The Ukrainian GM Pavel Eljanov couldn't win over Russian Dmitry Andreikin in the last round of Aeroflot Open which was held in Hotel Cosmos, Moscow. In the case of victory Eljanov would take clear first place.

Eljanov, his compatriot Korobov and Polish Grandmaster Mateusz Bartel finished the tournament with the same result 6.5/9. It's not official but Bartel is supposed to take gold on a tie-break, because he played more games with Black than his Ukrainian opponents. The second (the opponents' rating) is Korobov, while Eljanov takes third place.
