Kosteniuk 2011 Swiss Chess960 Champion

Hi everybody!
Today I am pleased to report that at the Biel Chess Festival I showed a good result in the 2011 Swiss Chess960 Championship, with a third place in the tournament and the best result by Swiss players.
I am posting some photos below and soon will post the full table of results, as soon as it is available.
As for my personal result in the tournament, I won against I. Lamoureux (2093), P. Lee (1876), GM Sebastien Maze (2578), FM Tom Weber (2324), and GM Christian Bauer (2637), drew against GM Boris Grachev (2680) and lost only to GM Tigran Gharamian (2670), total 5.5/7.
