Apr-17-08  s4life: Neverov got 7.5/9 shouldn't he have won this thing?
Apr-17-08  unsound: Neverov scored 6.5/9. His game against Salem is marked as a win in this database--but a glance at the final position will tell you he lost: A R Salem vs V Neverov, 2008
May-05-08  rjsolcruz: I wonder how many GM scalps did GM Wesley got in this event?
