GM Leonid Milov (GER) scored an unbeaten 7.5/9 to win 7th Bodensee Open 2023. IM Anwesh Upadhyaya and GM Ilmars Starostits (LAT) scored 7/9 each. They were placed second and third respectively according to tie-breaks. Anwesh drew against both Leonid and Ilmars. All three podium finishers remained undefeated. The top three prizes were €800, €600 and €500 each respectively. The nine-day rating tournament was organized by Schachklub Bregenz. This was Anwesh's first Classical rating tournament since July 2022. So an unbeaten second place finish and gaining 12.9 Elo rating points is certainly a great result.
