With nearly 80 of 172 participants, India provided by far the largest contingent at the 22nd Dubai Open, which finished on Sunday, 4 September.

By the end of the tournament, seven players in the top ten were from India. Only Aleksandr Predke (2nd) from Russia, playing under the FIDE flag, Seyed Kian Poormosavi from Iran (8th) and Alexandar Indjic (9th) from Serbia managed the feat of breaking into the Indian phalanx.

The winner was Aravindh Chithambaram, who was the only player to score 7.5/9. Five players followed with 7.0/9 each, and of this group Predke and Praggnanandhaa had the best tiebreak.

Arjun Erigaisi, the player with the best live-elo finished with 6.5/9, which gained him some rating points and helped him to advance two places in the live-ranking list.

In round 7 Aravindh defeated former tournament leader Rinat Jumabayev from Kazakhstan, and in round 8 Aravindh won against Arjun Erigaisi. A draw against Praggnanandhaa in round 9 was then enough for Aravindh to win the tournament.
