The teenager was the top seed of the event and he certainly delivered a top class performance in one of the strongest chess tournaments to take place at Bremen.

GM Pawel Teclaf (POL) scored sole 6/9 to finish second. Four players - GM Bobby Sky Cheng (AUS), GM Szymon Gumularz (POL), GM Zahar Efimenko (UKR) and GM Vojtech Plat (CZE) scored 5.5/9 each.

Position after 26...Nh6

The idea behind 26...Nh6 is simple. Black wants to access White's light square weakness on the kingside using his queen, Qg4-f3-g2 and then reroute the knight via f5-h4-f3. 27.Qb3 Qg4 28.Rc3 Nf5 29.Qc2 Rxc3 30.Nxc3 Nh4 31.Qe2 Nf3+ 32.Kh1 Rc8 Black won the game in the next few moves.
