  notyetagm: <Wannabe> The bookie always wins in the end, baby. :-)
Apr-14-06  OhoBoho: Breaking news: Topalov vs Kramnik in September
Apr-14-06  OhoBoho: http://www.chessbase.com/
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: Last round pairings on top boards:

Kozul (8) - Izoria (7)
Belov (7) - Ivanchuk (7,5)
Inarkiev (7) - Nikolic (7)
Georgiev (7) - Gurevich (6,5)

Apr-14-06  Maroczy: Former European champion Macieja has played some tough draws vs. Jobava, Shanava and Gurevitch. He's having one of his best efforts in a long time.

  notyetagm: <Ivan23: Last round pairings on top boards:>

I thought this tournament was 13 rounds? This is only rounds 11.

Apr-15-06  Ivan23: <notyetagm> Only 11 rounds will be played. Last round today, tie-breakers in Sunday and closing ceremony and departures in Monday (hence Apr 4 - Apr 17).
Apr-15-06  Ivan23: Kozul-Izoria drawn after 5 minutes and 10 moves played. Ivanchuk needs a win with Black in an Exchange Slav against Belov to share 1st place with Kozul.
Apr-15-06  whatthefat: Well, I decided to give Georgiev one last chance to win me back my chessbucks. Unfortunately, I overlooked the fact that HE'S SOFT AS ANYTHING AND CAN ONLY LAST 9 MOVES AS WHITE!! Ahem... excuse me.. getting all worked up here...

Serenity now.

  keypusher: Belov appears to have no objection to a draw, but Ivanchuk seems to be trying to win.

<whatthefat> LOL. Glancing over Georgiev's games so far, I am sure he was very tired.

Apr-15-06  whatthefat: <keypusher>
Yeah, I know, it's actually a pretty impressive result for him. Just a shame he had to cost me about a grand of imaginary money along the way.
Apr-15-06  Ivan23: Belov-Ivanchuk draw.
It's official now, Kozul is the new champ.

  notyetagm: ICC claims Ivanchuk won to go to 8.5 and tie Kozul.
Apr-15-06  Ivan23: Official site says draw after 30 moves.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: The Belov-Ivanchuk position on the official site sure looks like a draw to me.

This is the first time I've followed the progress of a tournament like this via the internet. I guess short draws are very common in the penultimate round of a tournament. One game in the Women's section lasted all of five moves.

Apr-15-06  TheUnkraut: (Whatthefat) you really missunderstand georgiev: he might have played only 9 moves-but im sure he was giving his very best till the titanic fight was over

Apr-15-06  Ezzy: Congratulations to Grandmaster Kozul the new European champion!

What an improvement on last year when he scored 5.5/13 and lost 24 rating points in that one tournament.

Apr-16-06  WarmasterKron: According to ChessBase, Kozul's performance rating for the tournament was an impressive 2791.
Apr-16-06  stanleys: Another big success for a Croatian player - about a month ago GM Zelcic became European blitz champion and GM Palac took the third place. Congratulations!
Apr-17-06  Petrosian63: Will Ivanchuk gain any ELO points from the European Individual Championships?
Apr-17-06  AlexandraThess: What a sad championship the legendary Ulf Andersson had hard moments
Apr-18-06  Maroczy: Where is that elusive last round?
Apr-18-06  Maroczy: Thanks.
Apr-19-06  turkishgrandmaster: Sinan Tezok is my friend but he is an amuetor. He just went there for fun
