Copenhagen, Denmark: Indian chess player Parimarjan Negi continued his brilliant form and clinched the Politiken Cup 2013 after emerging with a fine score of nine out of a maximum possible 10 points, here on Sunday.

Negi, interestingly, won the same tournament in 2009, but this time around he finished a full point clear of the field, which included top seed Ivan Cheparinov, who has also been a second for former World champion Veselin Topalov.

Negi, who had won two titles in US recently, scored eight wins and two draws in the Open tournament, which featured about 600 players from all over.
