| 0 | Chess Event Coverage
Again there wasn't much thrilling going on in Dortmund yesterday, where the players kept on being very peaceful (although they did play some chess before scoring the half points). So why not have a look at that other very strong tournament that was going on. Yesterday the Aerosvit Tournament in Foros (Ukraine) ended; it was won by my favorite player of the moment: Vassily Ivanchuk. His victory over Shirov was amazing.
