|Dec-21-12|| ||chessgames.com: Official site http://www.indianchessfed.com/ has a video feed under "live streaming".|
|Dec-21-12|| ||Whitehat1963: Wonderful start.|
|Dec-21-12|| ||Jason Frost: Seems like every player taking part has been struggling a bit lately, though still obviously an impressive field for a first time event.|
|Dec-22-12|| ||shivasuri4: <Jason Frost>, Fabiano Caruana won this event in 2011, so it's not a first time event.|
|Dec-22-12|| ||shivasuri4: Following the lead of many other tournaments, this one too bars players from offering draws directly. http://www.chessdom.com/aicf-aai-ch...|
|Dec-22-12|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Always nice to see a super tournament being held in India. Keep it up!|
|Dec-22-12|| ||Jason Frost: <shivasuri4> Woops, thanks for the info. Looks like a strong tournament last year as well, especially going by current ratings. Glad they're continuing with the tradition.|
|Dec-26-12|| ||Blunderdome: Negi was rated 2600 for the first time in Jan 2009. Not a ton of ratings progress from age 15 to 19. It would be cool to see him climb the charts a bit, someone will need to step up for Anand when he retires.|
|Dec-27-12|| ||Kikoman: And finally Abhijeet Gupta got his first win in the tournament beating the leading Anton Korobov.|
|Dec-29-12|| ||jamesmaskell: Enjoyable tournament so far, some really good fights and decent streaming of the games too, always a bonus.|
|Dec-29-12|| ||Refused: Ok, Korobov heading with the lead into the final round.|
Gonna be interesting.
And Gupta and Negi play for the <golden pineapple> in their last round encounter. Practically the only board with no player being able to win the tournament.
|Dec-30-12|| ||Refused: Nice display by Korobov.
6.5/10 is a great score. Finishing first a full point ahead of Alekseev.
|Dec-30-12|| ||Kikoman: Congratulations GM Anton Korobov. :D|
