Actually, Stephen is a member now of Bury Chess Club; he brought his trophy along to last night's club AGM; very impressive

He told us his mother played (in one of the lower sections) too

Re: Grand-Prix 2017 Events Venues and Dates confirmed

Thank you; I looked and couldn't find anything

MVL & Ding will know what they need to do; although Shak could be qualified by then; Grischuk is the other key player at Geneva

MVL missing Geneva to play Dortmund

Any clue who is playing Geneva? I know that Giri, Svidler, Radjabov, Jakovenko, Eljanov, Li Chao, Rapport, Harikrishna, Gelfand, Aronian, Inarkiev & Riazantsev must be playing both Geneva & Mallorca (as they have each missed 1 of the first 2 GPs)

Re: Quarter Final Draw

Glad you enjoyed the game, Michael, a long day for you no doubt; I see the other 2 Lancs teams lost though

Re: Timeline for 2800 ratings

He now has a live rating of 2800.0 at the finish of the Moscow GP; I assume he won't play any more rated games this month, so you can add him to the list wef 1 June
