Paris Grand Chess Tour Rapid Day 3 Recap

Chessdom - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 23:44

Wesley So won the rapid portion of Paris Grand Chess Tour after drawing all his games today. However, unlike in Leuven where he had a three-point lead over the field going into the blitz, he only has a one-point lead now, thus putting himself in a more vulnerable position. Sergey Karjakin and Hikaru Nakamura are now tied for second place and are only one win away from catching the leader. There were several notable performances which shook up the standings. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave scored 2.5/3 and is now tied for fourth place and three points behind So. So’s countryman Fabiano Caruana who has been struggling both in Leuven and Paris also had an excellent showing today with 2.5/3 and finds himself four points behind the leader. The weekend of blitz promises to bring a lot of excitement!

Round 7
There were no changes in the standings at the top as they all drew their games whereas the two bottom finishers started to slowly move up. Fabiano Caruana blitzed out his excellent preparation against Vladimir Kramnik and after the opening had just as much time left on his clock as he did at the beginning of the game. There was one moment in the game where Caruana blundered allowing his opponent to completely turn the tables. Alas, the former World Champion missed his chance and went on to lose the game. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave did not hide his intentions of going after his opponent’s throat. He launched an attack against Shakriyar Mamedyarov’s king starting on move seven and won the game twenty five moves later when the Azeri grandmaster succumbed to the pressure.

Round 8
Wesley So maintained his lead by drawing his closest rival, Sergey Karjakin. His other rival, Levon Aronian, lost to Fabiano Caruana, who seemed to have finally found his form by that point. After winning a pawn, the American showed flawless technique to bring the full point home. Viswanathan Anand and Hikaru Nakamura played a truly epic battle where they both ran their kings to the opposite side of the board. The topsy turvy battle eventually ended in Nakamura’s favor. Shakriyar Mamedyarov recovered from his loss with a win over Alexander Grischuk while Vladimir Kramnik and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave drew their game.

Round 9
The draw against Viswanathan Anand who suffered a heartbreaking loss the round before was enough for Wesley So to secure his first-place ranking. Hikaru Nakamura and Sergey Karjakin drew Shakriyar Mamedyarov and Fabiano Caruana, respectively, thus staying a point behind the leader. Levon Aronian suffered his second loss in a row, helping his opponent Maxime Vachier-Lagrave improve his position in the standings significantly. The only other decisive game was between Alexander Grischuk and Vladimir Kramnik, which was determined in the time scramble. The players kept blundering the game away, until Grischuk made the final mistake and was forced to resign.

After three more days of rapid, Wesley So emerged as the sole leader of the tournament. He is now a full point ahead of the field, with Levon Aronian and Sergy Karjakin trailing him closely. Both So and Karjakin had an excellent showing today, scoring 2.5/3 points. The Russian grandmaster expressed that his rival is playing brilliant chess and might be unstoppable, but felt much more confident after his second win of the day. Levon Aronian came into the day tied with the leader but was not able to keep pace and only won one game. Hikaru Nakamura and Viswanathan Anand are trailing the leader by two points and are still a striking distance away. Tomorrow the winner of the rapid portion will be decided.

Round 4
The day started with a bloody round of four decisive games and just one draw. Two of the leaders, Wesley So and Levon Aronian kept pace with each other by defeating Vladimir Kramnik and Shakriyar Mamedyarov, respectively. The American won in a quiet manner, by locking his opponent’s knight out of the game and winning material. Mamedyarov played quite aggressively in the opening, launching an attack on the kingside, but Aronian was able to turn the tables and went for a king hunt himself. Viswanathan Anand, who was the other leader coming into the round, wasn’t able to break through Sergey Karjakin’s defense and had to settle for a draw. Alexander Grischuk won an attacking game against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave with a nice tactical shot. Hikaru Nakamura took any chance he could get against his Olympiad teammate Fabiano Caruana, who is seemingly poor form. His efforts eventually paid off when Caruana collapsed and blundered several times in the endgame.

Round 5
The quieter round allowed Welsey So to become a clear leader after defeating Alexander Grischuk. The Russian sacrificed a pawn in a dynamic position but overlooked a knight retreat which left So with decisive material advantage. Sergey Karjakin demonstrated why opposite color bishops are dangerous in the middlegame by launching a devastating attack against Shakriyar Mamedyarov’s king. Levon Aronian remained a point behind the leader with a solid draw against Valdimir Kramnik. Hikaru Nakamura and Viswanathan Anand tied with Karjakin for third place after drawing Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Fabiano Caruana respectively.
Round 6
Sergey Karjakin kept climbing in the standings after unleashing a brilliant sacrifice and leaving Vladimir Kramnik’s king defenseless. The draws in the rest of the games allowed the Russian to tie for second place with only a point behind the leader. In the big match up of the round between Levon Aronian and Wesley So, the Armenian was not able to utilize his slight advantage and settled for the peaceful result. Viswanathan Anand and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave agreed to a draw when there were only kings left on the board. Hikaru Nakamura was once again the last man standing until Alexander Grischuk forced a draw with a perpetual check. The early piece exchanges in the battle between Shakriyar Mamedyarov and Fabiano Caruana lead to an uneventful game.

Paris Grand Chess Tour Rapid Day 1 Recap

Chessdom - Thu, 06/21/2018 - 08:38

Three days after the conclusion of Your Next move, the players continued on to Paris for the second leg of Grand Chess Tour. The wildcard for this event is former World Champion Vladimir Kramnik, who was also a wildcard in last year’s edition. After three rounds of rapid, Wesley So, Levon Aronian and Viswanathan Anand are tied for the lead with 4/6. Tomorrow promises to bring even more excitement as the leaders will be facing off against each other.

Standings after round 3. In the rapid a win is worth 2 points, a draw is 1 point and a loss is 0
Round 1
The winner of the Your Next Move Wesley So took an early lead by defeating his countryman Fabiano Caruana, just as he did in Leuven. Levon Aronian kept pace with a win over Alexander Grischuk. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave had material advantage against Sergey Karjakin but was unable to convert with the black pieces. Vladimir Kramnik and Shakriyar Mamedyarov drew Hikaru Nakamura and Viswanathan Anand respectively.

Round 2
This round also saw two decisive results. After his first round win, Wesley So immediately stumbled and lost to Shakriyar Mamedyarov in an opposite color bishop endgame. In the match of former World Champions, Vladimir Kramnik’s blunder against Viswanathan Anand cost him a rook and consequently the game. World Championship contender Fabiano Caruana recovered from his first round loss with a solid draw with the black pieces against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. The all-Russian match up of Alexander Grischuk and Sergey Karjakin was a quiet affair as was the one between Hikaru Nakamura and Levon Aronian.

Round 3
This was the bloodiest round of the day with three decisive games. Wesley So sacrificed his queen for a rook, a bishop and a pawn. The material imbalance favored the American, forcing Maxime Vachier-Lagrave to give up even more material and thus resign. Vladimir Kramnik showed off his superior endgame skills, after Shakriyar Mamedyarov misplayed the position at the key moment. Levon Aronian and Viswanathan Anand drew quickly whereas the game between Sergey Karjakin and Hikaru Nakamura was a slugfest. The two grandmasters battled it out until they had mere seconds left on the clock. The evaluation of the position kept changing as the players were blitzing their moves, finally reaching a position where there weren’t enough pieces left on the board to keep playing.

«Ο Αλφόνσο διδάσκει Μπρόνσταιν!» στο Μουσείο Βυζαντινού Πολιτισμού Θεσσαλονίκης

Skakistiko - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 14:31

Εγκαίνια περιοδικής έκθεσης  «Ο Αλφόνσο διδάσκει Μπρόνσταιν!» στο Μουσείο Βυζαντινού Πολιτισμού, την Τετάρτη 27 Ιουνίου 2018, ώρα 20.00.

Ζωγραφικά και χαρακτικά έργα του Νικόλα Σφήκα με θέμα το σκάκι παρουσιάζονται στο Μουσείο Βυζαντινού Πολιτισμού από τις 27 Ιουνίου έως τις 2 Σεπτεμβρίου 2018 στο πλαίσιο της έκθεσης «Ο Αλφόνσο διδάσκει Μπρόνσταιν!».

Ο καλλιτέχνης εμπνέεται και μεταλλάσσει δημιουργικά τις μεσαιωνικές μορφές του «Βιβλίου των παιχνιδιών» (Libro de ajedrez, dados, y tablas, 1283) του Αλφόνσου I’ του Σοφού (1221-1284), βασιλιά της Καστίλης και της Λεόν. Οι αφαιρετικές μορφές που προκύπτουν καλούνται να εικονογραφήσουν «το άνοιγμα της Ινδικής του Βασιλιά», μία εμβληματική σκακιστική κίνηση που εξέλιξε ο σπουδαίος σκακιστής του 20ού αιώνα Νταβίντ Μπρονστάιν (1924-2006).

Στον κόσμο του Νικόλα Σφήκα, οι μεσαιωνικές μορφές, με ενδυμασίες που αντανακλούν τα καλαίσθητα βόρεια γοτθικά στιλ, εικονίζονται να εξετάζουν τη μοντέρνα σκακιστική θεωρία. Οι παρτίδες συνοδεύονται ενίοτε από μουσική, αλλά αυτό που πρωτίστως αντανακλάται είναι το ίδιο το σκεπτικό του Αλφόνσου: η αναγωγή του παιχνιδιού σε μέσο κατάλυσης των διαφορών ανάμεσα σε διαφορετικές φυλές, θρησκείες και δοξασίες.

Κατά τη διάρκεια των εγκαινίων θα παρουσιαστεί στον χώρο της έκθεσης εικαστικό δρώμενο με τίτλο «Φιλικοί αγώνες μεταξύ δύο σκακιστριών».

Ο Νικόλας Σφήκας σπούδασε στην Ανώτατη Σχολή Καλών Τεχνών του Πανεπιστημίου Helwan Καΐρου. Εκπόνησε τη διδακτορική διατριβή του στη Σχολή Καλών Τεχνών του Αριστοτελείου Πανεπιστημίου Θεσσαλονίκης. Έχει στο ενεργητικό του 25 ατομικές εκθέσεις ζωγραφικής, στην Ελλάδα και στο εξωτερικό, πολλές ομαδικές και έχει βραβευτεί επανειλημμένα. Το όνομά του συμπεριλαμβάνεται σε πολλά λεξικά και εγκυκλοπαίδειες. Έργα του βρίσκονται σε Ιδιωτικές Συλλογές και Πινακοθήκες.

Ρέτρο-σαχ
Ρεύμα τέχνης με θέμα την κίνηση στο σκάκι. Η ονομασία προέρχεται από το Retro  που σημαίνει επαναφορά και Shahπου είναι ο βασιλιάς. Ο όρος χρησιμοποιήθηκε από τον Νικόλα Σφήκα το 1993 για να περιγράψει ζωγραφικά έργα του που εκφράζουν τα συναισθήματα που εγκυμονεί ο μεταφυσικός κόσμος της κίνησης στη σκακιέρα. Τα  έργα προχωρούν μέσα από την ενορατική κατανόηση μιας παρτίδας ή μιας φάσης προβλήματος και αναπαριστούν την πνευματική και ψυχική ενέργεια που συσσωρεύεται με την κίνηση των κομματιών στη χωρο-χρονική διάσταση της σκακιέρας.

Κριτικό σημείωμα

Τα ζωγραφικά έργα και οι ακουαρέλες του Νικόλα Σφήκα με θέμα το σκάκι είναι εξαιρετικά και παρουσιάζουν έντονο ενδιαφέρον. Οι διακοσμητικές λεπτομέρειες και τα μοτίβα του που θυμίζουν ψηφιδωτά είναι υποβλητικά και πρωτότυπα. Παρόλο που εμπνέουν το έργο του αρχαίες πηγές, εισάγει τα προσωπικά του στοιχεία, μοναδικά και καινοτόμα.

Το έργο του χαρακτηρίζεται από θαυμαστή ποικιλία έκφρασης και η τεχνοτροπία του αποτίει φόρο τιμής στην κλασική ελληνική εικαστική παράδοση, καθώς κι εκείνη που συνεχίστηκε με τον Ντε Κίρικο. Συγχρόνως θυμίζει την εκλεπτυσμένη αναλαμπή των βυζαντινών ψηφιδωτών, τα διακοσμητικά μοτίβα του Γκούσταβ Κλιμτ, κι ακόμη την πολύχρωμη λυρική αφαίρεση των υδατογραφιών του Καντίνσκι. Κι όλα αυτά με την προσωπική του σφραγίδα αυθεντικότητας.

Η σύνδεση που επινόησε ανάμεσα στο σκάκι και τόσες άλλες όψεις της ζωής και της τέχνης είναι εντυπωσιακή και άκρως ενδιαφέρουσα. Ωστόσο το έργο του παρουσιάζει πολλές εκφάνσεις, ενώ είναι ευδιάκριτη και η αιγυπτιακή επιρροή, αφού ο καλλιτέχνης γεννήθηκε και μεγάλωσε στην Αίγυπτο.

19th ASEAN+ Age-Group Chess Championships 2018

Chessdom - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 09:07

The 19th ASEAN+ Age-Group Chess Championships 2018 is now underway following a grand opening ceremony at the Royal Mandaya hotel in Davao City, Philippines.

With 566 players from 12 countries, this year’s championship is the fourth biggest in history and once again the battle for bragging rights as the overall winners will be very much be between defending champions and host Philippines and perennial ASEAN chess powerhouse Vietnam.

Representatives of the Major of the City of Davao and the Philippine Chess Commission which underwrote the event were very much in evidence and demonstrated a strong commitment to the event in both words and deed.

On top of the ringing endorsements, the legendary Eugene Torre, Asia’s 1st Grandmasters, was nonetheless still called up to to further inspire the participants!

ASEAN Chess Confederation (ACC) and National Chess Federation of the Philippines (NCFP) President Prospero “Butch” A. Pichay Jr, also the Congressman from neighbouring Cagayan de Oro City, and very much a Mindanao native, was a very articulate keynote speaker, giving due credit to the parties involved in making the event happen while sharing his love of Mindanao and it’s capital Davao City.

Pichay also made the ceremonial opening moves with a young Vietnamese champion who really wanted to play on, before Ruel V. Canobas, NCFP Director In-Charge officially declared the ASEAN+ Age-Group Chess Championships 2018 open.

In the closing remarks, ACC Founding President Ignatius Leong congratulated Pichay on his leadership and Davao City for its organisational excellence while recognising the critical role played by co-founder Dang Tat Thang from Vietnam for the survival and flourishing of the ACC and the ASEAN Age-Group Championships for almost two decades.
