  Octavia: where are the women?
Mar-23-17  stst: Where's Woltjacek(?) - or that he's not Polish. Recall Rubinstein... Artist of the Chess Board...

<where are the women?> Got a bye? Or later be challenged by the strongest men from this tourney!?

CB rd 1 report (in German)

Mar-23-17  Mr. V: Radek should be here too, but maybe he's moved on.
Mar-24-17  dm1991:

<Radek Wojtaszek is second seed behind Shakhriyar Mamedyarov in the Sharjah Masters, a new open tournament in the United Arab Emirates that has a very impressive field.>

<Dariusz Swiercz, meanwhile, is studying at Saint Louis University in the USA, in a chess program involving a partnership between the university and the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis (supported, of course, by Rex Sinquefield). Swiercz just finished in joint second place in the Winter Chess Challenge and will play in the "Final Four" in New York this weekend, where the team will come up against their local rivals Webster University as well as two teams from Texas.>

<18-year-old Jan-Krzystof Duda, like Mariola Wozniak, is preparing for his matura, or school-leaving exam, though he did manage to win two games in the Bundesliga at the weekend, the second against none other than Wojtaszek!>

This matura stuff you undergo, when finishing high school (if my understanding of USA's educational system is right). Also, i heard some rumours that Radek is struggling with money and i guess there's more for a top 10 in Sharjah than roughly 5000$ winning the Polish Champs.

  PhilFeeley: Good number of wins here and low draws, except for Socko.
Apr-11-17  paavoh: Nobody was winless nor without losses, that is unusual.
Apr-11-17  stst: <Nobody was winless nor without losses, that is unusual.>

That's usual business!!

As US searches for her next Fish, Poles want their Ruby back!!

Akiba Rubinstein!! - Artist of the Chess Board.... bring him back for a Polish comeback!!
