Aeroflot Open Has Finished

Nine rounds of the Aeroflot Open Chess Tournament has finished four days ago and I do apologize myself that I haven't reported the final results so far.
The reason is that I took part in in Major A section of The Brighton International and having played two games of chess a day I have had very little stamina to report anything. On the top of that, if you are planning to to visit Brighton tournament in the future be prepared that it will rather expensive experience. And when worst comes to the worst, from known reason my mobile internet did not work and the Old Ship Hotel, the venue of tournament has rathe higher charges for internet connection if you need something to publish.

So sorry my dear chess friends for this inconvenience.
