  refutor: is there an easy way to search for a certain ECO code or sort by ECO code in a tournament like this?
Premium Chessgames Member Not really. We'll have a tournament pull-down on the homepage one day, but not yet.
Premium Chessgames Member
  lostemperor: As you see Mr.Tiviakov is here too. Didn't he play the Dutch championship recently? It is nice if you have two nationalities.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: What was the strongest Soviet Championship? I'd put my money on the 41st in 1973.Love to hear the opinions of other Kibitzers.
Sep-19-03  morphynoman2: Please, Im waiting for the marvellous game Yemelin-Dolmatov in the last round.
Premium Chessgames Member
  refutor: you mean this one? V Yemelin vs Dolmatov, 2003
Sep-21-03  morphynoman2: Thank you, refutor. I dont know why this game is not in the championship list.
Nov-15-03  guarch: Nov-15-03 guarch: It seems to me that Kasparov is going to lose the match vs. 3DX fritz. The second game was weak and too careful for a human champion!But you know, I really will love to see Garry destroying the silicon calculators!
May-05-05  izat: i will win
May-02-08  positionalgenius: Svidler simply flew the tournament,destroying the opposition here.
