International grandmaster Anton Shomoyev, who won the Center Corporation Cup, noted: “This is the first time I’ve been to Izhevsk and I like the city very much. The contest was well organized, so there I didn’t have to care about anything and stayed totally focused on the game. The rivals were very smart. I had a creative mood throughout the competition - this helped me utilize a lot of new ideas and win”.

Anton’s near-term plans are to take part in the Russian Fast Chess Championship to begin in Irkutsk on 11 August. In September, Anton will arrive in Vladivostok.

“On behalf of our Shatar Chess Club and on my own, I would like to thank METROPOL Group of Companies and the Fund for Protection of Lake Baikal for their generous contribution to the promotion of chess sport in our republic and for their long-lasting support to our team”, said international grandmaster Anton Shomoyev.
