Well, of course, Rychagov achieved a big upset against Svidler when they met in the 2007 Russian Superfinal: Svidler vs A Rychagov, 2007.

Another fascinating game of Rychagov's from that tournament (ultimately a loss) was this encounter vs. Grischuk: A Rychagov vs Grischuk, 2007.

Aug-03-13  BlackFront: Not to be confused with Shirov's long-time second/trainer, Mikhail Rytshagov.
