Sep-23-04  MoonlitKnight: There seems to be a typing error on the front page. Lausanne is in Switzerland, not Sweden!
Sep-23-04  acirce: Americans... ;-)

  cu8sfan: I see and hear this all the time...

Thank God Sweden is a neutral country, too. If Americans mistook Switzerland for some other countries I'd live in constant fear of being attacked...

Sep-23-04  MoonlitKnight: Well, it's not as bad as when people think Norway is the capitol of Sweden.
Sep-23-04  simsan: The Swedes and Swiss shouldn't feel too safe. Din't I just read in the newspaper that Saddam was hoping for asylum in Sweden?

If so, I guess Dubya wouldn't hesitate to drop some MOABs over Gamla stan :-)

Sep-23-04  poktirity: Hmpf Norway isn't worthy of being anyway near Swedens capital =)
Sep-23-04  Giancarlo: What happened to Carlsen? I was always under the impression he would win this.
Sep-23-04  acirce: <Giancarlo> How come? He was only rated 5th, which is where he ended up.
Sep-23-04  Giancarlo: <Acrice>
well, I thought he'd really put in a surprising preformance is what i really mean. I was hoping for a 3 and up finish from him. But your right, it isn't dissapointing at all, I just thought he'd do beter then 5th thats all.
Sep-23-04  Hidden Skillz: <acirce Americans...;-)> very true
Sep-24-04  ForeverYoung: Time for Alexandra to rebound in her next competition. Only half a point from six games.
Sep-24-04  acirce: <MoonlitKnight>, <simsan>, have you read the Chessbase piece on the event?

<Many eyes were on the youngest participants, particularly 13-year-old Magnus Carlsen of Sweden.>

Sep-24-04  percyblakeney: Isn't he Swiss? :)
Sep-27-04  percyblakeney: Lots of Lausanne photos from Kosteniuk's website:
Sep-27-04  simsan: <acirce> lol: Sweden really is getting a lot of inaccurate attention in connection with this event.

Right now I'm too focused on the Leko-Kramnik match in Brissago, Sweden to have time to write complaints to Chessbase :-)

Sep-27-04  acirce: Yeah, there are lots of things going on. I can't wait for next year's European Team Championship in Switzerland!
Sep-28-04  poktirity: I think Sweden should buy Magnus like Qatar bought that runner from Kenya.
Oct-11-04  nikolaas: what was the pairing tree?
Oct-11-04  percyblakeney: <nikolaas> QF: Mamedyarov-Papa, McShane-Lahno, Navara-Kosteniuk, Alekseev-Carlsen. SF: Mamedyarov-Alekseev, McShane-Navara. F: McShane-Mamedyarov. 5-8: Lahno-Kosteniuk, Carlsen-Papa. 5-6: Carlsen-Lahno. 7-8: Papa-Kosteniuk.
