Jun-10-14  GumboGambit: Something doesnt add up here. Looks like a won position for Black, which would have evened up the rapid tiebreak. Yet Gelfand moved on, and the available records say he won +2 -0. ?

  perfidious: Come to Azmai, who knows? Maybe he fixed the result--been known to happen before.
Jun-10-14  Jim Bartle: It was a Knockout event. Maybe Azmai took it literally and was disqualified.
