Must be a side event to the main tournament.

With a score of 8.5/9, it looks like Ernesto Inarkiev is the winner. The only draw he conceded was an 8 move draw. :|

May-11-15  pericles of athens: it would be really neat if there were a way to sort games from tournaments (# of moves, W wins, B wins, etc.)

  offramp: Odd to see Kamsky back in the auld country.
May-18-15  PhilFeeley: All these Russian names of folks we never get to see outside the old SU! I guess not many of them get to travel much, yet they can get up to GM ratings. It must be nice to have a chess culture. I wish Canada did.
Jun-10-15  Everett: Kamsky +5 =4 Nice
