Aug-14-11  Don Cossacks: Girish got crushed three in a row by Hovhannisyan,Swiercz and Rasulov.
Aug-14-11  wordfunph: <Don Cossacks> just like Rombaldoni, another case of long castling :(

Aug-14-11  notyetagm:

<Goganov vs Girish>

Amazing how White wins this game simply by <FIXING> the Black b7-,a6-pawns on light squares and the plays ♗d7-♗c8xb7xa6.

Aug-14-11  kia0708: Swierszcz is going up !
Now, imagine the comentators trying to pronounce his name :-)))
Aug-14-11  polarmis: It would be a start if it was even written correctly...


Just testing :)

Aug-15-11  notyetagm: Top 2 Boards for Round 13:

Aug-15-11  polarmis: All down to the tiebreakers now... Does Swiercz win the event overall after finally winning his game today? Hovhannisyan scraped a draw in a lost position to finish on equal points.
Aug-15-11  siamesedream: Congratulations to GM Dariusz ¬¶wiercz of Poland!

Aug-15-11  wordfunph: GM Dariusz Swiercz is the 2011 World Junior Champion!


Aug-15-11  wordfunph: <siamese> you beat me by a second :)
Aug-15-11  polarmis: Great! It was an amazing end to the tournament with 5 wins out of 6, and he was the only one with chances in the individual game against Hovhannisyan.

The funny thing is I got the impression he was playing in Wojtaszek-like positional style, which must be good news for the future! (we already know he's good tactically)

Aug-15-11  kia0708: photo of this little boy Swierszcz

Aug-15-11  waustad: Who would have picked Goganov to be the top scoring Russian?
Aug-15-11  polarmis: <kia0708>, Swierszcz is a little older now! Final report:

Aug-15-11  notyetagm: <waustad: Who would have picked Goganov to be the top scoring Russian?>

This tournament was a *disaster* for Sjugirov.

Aug-15-11  notyetagm: And Matlakov.

Hard to believe but they were the top 2(!) seeds when the tournament began.

Aug-15-11  jusmail: Can somebody point out the great games to be studied in this championship?
Aug-16-11  wordfunph: Swiercz Dariusz and Cori T Deysi are World Junior Champions..

Aug-16-11  kia0708: Cori Deysi looks the most atractive of all the young ladies :-)
Aug-16-11  dramas79: Very curious! No chinese players in the events. Was there a Boycott?

  HeMateMe: The new aircraft carrier ran out of fuel.
Aug-17-11  kia0708: and what about the Russians ?
Aug-18-11  kia0708: which of the games was the most interesting ?
