Tromso Olympiad Recap: Rd. 5

8.Β Sanon (2012) – IM Warner (2243) 1-0

7. GM Karjakin (2786) – GM Iotov (2553) 0-1

This was a HUGE upset that allowed Bulgaria to save the match with Russia. My only question is I wonder if GM Iotov’s back is okay because he’s been carrying the Bulgarian’s for the whole tournament scoring an amazing 5/5 with a performance rating of 3277!

    Nice blog πŸ™‚ Number 1 should be Wong – Frick, 1-0 though. Can’t really see black winning that one πŸ˜‰

      There was another instance where someone was also forfeited against someone much weaker, I deliberately left those out. You are correct though, that was the biggest upset of the round :).

        I think you misunderstood me, I just pointed out that you got the colors / score reversed in the heading of your number 1 in this post (pg. 6).

          OMG, you’re right! Totally missed the point there, thanks for catching that. I thought you were referring to something else, I fixed the typo; good catch! Let me know if you find others, I’m sure there out there…

            Now it’s better, but still a little wrong πŸ˜‰ 1-0, not 0-1.
