GM Pontus Carlsson finished 3rd in the recent Swedish Championship. He was vying for the top spot but was crippled both by a spate of draws and a crucial loss to Pia Cramling in the penultimate 8th round. After that loss, GM Daniel Semcesen was able to hold to edge both GM Erik Blomqvist (5.5/9) and Carlsson (5/9). GM Emmanuel Berg also finished on 5/9. Carlsson has been spending more time working on his web presence and has launched a new website. At the time of this writing, Carlsson was working on a project in the Czech Republic. He told The Chess Drum that he will be playing in the Qatar Masters in November.
