IN discussion about Mt Buller Ian Rogers said he was going to be playing in a GM tournament in Augsburg starting 27th of December. Does anyone know where I might find the results of the tournament?

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any internet coverage at all... At least, I could find hardly anything, and I think I know my way around the german chess scene fairly well...

All I can tell you is that the tournament is apparently sponsored by the Accor hotel group (...), its official name is "Ibis-Accor-Augsburg Int. GM-Turnier", and after ten of eleven rounds (last round today) GM Rogers is on 6 pts in joint 2nd place with GM Atalik, a full point behind GM Rozentalis.

Other players: Olaf Heinzel, Gregory Pitl, Lotte Arnold, Christoph Renner, Helmut Wolfsteiner, Ferenc Langheinrich, Tibor Reiss (and 2 others...). Don't know titles or ratings of these, though apparently there are no other GMs playing.

According to an e-mail I had from Ian there is no web page.

Winner is Rozentalis at 7.5/11, ahead of Rogers and Atalik. IM norms for Olaf Heinzel and Gregory Pitl.
