|Jul-06-06|| ||jperr75108: The time controls were different the usual time control was 40/120 G/60 but the 3 day and 4 day had shorter time controls at the beginning of the tournament. I played two games of G/75. That was the four day. I think the three day had 3 or 4 games at G/60.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||s4life: Thanks for the info ;)|
|Jul-07-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Hey didn't someone in our chessgames.com community participate in this tournament?|

|Jul-07-06|| ||geraldo8187: I did as well, but in the U12 section|
|Jul-07-06|| ||geraldo8187: <jperr75108> if i'm not mistaken, all three days had five games at g/45 the first day|

This was a fun tournament that I recommend everyone play in.
|Jul-07-06|| ||WannaBe: <southpawjinx> nice exchange to win a pawn on moves 8/9, trading a knight for a rook is always good.|
And then your opponent allowed you to grab all the Q-side pawns! But, you already have 2R + B vs. his R + N + B.
Good game!!! =)
(By the way, how come you went from U14 HB Global to U12??)
|Jul-07-06|| ||WannaBe: <southpawjinx> Nevermind, I did not know that HB did not have a U12 section. Just looked it up. =)|
|Jul-07-06|| ||s4life: Was there a women's section?|
|Jul-07-06|| ||WannaBe: <s4life> No, everyone plays together.|
|Jul-07-06|| ||jperr75108: Heres a game I played in the U1800 in the second round. Got a little lucky. It was a good tournament, although I messed up a few good positions. (Ill save myself embarassment and post one of my better more interesting ones)|

|Jul-08-06|| ||Atking: I note that the 2 best players of the world of Shogi (Mr Habu and Mr Moriuchi) were playing the World Open ! I think it is the first time that these champions plaid the same open. They plaid quite well indeed.|
|Jul-08-06|| ||Dionyseus: <Atking> Indeed. Mr. Habu finished 38th, only a point behind the winner. Mr. Moriuchi finished 88, two points behind the winner.|
|Jul-08-06|| ||Knight13: This guy's killing: http://www.uschess.org/msa/MbrDtlTn.... Very likely he's gonna be number 1 on top list!|
|Jul-09-06|| ||chess champion 8: Did Topalov or Magnus Carlsen play in this tournament?|
|Jul-10-06|| ||southpawjinx: <chess champion 8> Neither of them played in this tournament.|
|Jul-10-06|| ||jperr75108: Habu also made an IM norm.|
|Jul-15-06|| ||rustamrocks: Great performance by Kamsky. After M-Tel and Turin Olympiad, he continues to amaze the chess world.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||rjsolcruz: IM Sevillano has bested at least 15 GMs in this big event. I hope he can be with the RP Team in the next Olympiad.|
|Mar-19-07|| ||geraldo8187: is anybody from the chessgames community planning to attend the 35th world open in july? i will be playing in the U1600 section.|
|Mar-21-07|| ||geraldo8187: actually, depending on how many tournaments i play in before july, i could very well be in the U1400 section, however doubtful, or quite possibly the U1800 section.|
|Jun-22-07|| ||Bob726: <Geraldo8187> Hey, i'll be there in the U1600 section. I'll see you there if you go to the U1600 section.|
|Jun-22-07|| ||AVA: ill be in U2000 or U2200 section|
