  pawn to QB4: Anyone from Wales following the performance of this man at the Olympiad? After 8 rounds he's by a long way scoring the top rating performance by a British player or an IM from anywhere.
May-29-06  crwynn: Aleksandrov follows standard GM strategy against weaker players of trading to boring endgame and grinding them to death (Aleksandrov vs L Williams, 2006) - then adds a little twist on move 30. He's making some odd bishop moves in this Olympiad....

But L Williams vs F Amonatov, 2006 is the kinda game everyone loves to play. Or watch. Black's final move is a bit odd though...a fit of pique?

He certainly is having a great olympiad so far.
