|Jun-11-05|| ||superiorNOshow: I am suprised by Shirov's results. I expected at least above 6. Also looking forward to live chessgames coverage of Adams/Hydra match!!|
|Jun-11-05|| ||cade: Shirov hasn't been quite himself lately.|
|Jun-11-05|| ||fgh: How many points will Sokolov gain after this tournament?|
|Jun-11-05|| ||iron maiden: Volokitin was the biggest disappointment, losing his first four games and eventually finishing -3. If this tournament is counted in time for the July list, he may lose his #1 junior spot to Radjabov. Nakamura won't be too far behind either.|
|Jun-11-05|| ||stijn: according to the fide-site his next rating is going to be 2693, if they count this tournament he's going down big, 20 points or something|
|Jun-11-05|| ||aw1988: Bologan and Sokolov won this; Sokolov is suprising, but Bologan is showing real promise. Expect to hear more of him.|
|Jun-11-05|| ||MrSifter: <iron maiden> Volokitin is going to gain 13 points so far to his current massive rating of 2679. Even with this tournament he won't lose enough to lose his #1 spot.|
|Jun-11-05|| ||iron maiden: <MrSifter>, don't be so sure. This is going to cost him a bunch of points--maybe over 20. And Radja was right behind him as it is.|
|Jun-13-05|| ||VishyFan: <fgh> Sokolov will gain 16 ELO from this tournament|
<iron maiden>In July list, ratings wud be Voloktin 2693, Radjabov 2682 and Nakamura wud be way behind at 2660...
<stijn><MrSifter> Voloktin is going to lose 22 ELO from this tournament...., but........
I think this tournament will be considered for october rating list........

Perhaps to you.
Sokolov is for in the elite for years, he won this tournament in 2003 (with Bareev, Shirov, Movsesian, Radjabov, and Kasim) and was +2 last year. Actually he is rightfully considered a favorite to win in Sarajevo, which I believe is his previous hometown.
