Gledura Benjamin on top again at First Saturday Budapest GM Tournament
It has been the second time this year IM Gledura Benjamin (HUN) won the First Saturday GM tournament. His victory in March resulted in his first GM norm but one point was missing this time. He arrived to this tournament in top form coming back unbeaten from the World Youth (U16) Chess Olympiad (Aug 2015 MGL) as the best scorer on the first board (8 points of 10 games).
Braeuer Franz (GER) also showed outstanding play but losing in the last round deprived him of both the GM norm and the first place. It was his fourth IM norm though.
