Ukranian Zonal 1.9

Mark Crowther reports at his page...


The Ukranian Zonal 1.9 (also the "Absolute Championships of the Ukraine")took place in Ordzhonikidze June 7th-19th 2000. There were three FIDE
qualification places available from the Zonal. The first place was taken by Alexander Onischuk who scored 6.5/9 half a point clear of the trio Vladimir
Baklan, Vereslav Eingorn and Oleg Romanishin. Romanishin lost out on the final qualification place due to an inferior 'truncated Buchgolz' tiebreak.
Onischuk won from a drawish position against Ovsejevitsch, after he found he needed a win due to his tie-break position. It seems to have been up to
the organisers of the Zonal what tie-break method was used, with playoffs used in some zonals and tie-breaks in others. The top four players plus
Vassily Ivanchuk and Ruslan Ponomariov (both already qualified for the FIDE Championships) will make up the Ukranian Olympiad side.

My thanks to Mikhail Golubev.
