Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi lifts Denmark's Politiken Cup



Parimarjan Negi, the 20-year-old youngest international Grandmaster in chess,  won Politiken Cup 2013 after emerging with a fine score of nine out of a maximum possible 10 points, in Copenhagen, Denmark
The youngest international Grandmaster in chess won the same tournament in 2009, but this time around he finished a full point clear of the field, which included top seed Ivan Cheparinov, who has also been a second for former World champion Veselin Topalov. 

This was Negi’s second title in the last three outings. Last month in the US, Parimarjan won the DC International Open and tied for the top place in the World Open.
