|Apr-14-06|| ||notyetagm: <Wannabe> The bookie always wins in the end, baby. :-)|
|Apr-14-06|| ||OhoBoho: Breaking news: Topalov vs Kramnik in September
|Apr-14-06|| ||OhoBoho: http://www.chessbase.com/|
|Apr-14-06|| ||Ivan23: Last round pairings on top boards:
Kozul (8) - Izoria (7)
Belov (7) - Ivanchuk (7,5)
Inarkiev (7) - Nikolic (7)
Georgiev (7) - Gurevich (6,5)
|Apr-14-06|| ||Maroczy: Former European champion Macieja has played some tough draws vs. Jobava, Shanava and Gurevitch. He's having one of his best efforts in a long time.|
|Apr-14-06|| ||notyetagm: <Ivan23: Last round pairings on top boards:>|
I thought this tournament was 13 rounds? This is only rounds 11.
|Apr-15-06|| ||Ivan23: <notyetagm> Only 11 rounds will be played. Last round today, tie-breakers in Sunday and closing ceremony and departures in Monday (hence Apr 4 - Apr 17).|
|Apr-15-06|| ||Ivan23: Kozul-Izoria drawn after 5 minutes and 10 moves played. Ivanchuk needs a win with Black in an Exchange Slav against Belov to share 1st place with Kozul.|
|Apr-15-06|| ||whatthefat: Well, I decided to give Georgiev one last chance to win me back my chessbucks. Unfortunately, I overlooked the fact that HE'S SOFT AS ANYTHING AND CAN ONLY LAST 9 MOVES AS WHITE!! Ahem... excuse me.. getting all worked up here...|
|Apr-15-06|| ||keypusher: Belov appears to have no objection to a draw, but Ivanchuk seems to be trying to win.|
<whatthefat> LOL. Glancing over Georgiev's games so far, I am sure he was very tired.
|Apr-15-06|| ||whatthefat: <keypusher>
Yeah, I know, it's actually a pretty impressive result for him. Just a shame he had to cost me about a grand of imaginary money along the way.
|Apr-15-06|| ||Ivan23: Belov-Ivanchuk draw.
It's official now, Kozul is the new champ.
|Apr-15-06|| ||notyetagm: ICC claims Ivanchuk won to go to 8.5 and tie Kozul.|
|Apr-15-06|| ||Ivan23: Official site says draw after 30 moves.|
|Apr-15-06|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: The Belov-Ivanchuk position on the official site sure looks like a draw to me.|
This is the first time I've followed the progress of a tournament like this via the internet. I guess short draws are very common in the penultimate round of a tournament. One game in the Women's section lasted all of five moves.
|Apr-15-06|| ||TheUnkraut: (Whatthefat) you really missunderstand georgiev: he might have played only 9 moves-but im sure he was giving his very best till the titanic fight was over|
|Apr-15-06|| ||BIDMONFA: 7th European Individual Championship (2006)|
Champion - ZDENKO KOZUL
Sub-Champion - VASSILY IVANCHUK
|Apr-15-06|| ||Ezzy: Congratulations to Grandmaster Kozul the new European champion!|
What an improvement on last year when he scored 5.5/13 and lost 24 rating points in that one tournament.
|Apr-16-06|| ||WarmasterKron: According to ChessBase, Kozul's performance rating for the tournament was an impressive 2791.|
|Apr-16-06|| ||stanleys: Another big success for a Croatian player - about a month ago GM Zelcic became European blitz champion and GM Palac took the third place.
|Apr-17-06|| ||Petrosian63: Will Ivanchuk gain any ELO points from the European Individual Championships?|
|Apr-17-06|| ||AlexandraThess: What a sad championship the legendary Ulf Andersson had hard moments|
|Apr-18-06|| ||Maroczy: Where is that elusive last round?|
|Apr-18-06|| ||Maroczy: Thanks.|
|Apr-19-06|| ||turkishgrandmaster: Sinan Tezok is my friend but he is an amuetor. He just went there for fun|
