There's a women's section as well, we'll be getting those games shortly.

Aug-21-12  paavoh: Ooh, memories from the 70s: Hecht, Balashov,...

  HeMateMe: Is this age 60 and above?
Aug-21-12  waustad: Thanks CG. If the rules are the same as in the senior WC, it is 60 for men and 50 for women.
Aug-21-12  Strongest Force: Whatever happened to that German GM named Huebner (I think)? He was elite back in the day. He was a candidate but became an egg-headed PHD.
Aug-22-12  uscfratingmybyear: No Korchnoi?
Aug-22-12  waustad: Huebner has played in the Snowdrops and Old-hands (2011) tournament recently.

Also, since Tatyana Fomina is playing in the women's section, women in their 50s are eligible.

Aug-22-12  waustad: Since Korchnoi is in a wheel chair now, he may not be travelling as much.
Aug-23-12  Troller: Hübner is a character all right, but I don't think he's ever played these senior championships. Karpov could also play now, I guess.

But I seem to recall that new distinctions are going to be made, so there will be 2 different senior age groups in the future?

Also, unfortunately Murey is not playing.

  chessgames.com: We've learned that Pushkov, Kupreichik, and Mochalov all finished on 7/9. It's unclear if they employ a tiebreak system. The official site still hasn't made the round 9 games available, sorry.

  cro777: Nikolai Pushkov won the European Senior Chess Champion title in the last round.

Valentin Bogdanov was a leader before the last round. Half a point behind were eight other players, including Pushkov. Bogdanov lost to Mochalov and Pushkov has defeated Mishuchkov, thus winning the tournament.

The break system

According to tournament regulations, the order of players that finish with the same number of points is determined by application of the following tie-breaking procedures :

(a) Performance Rating
(b) Buchholz cut-1
(c) Buchholz
(d) Number of wins.

Notice Black's move 30 simply "--"? We have to delete the game from our database as we cannot abide illegal chess moves. Perhaps a move would make sense there and the scoresheet was illegible.

Sep-03-12  Shams: <cg.com> Black's 30th must be either ...Qd7 or ...Qe6, with the former making more sense.

  FSR: I hate tiebreaks. They should just declare co-champions.
