    Russian Championship

    The final of the Russian championship will start tomorrow. Below are the prizes for all 12 participants who managed to qualify.

    1 place 1.100.000 rubles
    2 place 800.000 rubles
    3 place 650.000 rubles
    4 place 500.000 rubles
    5 place 400.000 rubles
    6 place 350.000 rubles
    7 place 300.000 rubles
    8 place 250.000 rubles
    9 place 200.000 rubles
    10 place 175.000 rubles
    11 place 150.000 rubles
    12 place 125.000 rubles

    $1 Au equals to approximately 20 rubles.

    Kramnik is not playing. $50,000 USA appearance fee and another $50,000 USA in the first prize are not enough to get him involved. Some people say there is no money in chess. Well, obviously that is true about some countries.

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    Following an initial draw and than a loss Morozevich went on a rampage with 6 straight wins, 4 of which were with the black pieces.
