The 47th edition of the Doeberl Cup International Chess Tournament
concluded at Canberra, Australia, today on 13th April 2009. IM Deep
Sengupta made it a memorable event for India by winning the first place
and gaining his second GM norm in the process. With the same points, but worse tiebreak, finished two more players. Second place once again goes to GM Gawain Jones. GM Deepan Chakravarthy,
who beat eventual champion Deep Sengupta in the last round, finished third.

Half a point behind the medalists come the local top players – IM George Xie, IM David Smerdon, and GM Darryl Johansen.

A strong Indian contingent of 15 players participated in this
tournament. WFM Pon.N.Nkrithika scored her 3rd and final WIM norm, while the Indian champion WIM Kruttika Nadig finished in top 15 with 5,5 points. Other
Indian prize winners were IM Sriram Jha (7th position ) and GM Abhijit
Kunte (8th position ).

In the Blitz 960 Chess tournament which was organised on a big scale
the Indian IM trio of Satyapragyan, Sriram Jha and K.Rathnakaran got
first three positions.
