  HeMateMe: I guess its custom to drop in the obligatory 'first!" I hope its a well played tournament. I'm not too familiar with these players, but i'm sure the games are of high quality.

1.GM Volkov, Sergey 7.0
2. GM Zhou, Weiqi 7.0
3. GM Rychagov, Andrey 7.0
4. GM Deviatkin, Andrei 7.0
5. GM Melkumyan, Hrant 7.0

little write up:

Jan-12-10  Rama: What was the time control in this tournament? In many games the play seems sort of haphazard.
