Feb-01-15  Sokrates: This may be Moscow OPEN, but aren't they all Russians?
Feb-01-15  paavoh: @Sokrates: Apart from Vallejo Pons (ESP) yes - given the tense situation between RUS and UKR, and other tournaments in better climate like Gibraltar, I'm not very surprised by the low non-Russian participation. Competition in RUS is also tough, so one must be in great shape to recover travel, accommodation costs and maintain/gain rating points.
Feb-01-15  docbenway: What?! No Andreikin.
Feb-02-15  paavoh: Fedoseev is an interesting young talent, he has played well in EUR and World Junior Championships., and now on top at 3/3.
Feb-02-15  paavoh: Fedoseev's magnificent attack last year:
V Fedoseev vs K Grigoryan, 2014
Feb-02-15  PhilFeeley: Is this a knockout event, similar to the tennis pairings?
Feb-03-15  paavoh: Sorry for being too hasty, in addition to Vallejo Pons, there are players from GER, TUR, CHN, BRA at least.

  HeMateMe: Putin has such little regard for his fellow countrymen. Look at what the western sacntions have done to the Ruble:

"Now in its eleventh edition year, the Moscow Open AKA the International RSSU Chess Cup is held at the Russian State Social University in Moscow and consists of no fewer than eight tournaments with a combined prize fund of around 4,000,000 rubles. Unfortunately, just six months ago that would have meant some US$120 thousand, but <with the collapse of the Russian currency that now equates to $58,500.">

  Penguincw: For the 2nd straight meeting, Inarkiev beats Korobov with the black pieces to remain perfect. Key games for tomorrow:

Inarkiev (5) - Mamedov (4.5)
Nepomniactchi (4.5) - Xiu Deshun (4.5)
Grachev (4.5) - Vallejo (4)

Feb-06-15  Boomie: ->

The leader board can be found here -

Notice that Vladislav Artemiev continues his fine play of late. Soon we will be seeing him in premier events.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: <paavoh> Korobov is Ukranian, right?

Anyway, always interesting to follow young Vladislav, with all the hype surrounding Wei Yi it is easy to forget this remarkable talent. He has been a tad lucky in some of his games, but I seem to remember a young Carlsen also being very "lucky" some years back.

All in all a very strong open. Igor Lysyj, the new 2700-member, is "respectably" winning with White and drawing with Black - only he has yet to play someone rated 2500+...

Feb-06-15  policarpo: Where's Fier results.

  Penguincw: Entering Round 7, Nepo and Inarkiev were tied for the lead, but Inarkiev won their meeting to pull ahead.

Key Round 8 (penultimate round) matchups:

Petrosian (6) - Inarkiev (6.5)
Nepomniachtchi (5.5) - Mamedov (5.5)
Grachev (5.5) - Artemiev (5.5)
Pridorozhni (5.5) - Korobov (5)

Feb-07-15  PhilFeeley: So this is not a knock-out:

then why is the table above so strange?

Feb-07-15  Boomie: <PhilFeeley: then why is the table above so strange?>

The services CG uses to retrieve the games are not perfect especially in large opens. The table here reflects the games in the CG database.

Use to view the current status.

Feb-07-15  Mr. V: Inarkiev kicking butt at his second open tournament in recent months!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Inarkiev drew his game today to retain a half point lead over Petrosian; FIFTEEN are a full point back.

Inarkiev faces Lysyj with white, while Petrosian has black against top seed Nepomniachtchi. With that in mind, Inarkiev should have no problem clinching at least a share of first.

Feb-08-15  geeker: Che wins! I hope he was wearing the Guevara wristband.
Feb-08-15  siggemannen: Congrats to Ernesto! He really rolled 'em
Feb-09-15  bennyvsfischer: nice score irnakiev
Feb-09-15  Severin: I think I once said that Inarkiev was a weak player compared to others on the elite level. More proof that I'm a complete imbecile....
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Is this an upset? I would have guessed Nepomniachtchi or Mamedov would win.
Feb-09-15  pcomanici: IMO one of the premier tournaments in Chess
