Smerdon wins 2009 ANU Open

IM (soon to be GM) David Smerdon has won the ANU Open for the second year in a row, with an undefeated 6/7. He took outright first with a final round win over tournament surprise packet Zachary Searle, while his closest challenger, Junra Ikeda, was held to a draw by Max Illingworth.
Smerdon conceded draws to second seed IM Andras Toth, and Ikeda, while Ikeda drew with Toth as well. Ikeda's 4 wins and 3 draws was enough to secure outright second.
Tied for third place were Max Illingworth, Zachary Searle, Endre Ambrus (a final round winner over IM Toth) and Yi Yuan. Searle only lost to the winner Smerdon in the final round, and second place getter Ikeda, in the first round!
A full crosstable for this event is in the comments section to this post.

I was under the impression Smerdon was already just recently made GM.

Shaun Press said...

He has, but the FIDE Presidential Board have to 'stamp the papers' for it to become official.
