  HeMateMe: Looks like Petrosian is making a comeback. You can't keep a good man down!
Jun-08-12  shivasuri4: Petrosian played 50 classical games in the last 4 months before this. These namesake jokes can be quite irritating at times, <HeMateMe>, especially when they are repeated so often.
Jun-08-12  shivasuri4: Petrosian won his fourth round game against Li Shilong and now has 4/4. Fine start for the 27 year old Armenian, who is at a career peak (so far) of 2657.

  HeMateMe: <shivasuri4> We can't all be perfect, like you.
Jun-09-12  shivasuri4: <HeMateMe>, I made no claim of being perfect, and I am not asking you to be perfect either. I only plead you to try and avoid repeating such lame jokes so often on multiple fora.
Jun-09-12  DanielBryant: Stop acting like chess players, guys.
Jun-09-12  shivasuri4: Petrosian (4.5) drew against L' Ami(4) in the fifth round, while Alexander Ipatov (4.5) beat Adam Hunt in 72 moves. Lu Shanglei (4.5) beat Radoslav Dimitrov and Tunik Gennady(4.5) beat Rusev Krasimir. So 4 players share the lead presently.

Could someone please provide the page for this event?

The official site is http://golden-sands-2012.chessmix.c... .

Jun-09-12  shivasuri4: The top seed Vladimir Akopian is ranked 24th with 4 points after round 5. His tiebreaks are poor, hence the low ranking. He can still launch a comeback in this 9 round Swiss.
Jun-13-12  fref: Congratulation to Lu Shanglei for his victory, with a last round win and a 7,5/9 score!
Jun-21-12  achieve: This leaderboard and final standings not updated?
