Malmö AS had a bit of success in Xtracon’s Blitz Tournament with CM Richard Persson who took the runner-up place in the B-final and Stefan Printz who won Group 7 and both could cash in 350 DKK respectively. “Not everyday I win this kind of money in chess”, Stefan said with a smile. To Jobava he then said: “let’s share our price money” – referring to an offer he made for fun to GM Pavel Eljanov during Tepe Sigeman regarding World Cup and sharing their price money there 🙂
We should also give a mention to GM Sune Berg Hansen who played the semifinal in the A-group where he lost to the favourite GM Ivan Saric, who later won the final. A pity for Sune who had very good positions in both games. The first game ended in a draw but in the second game Saric could seal the win.
