  whiteshark: The <18th Karpov International Chess Tournament> is taking place in the small Siberian town of Poikovsky, Russia from 18-27 April. The event is a 10-player single round-robin, with Anton Korobov aiming for a 3rd title in a row. [2639-2727 ELO]

The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes until the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1.

Apr-22-17  Mr. V: They decided to not have so many draws this year.
Apr-23-17  paavoh: Got to feel sorry for Bologan. Quite a nosedive here, but at least he makes a commendable effort in his games.
Apr-25-17  paavoh: And what's with Jakovenko? He is almost unrecognizable in his current form, usually so solid and hard to beat.
Apr-26-17  sonia91: Ouch, Bologan (3-time winner) is last on -6...
Apr-27-17  paavoh: Some very hard-fought, risk-taking games in this tournament, such as Korobov refusing to give in against Najer. They are worth a look or two.
