I won the Nakhchivan Open 2022 internatonal chess tournament. The competition took place between 8-14 May, in Nakhchivan, Azerbaijan, and was dedicated to the 99th anniversary of the national leader Heydar Aliyev.

I was 5th in the starting list, immediately after 4 Grandmasters. I scored 8.5 points out of 9 games and increased my ELO by 20, getting back to the 2400 club. Many thanks to Nakhchivan Chess Federation for organizing the event at the highest level.
