Hi everyone,

Congratulations to Grandmaster Vassily Ivanchuk for winning the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Congress 2011. He just beat GM Daniel Fridman with a cool technical game finishing with a score of 9/10. More updates to follow.

Also, congratulations to Nadezhda Kosintseva for fulfilling her grandmaster norms at the Congress. How fantastic to add more super power to Russian chess. Cool.

    Chucky is kinda cool. Congrats to Nadezhda. Nigel Short has done very well here. Loved his funky games. Original stuff. All the best in Moscow Chess Queen. I am also following you on twitter both at @chessqueen and @kosteniuk even though I cannot follow Russian in the latter but I always like to see the photos that you upload via your Russian account. Stay happy. I love you.
