Results of Voting

Kramnik came first with 523 votes and on a remarkable distance Anand was second with 236 votes. It is really impressing that despite the bad performance of the Indian GM, many voters insisted on voting for him.
The voting took place at the greek sites Blackqueen and Chess.gr from 24.07.2003 until 05.08.2003. The subject was who would be the winner of Dortmund 2003.
Winner of the contest (after lots were drawn) is Panagiotis Tsialas who gets a book from "Kaissa" stores which we thank for their kind offer. Finally, we would like to thank everyone of you for your participation.
