|May-09-12|| ||Blunderdome: Should be an interesting tournament. Looking forward to Leko's games, especially against Caruana, Giri, and Hector (not quite a world-class player but an exciting attacker).|
|May-10-12|| ||waustad: Thanks! Here is the official site: http://www.sigeman-chess.com/en|
|May-10-12|| ||supy: Caruana beats Giri in young stars battle of Sigeman http://www.chessdom.com/sigeman-co-... now R2 they play Tikanen and Li Chao.|
|May-10-12|| ||waustad: Grandelius beat Berg in a nice KI.|
|May-11-12|| ||Maatalkko: Good to see Leko in his classic form again!|
|May-11-12|| ||DIO: Maatalkko, indeed! I was secretly hoping that Leko would return to the board with a renewed attitude - kinda how Kramnik is not Drawnik any more, but nope ...|
|May-12-12|| ||waustad: Rest day today.|
|May-12-12|| ||waustad: If you look at Leko's games here, there aren't any quick no content games. A dragon Yugoslav attack game that doesn't end up decisive often means that nobody blundered. Both sides are going for it.|
|May-13-12|| ||Karpova: Tikkanen lost his 4th game in a row, this time with White against Leko who is now at +1 like Grandelius and Chao (who beat Hector).|
|May-13-12|| ||waustad: Grandelius held the draw against Giri today and Leko had a nice win over Hector.|
|May-14-12|| ||Illogic: Tikkanen got on the board today with a win over Berg. Grandelius beat Hector. Rest were drawn|
|May-14-12|| ||waustad: Grandelius is tied for the lead with 2 rounds to go. They play in the penultimate round tomorrow an hour after the start of the WCC game (8 am EDT). The final round starts 2 hours earlier than all of the others.|
|May-15-12|| ||waustad: Caruana wins a time trouble nail-biter vs Grandelius today. Nils had seconds on the clock and crumbled.|
|May-15-12|| ||Illogic: Caruana wins a wild one over Grandelius and is now in the driver's seat. Credit to Grandelius to sacking everything but the kitchen sink!|
|May-15-12|| ||kurtrichards: Great play by Nils until he fell into the deep pit called time trouble. Good play Fabiano. Fuerza Italia!|
|May-16-12|| ||waustad: Today, Jonny hector is playing the Vienna Game.|
|May-16-12|| ||waustad: Berg is playing Bird's opening!|
|May-16-12|| ||kurtrichards: Congratulations Fabiano for winning the Sigeman & Co. 2012.|
May your winning ways continue!
|May-16-12|| ||Karpova: Round 7:
Grandelius - Tikkanen 1/2
Li - Leko 0-1
Hector - Caruana 0-1
Berg - Giri 0-1
|May-16-12|| ||Shams: Caruana's next tournament will start in ten minutes.|
|May-16-12|| ||waustad: Congrats to Grandelius for giving it his all and coming oh so close in a tournament where he was the lowest rated player. I should, however mention that all 4 Swedes were rated between 2556 and 2587, so it wasn't a huge difference. The foreigners were all rated much higher.|
|May-21-12|| ||HeMateMe: Leko won three games here. Shows he can break out of the drawish style that he has been linked to.|
|May-21-12|| ||Illogic: It doesn't matter, the usual suspects will still be chirping whenever he draws a few games and then go mysteriously silent when he wins some.|
