Morozevich lost in 2nd Round !
Morozevich (photo left) lost to 20 years old Russian -Nikita Vitiugov (another "unknown" GM - photo right) in the 2nd round of 2007 The Russian Championship Superfinals . This year elite supergrandmaster is having a tight non stop schedule . This give certain effect to the player performances and their games. Super GM Mamedyarov and Magnus Carlsen for instance were eleminated in the recent World Cup and in their interview mention fatigue cause by playing too much as the main reason. This factor does explain why Morozevich with FIDE Rating 2755 -world no.6 only achieved 1/2 points so far from the first two rounds!
