Ikeda wins Japanese Championship

FM Junta Ikeda has won the 2013 Japanese Chess Championship. Having moved to Japan a month ago for University study, Ikeda took the opportunity to play in the 11 round event.
He scored 9.5/11 (+8=3-0) and finished a point ahead of top seed FM Shin'ya Kojima.
As it turns out Junta was not the only Canberra playing taking part, as Chris Kevork also played in the event. After 8 rounds he was on 50% but unfortunately I don't have the final crosstable to hand.
