Alexander Grischuk Win Linares 2009 !

This year edition of the Super Elite Tournament - Linares is won by Russian Super GM -Alexander Grischuk . "Sasha" Grischuk (right) tied with another super GM - Vasilly Ivanchuk. Both finished with 8 points each.

Grischuk victory was quite surprising considering that this annual super elite GM features players like the World Champ - Vishy Anand, Levon Aronian, Magnus Carlsen and others. If i'm not mistaken this is his first major victory in super GM tournament although he has compete in several super gm tournament since 90's.
He is also a strong poker player and play in serious poker tournament before.
