Nov-06-08  smaragdus: First! :)
Nov-06-08  suenteus po 147: Georgiev has been around for a while, with lots of tournament showings in the '80s. Nice to see he can cause a ruckus in events.
Nov-07-08  JuliusCaesar: The top three places were taken by veterans.
Nov-07-08  beenthere240: Caro-Kann scores 2-0 for black.
Nov-07-08  square dance: <The top three places were taken by veterans.> is the tournament over? i know jobava won a pretty interesting rauzer game over gulko today.
Nov-07-08  square dance: here's the pgn. definitely worth giving a once over.
