Big shock in round 1 as Carlsen held to a draw with white (!) by Georgian IM/WGM Nino Batsiashvili (2498). Also Wei Yi and Vitiugov lose to 2470-rated opponents and plenty of draws.

Moulthun Ly is playing but lost to Ponomariov in round 1.

Moulthun put up a great fight! Also, on board 2, another Georgian lady almost drew with Kramnik despite misplaying the opening!

Carlsen won, same with giri. Wei yi won also,
Moulthon currently +5 by engine and his opponent has 3 minutes but will have to see if he converted once I wake up.

Funnily enough only took him 3 minutes to convert after my post.
He was versing a 2313 WFM from India.

I usually don't start norm speculation til at least round five lest the player have early losses and fall into the dreaded Bony Chicken zone* from which no norm has ever been recovered. If anyone wants to check the regs for norms you can read them here:

Batsiashvili won against Khotenashvili to determine the place for the nominated player for the Georgian part of the FIDE Grand Prix which is being held next year. I met both of them when I was in Tbilisi after their match. Both are lovely people and Batsiashvili has being improving from strength to strength according to chess players in Georgia.

By the way although the tournament is billed as an Open, it is only open for 2300+ ratings (I note there are a few lower ratings who may have been 2300+ when they entered.) I was wondering how they kept the rabbits out!

Women players can enter if they are 2200 or higher to my understanding and knowledge. As for men, they have to seek position from the organiser to play in the event if they are 2300.

That makes sense. Two of the three sub-2300s are female. The third is 2287 but has not been over 2300 recently so must have been let in.

Kevin Bonham

By my calculations Moulthun needs at least 1.5/2 for a norm, and if he scores exactly 1.5 then his round 9 opponent must be rated at least 2543 (there are several on 4/7 with him who are not that high). His round 8 opponent is Khismatullin (2654).

Carlsen has been joined in the lead by Mamedyarov and Sjugirov.

Carlsen (6.5) - Kramnik (6) and Yu (6) - So (5.5) in the final round. If there is a tie for first then there is a blitz playoff. It seems to be a two-game match then another two-game match then games continuing until someone wins a game.

Another interesting thing in the regulations is 15 minutes leeway for late players rather than the FIDE zero tolerance rubbish.

Moulthon came 47th as the 83rd seed, again exploited an inaccuracy and played extremely accurately after that point however his 2597 rated opponent did play a couple moves in a row that really deteriorated his own position, good on Moulthon. I believe his next tournament is Gibraltar Open which is just as strong as this one, but someone closer to him from QLD could maybe confirm if he's playing a tournament in the meantime.

That's true. But Carlsen played a manifestly harder field to get the same score so it would have been a pity if this had been trumped in a clock-thumping competition.

Moreover Carlsen played a tougher field because he had more points in the later stages and that in turn is what gave him the luxury of being able to take a draw. So it all balances out and justice was done (which is not always the case with tie-breaks).

That's true. But Carlsen played a manifestly harder field to get the same score so it would have been a pity if this had been trumped in a clock-thumping competition.

Moreover Carlsen played a tougher field because he had more points in the later stages and that in turn is what gave him the luxury of being able to take a draw. So it all balances out and justice was done (which is not always the case with tie-breaks).

So the best man wins. Like the finish to the London Classic.

I believe his next tournament is Gibraltar Open which is just as strong as this one, but someone closer to him from QLD could maybe confirm if he's playing a tournament in the meantime.

Moulthun's next tournament looks like the Marienbad Open 2016 in the Czech Republic, playing in the round-robin GM tournament, 16th-23rd January.

Edit: Moulthun is currently playing in Roquetas International 2nd-6th January.
