Timman wins Sigeman 2006

5/9/2006 – We are always delighted when a very young player wins a tournament. For some reason this is also the case when the oldest player is victorious. That was the case in Malmö, Sweden, when Dutch chess legend Jan Timman, 54 years young, finished a full point ahead of the field (performance: 2762). Games and pictures.
