Aug-10-10  rapidcitychess: 13 year old Alex Bortnik played in the Artic chess challenge, in Tromso Norway. He went to the tourney by a qualifier hosted by ICC, going by "BlackHorse96" Coming in 4th after losing to the GM going by "Indian-Elephant" Who lost to another Gm, but declined due to other tourneys until it finally came to young Alex.

Any one bother posting some games from the event? And yes I made that report on my own.
