    Aman is second. I looked at the tiebreaks for the first time after losing to Bareev in round 7 - the first tiebreak is head to head encounters. I think for future events, it would make sense to change that...in my opinion, head to head makes more sense in round robins, but in a swiss event other tiebreakers usually work better. Unfortunately, the schedule with two games on the last day does not allow time for playoff games.

    Is there a playoff for one FM title, or do all the players with 6 points get one?

    I wondered how many players have obtained fide titles from the Canadian Closed. In the modern era of Swiss events, there have been 44 players (19%) who have scored 6 and most already were titled. Trying to figure it out from David Cohen's research at www.canadianchess.info

    IM Titles from Canadian Closed
    (3 players got the IM title for 6 pts in 1999:
    David Ross 1999
    Michael Schleifer 1999
    Thanh Nha Duong 1999

    Arthur Calugar 2011
    Eric Lawson 2004
    Vicente Lee Jr. 2006 (6.5 points)
    Nikolay Noritsyn 2007
    Jonathan Tayar 2009
    Richard Wang 2012

    FM titles from Canadian Closed
    Louise Jiang 2009
    Nikita Gusev 2012
    Eric Lawson 2002
    Christian Stevens 2004

    (In 1999 it looks like top players with 4.5 points got FM titles
    Nigel Fullbrook 1999
    Hans Jung 1999
    Marat Khassanov 1999
    Stephen Glinert 1999
    Ioan Crisan 1999

    Others with 6/9 who haven't won the FM title (Lost playoff or non-zonal year? Minimum rating requirement?):
    Robert J. Gardner 2002
    Dale Haessel 2006
    David Herder 2002
    Robert Patterson 2002
    Jeff Reeve 2002
    Sergei Sokourinski 2002

    I won the FM title in 2009 as well as "Louise" :)

    Huge congrats to Mark Plotkin who managed the IM norm despite having to overcome his own creative openings and the pressure of hundreds of students watching at home :) Looking forward to seeing the last norm!

    Hello Stephen, if I remember correctly, in 2002 Pascal Charbonneau beat Kevin Spraggett to become Champion. Recently I was discussing that tournament. As I'll be visiting Victoria next month, I was talking about Lynn Stringer (who was the Chief Arbiter, in 2002). I miss that nice little lady.

    There were multiple people with 4.5+ who got CM: Zachary Dukic, Sergey Noritsyn, Rejean Tremblay, Max Rusonik, Ananda Saha, Hugues Masse, Hou Ji Yao, and William Li. Congratulations!

    Although the big guns dominated the top of the crosstable, the lower players could get personal victories in terms of upsets and rating gains.

    Zachery Dukic (defeating GM Yang) had the highest performance rating over his FIDE rating. And he had played in Italy and Philadelphia in the last year. But his performance rating was below his CFCs.

    Joshua Doknjas (defeating GM Bareev) had his performance rating higher than his CFCs, as were Tremblay and Saha.

    Réjean Tremblay score with FMs was +2=3-0, Tyler Tanaka scored even against FMs +1=3-1. Several of the players had their FIDE rating way below their CFC, and so we would expect them to be among those who gained the most FIDE rating points.

    Dukic, Zachary 2362 2167 (2376)

    Nope. Too tough opposition. Zachery Dukic, who defeated GM Kaiqui Yang, needed to draw his last round game with an IM. He will get lots of rating points.

    GM Hambleton and IM Noritsyn had the same points (6.5). Do they playoff for 2/3?
