Title: Artemiev at the prizing ceremony Category: Tournament
Comments: February 2006, Rybinsk, the XIV Russian Championship prize ceremony:
Sergey Artemiev is awarded for the 4th place by Pavel Salnikov, the President of Russian Renju Federation. It is worth noting that the trend is teething in Sergey's results last year: he is getting the 4th place whatever the tournament rank is. He was the 4th in Saint-Petersburg Championship, both Russian first and high leagues, World Championship... That's why there is no surprise at all in his result in European Championship that has just finished.
