Сurrent standing in the overall World Cup


25-06-2016  Winner of the classical program Vladimir Skrabov about the stage of World Cup:

I want to congratulate President of IDF Vladimir Langin with the successful holding of the Italian Stage of World Cup. This year the World Cup is held in cooperation with the Foundation “Russian Draughts” (Leader Alexander Gaidukov), which favorably affects the size of the prize fund.

For me personally, the second stage was formed ambiguous. Not the most successful performance in the Italian draughts, a disappointing defeat in the last round from Andrey Gnelitskiy in Brazilian draughts which threw me on the fifth place and clear first place in the Russian classic program.

Two words about the opponents. Monumentally is solid in all disciplines Dmitry Tsinman, who is rightly leader on this moment in the World Cup. Seeking and almost always finds its chance in the “exotic” types of draughts Andrey Gnelitsky. Pleasantly pleased his fresh game Moldovan Denis Dudco and Oleg Polikarpov from Yaroslavl, recently not often indulgent sporting community with their presence. Dangerous and toothy is young Damir Rysaev.

Thank you, Vladimir Langin and Alexander Gaidukov for a good tournament! See you at next Stages of World Cup!
