Untitled wins strong Spanish Swiss

Untitled Bulgarian Borislav Ivanov won a strong Swiss tournament in Spain a full point ahead of his nearest rivals. There were several strong grandmasters playing whom he beat , only drawing with GM Alexei Barsov.

If his name rings a bell, then let me jog your memory a little. Lilov did a very conclusive analysis here and the original Chessbase report is here.

The dates of the tournament (16th-17th March) suggests that this is not a standard time control but rather a rapid tournament. Perhaps Ivanov is stronger than everyone assumes.

Here is the chess-results
