Hello from Kramnik

Photo report about the third day of the festival

At first tables- up to only Kings. No one influences on chess-youth even Dreev. Alexey got his second point with great difficulty. Alexey Fedorov (in the middle) , watching the game, knows what it means- he has just lost half a point in the tournament.

However Eugeny Najer had to remember basic rooks endings

To let everyone in and keep them in. Some minutes before the start of the tournament in front of RSSU entrance there is a crowd of people - only one frame and lots of eagers to enter

A new brainteaser for the favorite Sergey Ionov from St. Petersburg.

TV broadcast was a habitual guest in the main hall of Moscow open 2007 from the first move in the first round
All the energy for struggle: Dmitry Bocharov and Alexey Alexandrov

Maxim Turov (the left one) is The equanimity.

Struggle of the best ones: Balashov- Sorokin
What is in Grandmasters head? Perhaps only rooks, queens, kings, bishops and knights
What is the best way to look on board?

Hard women fate
Pangs of creation. Young Sergey Yudin and the winner of tournament-2006 Alexander Lastin

As last year roster of seven-day players is a small one.

However comers exactly from this group really struggled for victory. How it will be now?
Ask the winner of B tournament Anvar Turdyev...
