America’s Rising Chess Stars Converge in Saint Louis

Wed, 07/11/2018 - 11:35

The skilled and competitive new generation of chess talent will compete for the U.S. Junior and U.S. Girls’ Junior Chess Championship titles at the Saint Louis Chess Club from July 11-21, 2018.

The two 10-player fields are filled with young prodigies who are ready to test their mettle in 9 rounds of classical chess. For many of these players, the tournament will serve as a stepping stone to achieving such lofty goals as the Grandmaster titles, elite player status, and potentially World Championship competitions.

This year’s tournament includes an exciting opponent in the 2018 Junior field, as 16-year-old WIM Annie Wang will be competing against all male opponents. She secured the wildcard position in the tournament due to her spectacular second place finish against IM Nazi Paikidze during the playoff of the 2018 U.S. Women’s Chess Championship in April.

Wang will be competing for the prize fund of more than $20,000 and a coveted spot in the 2019 U.S. Chess Championship, where she would compete against America’s big three: GM Wesley So, GM Hikaru Nakamura, and world championship contender, GM Fabiano Caruana. Alongside her in the field will be other talented juniors, including previous champions GM Akshat Chandra and defending champion GM Awonder Liang.

The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis (CCSCSL)

“The U.S. Junior Championships are always a great opportunity for us to see what the future of chess looks like,” says Executive Director Tony Rich. “With Annie Wang as the wildcard and all the other young, yet seasoned players, the future of American chess is brighter than ever.”

The U.S. Girls’ Junior section also promises to offer exciting battles with previous U.S. Women’s Championship players FM Maggie Feng, WIM Emily Nguyen, and WIM Jennifer Yu.

For many of these players, the tournament is an opportunity to improve their rating and prepare for future major tournaments. Although this tournament is fairly new, it has produced many players who have gone on to shine at major national and international tournaments, while others have taken the skills learned from chess to study at elite universities like Agata Bykovtsev at MIT. Along with winning the title, players will be up for the chance to win a piece of the more than $10,000 prize fund.

Covering all the action will be the expert commentary team of WGM Tatev Abrahamyan and GM Robert Hess. The team will be providing game analysis daily starting at 1 p.m.

RCF President Andrei Filatov opens winery in France

Wed, 07/11/2018 - 11:29

A true global celebrity, architect of the Arab World Institute in Paris and the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Frenchman Jean Nouvel presented the Chateau la Grace Dieu des Prieurs reconstruction project, his latest project in Saint-Emilion (France).

Located in one of France’s most ancient wine-growing areas, the historic vineyard La Grace Dieu Des Prieurs underwent a major transformation under close supervision of Jean Nouvel. The architect, who had spent his childhood next to Saint-Emilion, managed to create a unique project bridging French winemaking traditions, modern technology and Russian art, and turning the chateau into a unique art site.

«Each project has a cultural component, which becomes particularly evident in historical places, said Jean Nouvel while presenting the project. By adding elements of modernism, we create something new, while at the same time preserving cultural traditions. Architecture does not exist by itself, it is not created by an architect out of nothing; it is born from the architect’s relationship with the surrounding world. This project was created to highlight each stage of operation of the winery throughout its life, and with each element I attempted to pay tribute to winemaking, Russian art and French traditions.»

The grand opening of Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs gathered eminent guests in Saint-Emilion, among them the Russian ambassador to France Alexei Meshkov, the Mayor of Saint-Emilion Bernard Lauret, the Abbot of Saint-Emilion Abbey Emeric de Roziere, winemakers Louis and Francois Mitjavile, and Director of the Art Russe Foundation Rena Lavery. The event was attended by Art Russe Saint-Emilion Grand Cru partners and distributors, leading French and international wine critics, and numerous representatives of the Russian and foreign media. The highlight of the ceremony was a concert of the renowned pianist Nikolai Lugansky, who performed works by Achille-Claude Debussy and Sergei Rachmaninov.

Also in attendance were owners of other Saint Emilion wineries, including Chateau Aurage, Chateau Candale, Chateau Franc Grace Dieu, Chateau La Commanderie, Chateau La Grace Dieu les Menuts, Chateau Milens, Chateau Naulet, Chateau Pindefleurs, Chateau Tertre Roteboeuf, Chateau Quintus, Clos Dubreuil and others.

The Mayor of Saint-Emilion Bernard Lauret highly appreciated the transformation project: «This is Jean Nouvel’s second project in Saint-Emilion, and I very much hope to see other projects of the great architect in our region. From the very beginning the project was very interesting and ambitious. Together we solved all the challenges that arose along the way, and the admirable result makes us proud.»

«I wish to thank everyone for the work done, said Russian Ambassador to France Alexei Meshkov. This is a large-scale project that has created many links, namely between the French soil, Russian business and wine, which is now sold all over the world. Such projects are particularly significant now, when the relations between Russia and France are entering a new phase.»

Chateau La Grace Dieu Des Prieurs was founded in 1885 and today is surrounded by such wine estates as Laroze, Chateau Figeac, La Dominique and Cheval Blanc. Its wine is bottled under the name La Grace Dieu Des Prieurs since 1958, and has always enjoyed a good reputation among connoisseurs of Bordeaux. In recent decades, however, the chateau found itself in dire need of reconstruction and process modernization. In 2014-2017, the chateau underwent a large-scale transformation aimed at preserving French winemaking traditions, while introducing innovations to achieve the highest quality of wine. To improve the winemaking process, the renowned consultant Louis Mitjavile was invited. The modernization project was carried out under the supervision of the Chateau Director Laurent Prosperi.

Jean Nouvel developed the architectural redesign project, with the overarching objective to preserve and highlight historicity of the place, while bringing modernity to the production process and the architectural ensemble. The new gravitational cellar now boasts not only the most advanced equipment, but is also a magnificent piece of modern design: the cylindrical building resembles a fermentation tank, whose wall is decorated with a fresco depicting all stages of the winemaking process. Jean Nouvel’s vision allowed transforming the chateau in Saint-Emilion into a genuine piece of art.

The new owners did not limit themselves to architectural and technological transformations. In 2017, Chateau la Grace Dieu des Prieurs and the Art Russe Foundation, which owns one of the largest collections of Russian and Soviet art of the late 19th and 20th centuries, signed an agreement under which the Art Russe brand and reproductions of paintings from its collection will be made available annually to the chateau, to design grand cru wine labels. The choice of artworks is driven by the objective to showcase a variety of trends in Russian art. Today, Art Russe Grand Cru labels display reproductions of works of Ilya Repin, Viktor Vasnetsov, Mikhail Vrubel, Valentin Serov, Nicholas Roerich, Nikolai Fechin, Alexander Gerasimov, Viktor Popkov, Geliy Korzhev and other Russian and Soviet artists.

«For us, the project bridging the art of winemaking and the art of painting represents an opportunity to expand the audience for the programs of the Art Russe Foundation and raise awareness of Russian art in a new format. Thanks to the project, many people in Russia and around the world have discovered great French wine, and, through wine, have discovered Russian art, said Andrey Filatov, founder of the Art Russe Foundation and owner of Chateau la Grace Dieu des Prieurs.

Tiviakov and Peng are the winners at the Dutch Championships

Mon, 07/09/2018 - 15:17

The Dutch Championship was an 8-player round-robin tournament taking place from 2-8 July 2018 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

After six rounds, Sergey Tiviakov has already secured the title of Dutch Champion Chess 2018. By a convincing victory over Loek van Wely, he was 5 out of 6 and can no longer be overtaken by the competition. His victory is surprising because he had not even placed himself for this edition. It was only a week before the tournament that he was called up as a reserve after the fall of Benjamin Bok. He was in Russia at the time and had his flight booked to be in the Netherlands on time.

In 2006 and 2007 he already won the title Champion of the Netherlands twice, but now eleven years later he takes his third title. Because of this, he comes to the same level with Hein Donner.
GM Sergey Tiviakov won the Netherlands Championship with 5.5 points out of 7. Second is GM L’Ami, Erwin with 4 points and third is GM Van Foreest, Jorden with 4 points also. The defending and 8-time champion Van Wely have made only 2/7.

The Dutch Championships Women was decided in favor of Zhaoqin Peng: she won with white convincingly from Anne Haast, who therefore dropped to fourth place. Tea Lanchava won with black from Iozefina Paulet and seized second place with 5,5 points. Rosa Ratsma also played an excellent tournament, her victory over Mariska de Mie gives her a nice third place with 5 points. Lisa Hortensius and Maaike Keetman played the longest game of the day, but did not get any further than a draw.
GM Peng Zhaoqin at age 50 won her 14th Dutch Women Championship with 6 points out of 7. She was 3-time Chinese Women Champion (1987.1990,1993).
