You can call him 'my High Level friend'.

  offramp: I was a witness to the incident that gave Yellowknife its name.

That <was> a cold day.

  thegoodanarchist: <People regularly die on their feet at bus stops, some even dying in mid-hail as the bus arrives. >

See, that right there is the problem. Edmontoners (Edmonites?) have to hail the bus at scheduled stops. Here in America the bus stops at the bus stop even if the people waiting are mute.

America leads the world.

Jun-24-16  siggemannen: Ganguly doing quite well here
Jun-24-16  dumbgai: Edmontonians.
Jun-24-16  gauer: Or at their Coliseum station ( ), one might hear Eskimo cheers, presuming of course, that the average Canuck lives in igloos all year around. Such silly stereotypes of the locals are abound in many regions, but maybe there's still a chance for the locals to hit a norm chance.

  eternaloptimist: Ganguly still hasn't played Shankland & Shirov yet so it's doubtful that he will run the table by defeating every player in the tournament. Although he plays Wang today w/ the white pieces so he should keep his winning streak intact at least until tomorrow.
Jun-24-16  ajile: <eternaloptimist: Ganguly still hasn't played Shankland & Shirov yet so it's doubtful that he will run the table by defeating every player in the tournament.>

I just noticed this also. He hasn't played his most serious competition yet.

Jun-24-16  brankat: Of course he has not. He's only 33 :-)

  eternaloptimist: <ajile> Exactly...u r as observant as I am! 😎

<brankat> 😃

Jun-25-16  PhilFeeley: First table I've ever seen where there are no ties for any position.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Valencia actually has two draws, not one, when his games are merged.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: we have 2 B. Valencias in the cross table.

As noted above.

Jun-25-16  sonia91: <no ties for any position.> Findlay and Valencia are tied for last on 1/7 ;) but, yes, it's a impressive table (and Ganguly did "a Caruana").
Jun-26-16  Keshav Murali: Shankland seems to have broken Ganguly's "caruana" run
Jun-26-16  Shams: Ganguly went in for a dubious opening and Shankland destroyed him.

Edmund, Tony and I...

Jun-26-16  Jambow: Shankland looking stronger than ever. Could pull out a 3,000 +TPR after 9 rounds...
Jun-26-16  Shams: Shankland will play the struggling youngster Richard Wang in the final round whereas Ganguly is up against Shirov. Looks like Longshanks will be king once again!
Jun-26-16  Jambow: Actually if he wins the last round his TPR will be slightly under 3k but a magnificent tournament For Shankland.
Jun-27-16  Bruce Graham: Shankland draws- throwing another pigeon among the cats. Now what?
Jun-27-16  dumbgai: Good tournament for Banerjee, 4.5/9 and holding 3 GMs to draws. Also a nice final round win for Sambuev, beating the higher rated Sethuraman (who struggled, losing 3 games).
Jun-28-16  Bruce Graham: Shankland wins it! :
Premium Chessgames Member
  eternaloptimist: Congrats to Shankland for winning this tournament! This has to be a heartbreaker for Ganguly since he was in the lead for almost the entire tournament.
