By the skin of his teeth (surviving a mate in two!), Maxim Rodshtein held his black game against Stewart Haslinger to a draw in the final round of the Univé Open. This way the grandmaster from Israel maintained his half point lead to clinch the € 3000 first prize. In the Crown Group both games of the last round ended in draws.
