Greetings. I am interested in this tournament as well. Are there any specific games you'd like to highlight or recommend in particular? I plan on going through them in full myself when I get a chance.

Feb-11-22  syracrophy: My money goes to Suleymanli, the awesome player that stunned the Aeroflot at only 14! Though he may not win this his chess is rich, creative, plays for imbalance.
Feb-12-22  spingo: After 7 rounds there have been 21 draws, with 63 non-draws. It's a cracking tournament.
Feb-14-22  spingo: The semi-finals are
Vasif Durarbayli 2615 v Mahammad Muradli 2528
Misratdin Iskandarov 2566 v Aydin Suleymanli 2530.
