Re: Grand-Prix 2017 Events Venues and Dates confirmed

Yes, a draw puts Shak ahead of MVL in the race for 1 of the 2 Candidates spots; a win would almost see him qualified, but a loss would put him behind MVL of course I'm guessing as MVL had a long game yesterday, and doesn't seem to think he has been playing well, a quick draw is possibly the result ...

Re: VI International Open Llucmajor

He can be very happy with a 2600+ performance and (barring a white win on board 3) a share of second place. We don't see much about Stephen Gordon these days in tournaments and leagues.
