Your Next Move Grand Chess Tour Blitz Day 1 Recap

Sat, 06/16/2018 - 10:05

There was a big shake up in the standings after a full day of blitz. Wesley So still leads the tournament but his lead has narrowed to only one and a half points. The 2016 World Blitz Champion Sergey Karjakin dominated the day by scoring 6.5 points out of 9. He is now tied for second place in the overall standings with Levon Aronian. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Hikaru Nakamura are still also striking distance away from the leaders. With nine more rounds tomorrow, the tournament is still wide open, as a good or bad day for one of the leaders could completely change the outcome.

Wesley So had a strong start to the day when he extended his lead to three points before the start of round seven. Things started to turn sour when he found himself in a lost position against his countryman Fabiano Caruana but miraculously drew. This was indicative of So’s trouble to come as his solid play suddenly became shaky. He lost his next game to Shakriyar Mamedyarov then again to Hikaru Nakamura after an elementary blunder in time scramble.

Sergey Karjakin, on the other hand, moved up in the standings by winning his last three games defeating close rival Vachier-Lagrave, as well as Mamedyarov and the struggling Caruana. He was the only undefeated player of the day, which comes as no surprise as he is known for his blitz skills and finished second in the 2017 World Blitz Championship behind Magnus Carlsen. If he can repeat this performance tomorrow, he will be the favorite to win Your Next Move.
Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Levon Aronian entered the day as So’s closest rivals with three points behind the leader. Up until round seven, Vachier-Lagrave was the only other undefeated player besides So. His only half point in the last three games came from his draw against Aronian himself. The Armenian, on the other hand, had a good finish to the day, by scoring 2.5 points in the last three games, thus leapfrogging the Frenchman.

Hikaru Nakamura had a subpar start to the day but, like Karjakin, finished strong with wins in the last three games. His most important victory was against So in the last round, which blew the tournament wide open for the field. He is now in clear fifth place and three points behind the leader, but still has a realistic chance of winning the event or at least finishing in the top three.

The shocking results of the day were from Caruana and Mamedyarov who scored 2.5 and 3 points respectively. Anish Giri still finds himself in the bottom of the standings after scoring 4 points today due to his poor performance in the rapid. Viswanathan Anand and Alexander Grischuk both scored 5 points today but are too far behind the leader to be in contention for the title.

Arkady Dvorkovich to run for the post of FIDE President

Fri, 06/15/2018 - 16:26

Chairman of the organizing committee of the FIFA World Cup 2018 Arkady Dvorkovich told RIA Novosti that he will run for the post of FIDE President.

“After consulting with the country’s leadership, the Russian Chess Federation and the international chess community, I decided to nominate myself for the post of FIDE President,” Arkady Dvorkovich said. – “The motive for this decision is the current situation in the chess world. Obviously, FIDE needs development. I am quite familiar with the situation and have the necessary competencies to help FIDE.”

Dvorkovich also said that in the near future he will announce the composition of the team, the so-called “presidential ticket”.

Dvorkovich held senior positions in the Russian Chess Federation and was chairman of the organizing committee of the 2014 World Chess Championship Match in Sochi. Dvorkovich was Deputy Prime Minister in Dmitry Medvedev’s Cabinet from 2012 until 2018.

FIDE Deputy President and candidate for the post of FIDE President Georgios Makropoulos immediately reacted on Twitter: “It is official. Arkady Dvorkovich is running, Kirsan and Glen Stark are out :)”

Since chessdom.com revealed the #KirsanGate, a scandal when a fake person Glen Stark was added to Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s ticket, it was expected that the Russian Chess Federation would seek another candidate and force Mr Ilyumzhinov to withdraw his candidacy.

President of the Russian Chess Federation Andrei Filatov commented: “The fact that Arkady Vladimirovich Dvorkovich decided to run for FIDE presidency is a joyful and pleasant news for us.”

US Olympic Teams Set: “I Like Our Chances to Repeat”

Thu, 06/14/2018 - 08:57

The 2018 US Olympic teams are set, with a formidable Open squad featuring three of the top ten players in the World, including World Championship Challenger Fabiano Caruana. Two years ago, the team captured gold medals in Baku, for the first time since 1976. Team captain IM John Donaldson told US Chess:

I like the U.S. team’s chances of being only the second country besides Armenia to repeat as champions in the post-Kasparov era. It won’t be easy as Russia and China will also field teams with similar average ratings to the U.S. and India (with Anand), Azerbaijan and Ukraine will be over 2700 average rating per board. It’s really great Fabiano is back again heading the team. The Olympiad should be the perfect final tune-up before the World Championship.

It also helps our chances that we have the entire team back from 2016 and Sam Shankland has recently made a huge leap forward.

The 2018 Olympiad will take place in Batumi, Georgia from September 23-October 6. Donaldson pointed out that the, “The U.S. has done well in team tournaments in the Caucasus of late finishing equal fourth (without our big three) in the 2015 World Team Championship in Armenia and winning the Olympiad two years ago in Baku.”

Melikset Khachiyan will captain the Women’s team, and he told US Chess that he is thrilled and optimistic about our chances, even though US Women’s Champion Nazi Paikidze will not play. He had glowing things to say about all team-members. “Anna and Irina have tremendous experience. The most difficult job will be on their shoulders, to hold the top boards. Tatev is an important striker- she needs to be in good form and Sabina is a natural born leader and fighter.” As for youngster Jennifer Yu, Melik called her “an amazing talent with no fear.”

Your Next Move Grand Chess Tour Rapid Day 2 Recap

Wed, 06/13/2018 - 21:25

Day two of Your Next Move was all about Wesley So, as the American keeps showing excellent form and has extended his lead to two points. Levon Aronian had a strong showing and is the next closest to the leader. He is one win away from catching So and is a full point ahead of the trio of Karjakin, Mamedyarov and Vachier-Lagrave. Tomorrow is the final day of the rapid portion and Wesley So is en route to repeat his last year’s result.

Round 4

Wesley So started the day off strong with a tactical sequence that won a pawn against Anish Giri. He went on to convert the material advantage in the endgame without any trouble. In the all American match up, Fabiano Caruana emerged victorious due to his superior pawn structure as Hikaru Nakamura was unable to find counterplay. Sergey Karjakin and Levon Aronian entered the day a full point behind the leader but failed to keep pace as they drew Viswanathan Anand and Shakriyar Mamedyarov respectively. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave continued his draw streak with another peaceful result against Alexander Grischuk..

Round 5

Wesley So continued his winning streak with a victory against Grischuk after his king marched to his opponent’s queenside and collected all the pawns. Levon Aronian inched a bit closer to the winner with a win over Anish Giri in an endgame where his queen and two pawns overpowered his opponent’s two rooks. Anand’s knight pair overpowered Caruana’s knight and bishop pair and lead him to victory in an instructive endgame. Karjakin had a miracle save in a completely lost endgame against Mamedyarov when he managed to enter a rook against rook and a bishop endgame. The Russian managed to escape unscathed after his opponent missed many winning chances. Vachier-Lagrave had a very interesting piece sacrifice against Nakamura but settled for a draw with a threefold repetition.

Round 6

The match up of the round was between So and Aronian. The American had no difficulty drawing the game and thus maintaining the two-point lead. Vachier-Lagrave and Mamedyarov moved up in the rankings and are now in a tie for third place with a point behind Aronian after their wins against Anand and Caruana respectively. Karjakin is also tied with the duo for third place after his quick and sound draw against Giri. Nakamura defeated Grischuk in a rook endgame after the Russian made a crucial blunder at the last moment.

Your Next Move Grand Chess Tour Rapid Day 1 Recap

Tue, 06/12/2018 - 21:41

Your Next Move Grand Chess Tour
Rapid Day 1 Recap
by Tatev Abrahamyan

The first leg of the 2018 Grand Chess Tour, Your Next Move, kicked off in Lueven, Belgium today with three rapid games. After three rounds, Wesley So emerged as a clear leader with two wins and one draw. Interestingly enough, last year the American won the rapid portion of Leuven. Levon Aronian and Sergey Karjakin are trailing the leader with one point. The shockers of the round were current World Rapid Champion Viswanathan Anand and World Championship challenger Fabiano Caruana’s results, both of whom only scored one point.

Round 1

Wesley So started the day with a win over his countryman Fabiano Caruana after outplaying him in an opposite color bishop middlegame. The quiet London System turned wild in the game between Hikaru Nakamura vs Anish Giri when the former lost the right to castle early on in the game. The tactics were favorable for Nakamura, when he won the bishop pair for the rook and eventually converted the advantage. Viswanathan Anand sacrificed a pawn in the opening against Shakriyar Mamedyarov but found himself under attack after a beautiful bishop sacrifice by the Azeri grandmaster; the many pawns in the endgame overwhelmed the former World Champion’s extra knight. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave vs Sergey Karjakin and Grischuk vs Aronian both ended in a draw.

Round 2
This was the bloodiest round of the day. Wesley So won his second game in a row in a queen ending against Shakriyar Mamedyarov. Alexander Grischuk failed to find a simple tactic which would have consequently won a piece and instead lost the game to Sergey Karjakin. Levon Aronian’s rook and a knight proved to be stronger than Hikaru Nakamura’s queen, as the duo captured all the pawns on the kingside. Nakamura did not find a perpetual in time scramble and lost after his opponent queened his corner pawn. Anish Giri bounced back after his loss with a win over Viswanathan Anand after winning a pawn in the middlegame and converting in the rook endgame without much resistance from his opponent . Fabiano Caruana had a great advantage against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave but let it slip and had to settle for a draw.

Round 3
Fabiano Caruana suffered his second loss of the day after not withstanding the pressure put on by Alexander Grischuk in the opening. Caruana never managed to even fully develop his pieces in the opening and found himself in a helpless position soon. The surprising twist of the round was Shakriyar Mamedyarov drawing Anish Giri with a threefold repetition after failing to find a winning rook sacrifice. Hikaru Nakamura once again found himself on the strong side of a queen against rook, a bishop imbalance against Sergey Karjakin, but neither side could make any progress. The rook endgames in Maxime Vachier-Lagrave vs Wesley So and Viswanathan Anand vs Levon Aronian ended in a draw.

The Your Next Move Grand Chess Tour is

Sun, 06/10/2018 - 23:33

The Your Next Move Grand Chess Tour is being held in the historic Town Hall of Leuven, Belgium from 12-16 June. The first stage of the 2018 Grand Chess Tour sees Caruana, Nakamura, So, MVL, Anand, Aronian, Grischuk, Mamedyarov, Karjakin and wild card Giri compete for a $150,000 prize fund. 2017 saw World Champion Magnus Carlsen ease to a comfortable victory but there will definitely be a new champion this year as Magnus is not returning to defend his title.
9 rounds of rapid chess (25 minutes with a 10-second delay) are played on the first 3 days, with wins worth 2 points. 18 rounds of blitz (5 minutes with a 3-second delay) follow on the final 2 days, with wins worth 1 point. The event is sponsored by Your Next Move, a non-profit organisation promoting chess as an educational tool.

Live games with analysis will be provided daily with the best chess software competing in the Top Chess Engine Championship – Komodo, Houdini, and Stockfish.
