In this special weekly column we will be looking at the most unexpected upsets that happened last week. Players usually face opponents of a similar level. Considerably less frequent are situations when a significantly lower-rated player succeeds in beating a much stronger adversary.

Hal 3000- coming to a tournament near you.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past twenty years or so, you wouldn't have failed to miss the huge influence that computers now hold over modern chess.

Monte-Carlo cruised through the tournament and won it with a round to go

One thing is certain in the women's tournament: Monte-Carlo repeated last year's success and won gold.
Ugra is 2 MPs ahead of the nearest three rivals - SHM-Nashe Nasledie, CS Politechnica-Anabiotice Iasi and Mika Chess Club. However, according to the allegedly manually done pairings, only SHSM-Nashe Nasledie is basically guaranteed a medal due to facing the rating outsider (#11) of the tournament in the final round, while the other three teams in contention for the medals will be having really challenging match-ups...
