GM Wesley So @ 2013 CICC, Calgary, Canada

GM Wesley So was a toast at the 6th Calgary International Chess Classic (CICC) after winning two chess championships on the same day on 19 May 2013.   Wesley So secured the 9-round Swiss “Standard” chess championship with one more round to go after winning the penultimate round (R8)  against FM Jason Cao who resigned on the 44th of the Classical Nimzo Indian and upped his score to 7.0/8, a 2-point lead to a bunch of four players who all scored 5.0/8 and tied at 2nd place.

With just a few hours of rest, Wesley So returned to the tournament’s venue and competed next in Calgary’s  9-round Swiss “Blitz” Championship and captured the championship as the sole winner with a perfect score of 9.0/9.
