The newly wed GM Judit Polgár wrapped up the tournament neatly to give herself a memorable present and another pinnacle in her career. Two ex World Champions Anatoly Karpov & Alexander Khalifman trailed by half points.
Karpov, at the twilight of his chess career, played without flair. He scored most of of his points from the tailenders (3.5 out of possible 4). He was still unbeatable but lack of wins cost him the championship trophy.
The event produced a strange game when GM Ruben Gunawan agreed to draw in much better position against GM Utut Adianto.
The Japfa Classic is the highest rated tournament in Indonesia to date.
