament. It was a nine-round tournament with a time control of 40/90, SD/30 with a 30" increment. The first two rounds had a large number of upsets. The highest rated to lose was GM Sergi Azarov from Belarus. He lost to local untitled player Jared Defibaugh.
