Canadian Open Coverage

The coverage of the Canadian Open Chess Championship at ChessBase rivals that seen at the recently completed U.S. Championship, complete with photos, video, and annotated games:
I especially appreciate the excellent notes and commentary from GM Alexander Shabalov, whose comments on games from Round 1, Rounds 2-3, Rounds 4-6 and Round 7 can be played through online. I recommend the "master vs amateur" lessons from the early rounds, which illustrate what Shabalov at one point calls "professionalism at its best." The final round starts at noon today, and I will likely post an update after it concludes.
