Re: New MOT Grunfeld Indian
Thanks Jaume for pointing out the mistake .
The point in discussion (which is now missing from the crosstable)
is from
 
BladeRunner -Kastelka 0-1 ( Nov 10)
 
so the score for Kastelka should be 11.5 - 2.5
 
Thanks Gladiator for all tedious work you are doing updating the cross table.

Re: New MOT Grunfeld Indian
Thanks Gladiator. Very adjusted result. However, I'm happy because this result is with one of my favourite defences. The indobenoni variant it is also a fascinating defence that I use regularly.
 
Congratulations to all competitors that makes this tournament very amusing.

Re: New MOT Grunfeld Indian
Power! There ought to be some kind of misunderstanding or mistake . . . But where? If I am mistaken I am very sorry and embarrassed and I do apologize – but so far you haven´t managed to convince me that so really is the case here. Have you even checked the game I refer to?
 
Alltså, bäste power, menar du att partiet NCH1257088050008160000898 (soto2- power) inte är avslutat? Enligt Caissa (”Corr games”, ”Results”) är resultatet 1-0, och jag minns också att jag mottog besked om att du givit upp och bekräftade det på vanligt sätt. Eller menar du att partiet i fråga inte ingår i Grunfeldsturneringen?? Bland mina pågående partier (”Active games”) har jag bara ett mot dig, och det är vårt Grunfeldparti där du har vitt . . . Förklara dig! Please, explain yourself!

Re: New MOT Grunfeld Indian
Soto2-Kastelka 0-1 (3/21/2010)
 
This might be the last game in the Grunfeld MOT.
It was one of my best games in this tourney.
Congratulations to Soto for such a stiff resistance. At times I believed that the game is lost for me( I had a very uncomfortable position throughout the opening period and most of the middle game)
