I must say all three of Whites wins were just wonderful to watch, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (AZE) Vs Magnus Carlsen 1-0 Michael Adams (UK) Vs David Navara (CZE) 1-0 and Yue Wang (CHN) Vs Ivan Cheparinov (BUL) 1-0

I do not know how this will turn out but I am using a browser from my usb drive using ScribeFire a most wonderful user friendly application to carry out blog updates no matter where I am.
