Hi everyone,

The second Lev Polugaevsky Chess Memorial will be organised in the quaint city of Samara, Russia, from July 5-13. The nine-round Swiss chess tournament offers a total prize fund of 11,000 euros and would serve as a qualifier for the 2012 Russian Chess Cup.

Denis Khismatullin (2664), Artyom Timofeev (2641), Dmitry Kokarev (2629), Pavel Smirnov (2610), Dmitry Bocharov (2600), Pavel Maletin (2596) and Anton Shomoev (2582) are the top players registered for the chess tournament as of now.

The 1st Polugaevsky Memorial was held in 2011 with 122 players. GM Semen Dvoirys from Chelyabinsk was the sole winner with 7.5 points.
