Sep-13-12  Naniwazu: I've betted 1500 chessbucks on Cheparinov to win!

  wordfunph: goodluck mate <Nani>..
Sep-13-12  virginmind: for some reason neither playchess nor chessbomb relay this.
Sep-13-12  Naniwazu: <wordfunph: goodluck mate <Nani>..>

Thank you funph!

Sep-13-12  waustad: It is amazing that there has been only one decisive game in the first two rounds (Chepa just drew a minute ago) considering the play of the games. Today was all Sicilians, with none of the now stylish 3. Bb5 stuff, and some lines that look sharp to me. There are no quicky draws here.
Sep-13-12  rapidcitychess: Looking forward to seeing some of this stuff.

Provided it doesn't start before 9:30. C:

Sep-14-12  virginmind: good job by nisi, winning with black and taking the lead.
Sep-14-12  waustad: I was confused by the Nisi comment but realized it was before the round 4 debacle.
Sep-14-12  virginmind: right, oops, didn't see that coming.
Sep-15-12  Rata999: Ivan Cheparinov is playing really well for now,and if he win here he is going to have 5 tournament wins only in 2012. very impressive.
Sep-16-12  siamesedream: Nice win by Malakhov against Jobava:

Sep-16-12  parmetd: A white wash today.
Sep-16-12  Rata999: 3 aut of 3 today for white,really nice!
Sep-17-12  waustad: This is a strange tournament with rounds starting at different times:

I've used to final rounds starting early, but these are all over the place.

Sep-17-12  waustad: The one real surprize is Jobava at -3,who didn't play at the olympiad.
Sep-17-12  parmetd: Are they playing on cruise ship maybe?
I see a map with alot of different points claimed as part of tournament series...
Sep-17-12  waustad: I got the impression that it is a series of tournaments, but that is another way to interpret that map. There was a Czech rapids tournament where they went from city to city around Central Europe each day and played on the train. It sounded like fun, but not for these folks.
Sep-18-12  waustad: Oh, a couple of days they played 2 rounds. tomorrow is get away day so they'll play much earlier:
Sep-18-12  waustad: Cheparinov is up a pawn against Nisipeanu. Will it be enough?
Sep-18-12  waustad: I guess not, 3 draws today.
Sep-19-12  virginmind: with a final victory over malakhov, nisi will probably finish second here (equal in points with the russian but having won against him). not bad at all, ratings-wise.

now that i look again, malakhov too won against nisi, so i guess they're equal second.

Sep-19-12  allin: Bravo Nisi!!!...+15,4 elo
Sep-19-12  Rata999: Congrats GM Cheparinov nice tournament and congrats on 2705,5 !
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: A good tournament, with 50% decisive games. Congrats to all participants. A special congratulations to I.Cheparinov for a well deserved victory.
Sep-19-12  rapidcitychess: Congrats to Cheparinov! Nice games came out of this tournament.
