|Dec-23-16|| ||Sokrates: If I am right Wojtaszek rated # 18 is the highest ranking player, so the winner can hardly be regarded as the European champion. Regardless, there are some very strong GMs in this tournament.|
|Dec-24-16|| ||siggemannen: Nice to see Rjazantsev getting back to form after a few non-years|
|Aug-06-17|| ||Tabanus: Two wrong game results have been duly corrected. There are some missing games by the 30 best placed players, incl. Smolin - Matlakov 0-1 (rd. 4), Jovanovic - Ponomariov 0-1 (rd. 4), Potkin - Ovod 1-0 (rd. 3), Wege - Kovalenko 0-1 (rd. 3), two games by Motylev, etc.|
