              Congratulations, Anton. A very significant victory against one of the all-time greats, Vishy Anand, who is still playing around a 2800 level.

                  It looks like Anton plays Rodshtein who has just beaten Michael Adams.

                  Nakamura and Fedoseev are in the same bracket

                    Rd2.2 Kovalyov - Anand

                    the round 2.2 draw in Kovalyov - Anand is annotated on the CFC Newsfeed:

                    http://chess.ca/newsfeed/node/998

                    Michael Adams just lost, so Anton plays Maxim Rodshtein in round 3.

                    Anton is now 84th in the world on the live list, and Rodshtein is now 47th, just under 2700.

                        Wow!!!

                        Besides Anton amazing play Fedoseev has impressed me too. He already has 2 miniatures (25 moves or less)!
