<IM Joseph Sanchez led the race until the very last round when he succumbed to rushing Hamdouchi. Still, Sanchez will be happy with condolence prize - GM norm, the same feat achieved by Italian IM Sabino Brunello.>


<Joseph Sanchez earned his 3rd and final Grandmaster norm during the just concluded 23rd Cannes Chess Festival in France where he finished in joint third place and with performance rating of 2635. There are claims that Sanchez's Elo will be 2507 (though this is not fully confirmed yet) >
