Mumbai Mayor Cup 2010

Quick update on this event: The 3rd Mumbai Mayor Cup finished minutes ago. GM Dmitry Kokarev from Russia has the highest point with 9 out of 11 rounds. Six players followed behind with 8,5 points including names like Dreev etc. Then more than dozen of players  with 8 which is included a sole Indonesian IM Tirto. Tirto finished the event with 'only' three loses to all GM opponents, but he managed to get down the last GM, Deepan Chakkravarthy. The game is quite bizzare with Deepan taking black side of Sicilian started a provocative attack involving some sacrifice. At some point in fact Tirto in significant winning position. Here the game :
