  HeMateMe: Why have a page up, if there are no games?
Feb-18-12  ooda: I think they'll just show the final rounds on the 18th and 19th <HeHateMe>. Due to start 9:30am ET which is 30 mins from now if I'm correct.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Make that 17 minutes.
Feb-18-12  ooda: It looks like chessbomb will have the games.

Feb-18-12  ooda: Wow, Mamedyarov loses in 15 moves to Khairullin in round 3!
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: <ooda> 2012 maybe the Year of KhairulLIN!
Feb-18-12  bronkenstein: Mamed missed one tricky intermediate and that was it.

PS he actually made 14 moves, and was lost in 13th.

Premium Chessgames Member

Well we must be due for a new top SGM who's name starts with K right?

Feb-18-12  brankat: <Penguincw> <And lastly, just so that I don't forget <brankat>, it's brankat vs. NN, 1-0 in Round I.>

Much appreciated! :-)

Feb-18-12  waustad: Some notice of the ladies in Tbilisi would be nice. A rapids tournament with many of the top female players with only one draw in 2 rounds is rather fun. 15m + 6s is rather quick, but it is fun watching Pia and Maia beat up on the unguns (so far).
Feb-19-12  waustad: Congrats to Moro.
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: Alexander Morozevich --- 2012 Petrov Memorial Rapid Tournament Champion, congrats!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Other than a small slip in Round 2, Morozevich was crushing from there on. Congratz!

No problem. Hehe. ;)

Feb-19-12  Shams: A lot of miniatures in this tournament. Toys, even.

  Check It Out: There are some serious train wrecks here - I love to see these guys play when their rating is not on the line.
Mar-02-12  Atking: It seems to me there is a problem, it was Petroff Memorial and no one played his defense!
