Feb-01-13  fref: First?
I'm rooting for Nepomniachtchi.
Feb-01-13  Everett: <fref: First?
I'm rooting for Nepomniachtchi.>

I'm looking for his name to be in the next spelling bee championship.

Feb-02-13  torreAC: first to say second...
Feb-02-13  docbenway: If no Andreikin then I say the fix is in.
Feb-02-13  Naniwazu: <fref> me too!

  PhilFeeley: There are over 1600 participants! I expect there are several divisions. The first 100 in the list are over 2400.

The top 10 so far:

1 Nepomniachtchi Ian 2703 GM RUS
2 Inarkiev, Ernesto 2688 GM RUS
3 Potkin Vladimir 2665 GM Rus
4 Khismatullin, Denis 2652 GM RUS
5 Mamedov, Rauf 2651 GM AZE
6 Iturrizaga, Eduardo 2650 GM VEN
7 Khairullin, Ildar 2650 GM RUS
8 Gupta, Abhijeet 2637 GM IDN
9 Nyzhnyk, Illya 2637 GM UKR
10 Turov, Maxim 2630 GM

It'll be good to see Nyzhnyk back in action.

  HeMateMe: Is today the dinner and traditional dancing, or are the first games today?
Feb-02-13  ketchuplover: Go Illya!!!!!!!!!!!
Feb-02-13  Refused: This tournament is the reason, why there won't be a classical section in the Aero Flot Open this year...

  PhilFeeley: Nothing on Chessbomb yet. This should have started by now, but the official site doesn't even list pairing yet, sending you to for that.

BTW, there's a Vadim Karpov listed. A descendent perhaps, or is Karpov just a common Russian name, like Petrosian in Armenia?

  PhilFeeley: Now I see that lists the starting time as 16:00, presumably local time. A couple of hours yet.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: I see that neither Inarkiev nor Potkin are listed as first round competitors. Perhaps they've taken a bye?

...and of course you have to go through the Russian version of the page. If you try it in English, you get a blank page. LOL

Feb-02-13  kellmano: <bubuli55> I guess you are not watching today. He is getting murdered by a 2354.

Haha no wonder I'm in the bottom of the pile. Did he lose already ?

Feb-02-13  Jason Frost: A bit surprised Andreikin isn't playing, since he seems to play (and mostly win) all major tournaments in Russia. Though the prize fund is a bit small.

  whiteshark: Without error there can be no brilliancy.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Next round has started. Games on the official site & Chessbomb.
Feb-03-13  waustad: Karina S-H is playing the Evans today. What fun!
Feb-03-13  Ezzy: Nyzhnyk Illya 2637 v Nyudleev Dolgan 2372

click for larger view

Black only has to play 38...Qxd4 (A mystery why he didn't play it) and has all the winning chances, BUT played the horrible 38...Qe3??

Monday/Tuesday puzzle - What's the finish for Nyzhnyk?

Feb-03-13  Ezzy: Round 2 Moscow Open

Another gift point for Illya

click for larger view

Nyzhnyk just played 32...Bxc1 which should all be equal after 33 Rxc1 - BUT White played the aweful 33 Qxc1?? leading to 33...f2+ 34 Kh1 (34 Kxg2 Qf3 mate) Qf3 and it's all over.

2 games, 2 horrible blunders by his opponent.
