Two favorites of the public can be found on the participants list of the tournament in Pamplona that started the day before yesterday. Alexei Shirov (2720) and Alexander Morozevich (2747) give acte de presence, and also Voktor Laznicka (2596), Radowslaw Wojtaszek (2630), Christian Bauer (2585), Oleg Korneev (2657), Dmitry Jakovenko and Miguel Illescas Cordoba (2620). Already after two rounds, nobody has a hundred percent anymore.

Especially Korneev-Shirov from the first round is interesting. I think Korneev enters a drawing line of the Sveshnikov and then tries to win it. Takes courage, but probably a bit naive against a 2700 player? From round 2 I can recommend Bauer-Korneev.
