  HeMateMe: I guess its custom to drop in the obligatory 'first!" I hope its a well played tournament. I'm not too familiar with these players, but i'm sure the games are of high quality.
Oct-29-09  redwhitechess: Somehow this looks like not a complete games from the tournament. Zhou Weiqi vs Andriasin in round 9 can't be found.

Five players shared first :

1.GM Volkov, Sergey 7.0
2. GM Zhou, Weiqi 7.0
3. GM Rychagov, Andrey 7.0
4. GM Deviatkin, Andrei 7.0

little write up:

Jan-12-10  Rama: What was the time control in this tournament? In many games the play seems sort of haphazard.
