|Feb-19-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Good. Another tournament to watch.|
|Feb-19-17|| ||Clemens Scheitz: Que sorpresa ver a Ivan Morovic en la lista de participantes. Mucha suerte compatriota.|
|Feb-22-17|| ||sonia91: I wonder why Aeroflot isn't in the homepage of chess-results.com, it's stronger than Graz Open and it used to be the strongest open tournament in the world.|
|Feb-22-17|| ||whiteshark: <sonia91> http://chess-results.com/tnr255922....|
|Feb-22-17|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <♔ ChessBookie Pay Day Announcement! ♔>|
Pay Day will be on the 25th of February: 1000 chessbucks will be added to every <active> Bookie player's account.
New/inactive players, make sure to place at least one bet before that date, if you want to be included in the payout!
|Feb-23-17|| ||Troller: Only 3 players with maximum after rd 2, that's how strong this open (!) tournament is. Matlakov has white against Smirin, and Bluebaum has white against highest rated with 1½ (and top seed), Yu Yangi.|
I can see from the homepage that the agreement with Dortmunder Schachtage is still running, so the winner of the top group gets an invite to a closed super tournament. Not that Dortmund would be embarrassed by any of the top 20 seeds from Aeroflot. 5 players are 2700+, 22 are 2650+ and 40 players are 2600+.
|Feb-23-17|| ||Dionysius1: Maybe more an indication of how level it is. The best are all around 2650 aren't they? Gibraltar was a lot stronger, for example.|
|Feb-23-17|| ||sonia91: <Troller: Only 3 players with maximum after rd 2> After just 3 rounds (!) nobody has a perfect score! I remember two years ago only Sasikiran had 3/3.|
|Feb-28-17|| ||Troller: This is so far a semi-disaster for Adhiban after his strong showing at Tata. His highest rated opponent in the first 7 rounds was 2573, yet Adhiban has lost 3 and won only 1 game. Rating loss 22,2 at the moment.|
After 7 rounds the top 8 players are Jobava and 7 Russians. But in these Swiss tournaments of course everything is decided in the very last rounds.
|Mar-01-17|| ||paavoh: Great performance by the young Fedoseev, congrats! Very solid, with some luck sprinkled in (Khismatullin game).|
|Mar-01-17|| ||sonia91: Congrats to Fedoseev! He qualified for Dortmund 2017.|
|Mar-02-17|| ||notyetagm: World Blitz Ch Karjakin did not do so hot in the Aeroflot Blitz tournament: http://www.chessarbiter.com/turniej...|
|Mar-02-17|| ||tamar: Were the blitz games recorded?|
|Mar-02-17|| ||sonia91: Anton Korobov won the blitz event with 15.5/18. Valentina Gunina tied for 6th with 12.5. Karjakin scored 11 and lost 92 blitz rating points: http://www.chessarbiter.com/turniej...|
<tamar> I don't think so.
|Mar-02-17|| ||tamar: thank you, sonia91. I couldn't find even pgns, although a handful of videos have appeared on youtube today, mostly of juniors, but a brief glimpse of Karjakin.|
|Mar-02-17|| ||tamar: Karjakin looks off-form in his two games against Papin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwk... and was perhaps lucky to draw the first one.|
|Mar-03-17|| ||whiteshark: <Fedoseev> wins Aeroflot|
22-year-old Russian GM <Vladimir Fedoseev> took clear first place at the prestigious Aeroflot Open, played from February 22nd to March 1st at the Cosmos Hotel in Moscow.
<Fedoseev> obtained the title thanks to a great performance with White, as he won all four games he played with this color. This important victory also got him a place at the traditional Dortmund supertournament in July.
