Jul-20-05  Knight13: Finally the Canadian Open is over! Now I can enjoy thoes games...
Jul-20-05  Knight13: Ivanchuk played a 2000 in this tournament. Cheap one for him! See Ivanchuk vs V Sladek, 2005 for the game he played against a 2000. He beat him pretty easily.

  cade: In the first round he played someone with a rating of less than 2000.

  IMlday: Weird event. 2700's, Indians and Canadian teenagers cleared out the prize fund.

  VishyFan: simply saying, the top talent :D
Aug-11-05  gauer: FYI Having played in my 1st Cdn Open, it was a decent tournament. In case anyone had been wondering, a modified rule for draw offers was that once one player had offered a draw, if it were to have been declined, then the player having offered the draw would be unable to offer the draw until the opponent offered the draw, and if it were declined, the process could continue (is it a popular variant to cut back on draw offers? - I'm not sure). I'm not sure if the rule had any affect on any gameplay.
Aug-11-05  Montreal1666: <gauer> This rule makes a lot of sense. Once you offer a draw you have to wait for your opponent to reach to the conclusion that he cannot find a win.
