(Tournament continues until Sunday, August 17, 2008)

I've been following's very own Rakhmanator,
aka GM Aleksandr Rakhmanov, and I have seen some very exciting, very strong games over the last few days.

Here's a little taste:

Rakhmanator's round 4 win yesterday was AWESOME!! He was down a pawn (against 2 connected passers, no less!) at move 35 and had achieved victory by move 53 against a 2565 rated player!!

After 5 rounds, he's tied for 2nd place. Drop him a note & cheer him on!
