Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-24-09  Vasilyev90: First!Russian chess added another feather into its cap courtesy of GM Bator Sambuev for winning this 2009 edition of Canadian open ahead of strong players like Nakamura,Shabalov,etc.Congratulations GM Sambuev!
Apr-24-09  Vasilyev90: Here's the link:
Apr-24-09  benjinathan: If I knew it would get on chessgames I would have entered!
Apr-24-09  timhortons: Cheers GM Sambuev for winning this tourney.

BTW is GM Sambuev a Canadian immigrant now? It seems year by year he play in Canadian tourney.

This guy get along well with Canadian chess federation.

Apr-24-09  HSOL: I find really weird to have 5 rounds in a tourney with more than 64 participants considering it would require 7 rounds to have a maximum of one player having a perfect score.
Apr-25-09  Raisin Death Ray: Why is only posting this after it is over?

Also, why would anyone ever spend any time in Toronto, even for a chess tournament! :)

Apr-25-09  mrandersson: wow Vasilyev90 ur 1st thats really something your badge is in the post.
Apr-26-09  chessnutx: Nakamura,Shabalov and several other international players seemed to like playing in Toronto Raisin Death Ray. And what's the big deal if is a week late in posting. That's a lot of games.
