Dominguez wins Dortmund despite late Nepo surge

Leinier Dominguez has set another milestone on his return from a 2.5 year break from classical chess by winning the 47th edition of the Dortmund Sparkassen Chess Meeting and entering the world Top 10. His unbeaten +2 left him half a point ahead of the other 2700 players in the field, with Ian Nepomniachtchi winning his last two games to finish above Radek Wojtaszek, Richard Rapport and Teimour Radjabov on the tiebreak of most wins.
