Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-09-14  paavoh: A surprising first - lots of interesting games here. After round 5, the usual suspects populate the top of the ranking table.
Jun-09-14  NeoIndian: Lot of heavyweight names here. Events like these get overshadowed by supertournaments. Maybe the Cg crowd will discuss a few of these games after Norway is over.
Jun-11-14  paavoh: Jakovenko is taking a commanding lead here with +4 out of 7.
Jun-11-14  Bruce Graham: What about Fedoseev: 4.5 points from 5 games?
Jun-11-14  notyetagm: 67th Russian Championship Higher League (2014)

Big win today by Jakovenko with Black today over the leader Fedoseev.

Jun-12-14  paavoh: @Bruce Graham: Chessbomb has up-to-date game scores, CG table lacks several games (e.g. Fedoseev).

Looks like the leaders drew quickly in the 8th round, Khismatullin and Motylev with wins pulled quite close to qualifying (5 best proceed into Superfinals).

Jun-12-14  Bruce Graham: Thanks <paavoh>! B
Jun-13-14  paavoh: Hey Bruce, don't mention it. Happy to have helped.
Jun-13-14  paavoh: Lysyj, Zvjaginzev already qualify by 6.5/9, Jakovenko very close too. A bunch will finish at 6/9 - what is the tiebreaker, or is there a playoff?
Jun-13-14  SickedChess: <paavoh> Denis Khismatullin and Boris Grachev also classified for the Final Russian Champ.
Jun-13-14  visayanbraindoctor: 'The 9 round Swiss Open had a qualifying character for the Russian Superfinal 2014. GM Igor Lysyj, GM Vadim Zvjagintsev, GM Dmitry Jakovenko, GM Denis Khismatullin and GM Boris Grachev were the top five to earn spots in the prestigious Superfinal.'
