  Sokrates: Never heard of Maksim Vavulin before. +10 -1 =0 is a Fischer-like result - very impressive in this lot of strong competitors. I assume we shall learn more about this young genius in future.
Dec-22-17  WorstPlayerEver: <Sokrates>

I guess he's studying something, otherwise I can't explain why he plays so little.

  Sokrates: A good guess, <WorstPlayerEver>, and I hope he studies "something" and only plays chess occasionally. But he sure plays some very entertaining chess - the games are a joy to play through.
Dec-22-17  fisayo123: He's a promising Russian talent. I don't know if he has his 3 GM norms now but he's been known to be one of the highest rated IM's in the world.

Duda was leading the way all through but Vavulin crushed him in the last round.
