Sep-23-13  Kikoman: First!
Sep-24-13  dx9293: Irina Krush has 3/5 (1 FM, 4 GMs). 2638 performance so far...
Sep-30-13  PhilFeeley: Is this Smirnov the one who teaches also?
Sep-30-13  dx9293: <PhilFeeley> No, that is GM <Igor> Smirnov, who seems to have retired from active play.
Oct-01-13  yesnomaybeidontknow: Did Pavel Smirnov actually win this? His 3rd game listed is in fact merely a duplicate of his 2nd, so there is a game floating in the ether somewhere. Baku Open (2013)/Pavel Smirnov

  Troller: TWIC lists Smirnov as taking clear first with 7/9. Bit of a mess in the games here.
Oct-01-13  siggemannen: nice to see Smirnov winning here, he's one of the coolest "unknown" Russian players
