Cherny... Who?

I've never heard of this bloke, but GM Konstantin Chernyshov of Russia has just won the Moscow Open. The Asian region, though, can claim their hero in Vietnamese grandmaster Le Quang Liem, who finished 3rd on tiebreak. Here's one of Liem's wins, beating the Indian Sasikiran.

Hey ClosetGrandmaster,
Love the blog. Anyway, you know what would make it even better? In addition to posting a game at the end of the article, you should post that game's .pgn so that people can open the file and watch the game on their Fritz or Internet Chess Club applications. It would save us a lot of time , and it would rock!
