2018.04.25-05.01. Round Robin 11 rounds. 12 players. g/90/30. Rating average 2483. Category X. IM norm: Yoseph Theolifus Taher.

After missing out in 2 years (2016-7) the Japfa GMs tournament was back in 2018. The rating average was 2483 which was a significant upgrade from the past tournaments in 2014 and 2015. It was boosted by 6 GMs from 6 countries which constituted half of participants.

The first seed GM Anton Demchenko had every right to feel bad about himself. The champion trophy slipped through his fingers when he looked almost destined to grab it. The Russian GM led the tournament most of the time. He sailed smoothly until round 8 finished. He collected 6.5 VP from 5 wins, 3 draws, and zero losses. He was a full point ahead of his closest rival the third seed GM Timur Gareev from USA. The second seed GM Mǎ Qún of China was in the third with half a point back from Gareev. Realistically those players were the only ones who still had a chance to win the tournament with 3 more rounds left.

Demchenko paired against Mǎ Qún in round 9. After a wholesale exchange they entered an equal bishop ending but Mǎ Qún managed to win. Gareev produced a miniature gane against IM Sean Winshand Cuhendi to co-lead the tournament with Demchenko. Demchenko suffered another loss in the following round. It was inflicted by the host player GM Susanto Megaranto. This was Susanto’s only win during the tournament. At this point Demchenko was thrown down to the third after Gareev and Mǎ Qún. The top three standings didn’t change until the tournament ended.

Indonesia, which fielded 6 players, played an outsider role. The best among the host players was IM Novendra Priasmoro at fourth. As a consolation FM Yoseph Theolifus Taher registered his second IM norm.
