    Thumbs up

    Hope they took a compass and some medical supplies... wouldnt want to get stuck in the middle of siberia.
    Just how many connections will they need to get to Khanty-Mansysk?
    Is it a case of planes,trains and automobiles?
    Anyway best of luck,Akopian is a pretty tough opponent to get in the first round. Hopefully one day the ocenia qualifier will get someone who isnt a 2600+ player in the first round.

    Pretty cold in Siberia!

    Qantas to London. British Airways to Moscow. 2 night stay in Moscow. Then 3 hour internal flight to KM. Temperature expected to be -40.

    Khanty-Mansiysk.....The town is situated in the Western Siberia, on Irtysh river. <- isnt this the river that has the 80 km oil slick flowing down it and they are stopping the water supply for all the town that take their water from it. It was on the radio news yesterday. Maybe its a different river.

    Anywho The World Chess Cup 2005 starts today - the 26/11... I think their 26th would be the same as our, maybe half a day difference. Arrh Opening Ceremony and Players Meeting is today - Games start tomorrow at 15:00

    I am curious.

    I have had a look at the draw for round one, which I expected to find Lane/Akopian, but I dont see it in the official round 1 draw. Game 7 is not listed. Is this just a mistake, or is something else going on?

    no it is not, the river that has been poisoned is actually in China, but flows into russia downstream.

    Saying that, considering fide's record on tournaments, something going wrong like that would be just par for the course

    Lane progresses to second round

    Gary Lane is into Rd 2 after Akopian failed to show up. It was too late to add a reserve or do a redraw so Gary won in a walkover. Why Akopian failed to show isn't clear at the moment.

    akopian had a medical problem and so informed the organisers beforehand
    he was unable to go.

    Who is next Jobava or Beliavsky?

    In the next round Gary will play against winner of a very interesting grudge match between young georgian internet blitzmeister B.Jobava and a few times former USSR champion and former candidate Alexander Beliavsky.Only a few months ago in the richest tournament in America Jobava beat Beliavsky and went on to win first prize $US 50000.At the moment (after 23 moves) Jobava has slight advantage but I think that Beliavsky should be able to hold position without too much trouble.
