As a comments:

1. We have a right to wait good performance of S.Shevelyov, M.Kazarin, D.Nekrasov and Yu.Savrasova at Youth World Championship in Arjeplog this summer.

Kazarin had a very strong tournament. He win Savrasova, Krasnonosov, Makarov, played draw with Sinyov and losed Soosyrv, Nikonov and Fedorkin.

Shevelyov had a good luck as winner, but there are won games against Soosyrv, Fedorkin, Nikonov in his active.

2. Historical moment! First "cyborg" played among peoples. Computer program Meijin-2000 under famous Oleg Stepanov control left behind some strong players.

3. It was really a nice event because some renju senjors join us: you may find a name of Sergei Pereplyotchikov among participants. It was first Sergei's tournament after about 8 years delay. Sergei Maslyaev and inimitable Mikhail Biryukov were observed among spectators.

Moscow Club thanks all visitors from Tallinn, Nizhny Novgorod, Poduga, Volgograd, Belgorod, St.Petersburg and invites everybody to take part in the next Moscow Open Tournament.

Best Regards,
Konstantin Nikonov
