The AICF-AAI Cup took place in New Delhi from December 21st (first round) to 30th (final round), 2012.

Round ten: Anton Korobov wins AICF-AAI Chess Cup

Grandmaster Anton Korobov of Ukraine (above left) won the AICF-AAI Chess Cup defeating top seed Radoslav Wojtaszek of Poland in the tenth and final round that concluded here in Delhi. Playing with black, Korobov went for the Bogo-Indian Defense and found himself in a difficult situation after the opening. Soon White had a dangerous initiative and it looked as though he would cruise through. However, Wojtaszek could not find the best manoeuvres and went astray in a time scramble. Korobov finished the game with a simple tactical stroke.

Final standings

The Ukrainian finished with an impressive 6.5 points out of a possible 10. The victory fetches Korobov the winner's purse of Rs. 400,000 (= €5,500 or US $7,300), along with twelve important rating points.
