  wordfunph: first round results:

Shirov - Khairullin 0-1

Fridman - Krasenkow 1-0

Kovalenko - Mamedyarov 1-0

Ivanchuk - Morozevich 1/2

Feb-18-12  Penguincw: So, here are the standings (ABC order):

1.Fridman 1/1 (+1 =0 -0)
1.Khairullin 1/1 (+1 =0 -0)
1.Kovalenko 1/1 (+1 =0 -0)
4.Ivanchuk 0.5/1 (+0 =1 -0)
