Eight other GMs have joined the quickest of three schedules, all to merge on Friday night. In the six-day schedule, the highest ranked GM is Loek Van Wely of the Netherlands. Defending champ GM Alejandro Ramirez also chose the six-day--he won an interesting game against Barber co-champ Michael Brown in round three.

Van Wely defeated another talented youngster in round three, Stuart Finney in an interesting game.
