  • World Cup: Round 3 completed in Khanty-Mansiysk

    International Chess Federation - FIDE Sep 18, 2019 | 23:39 P

    World Cup: Round 3 completed in Khanty-Mansiysk The Round 3 tiebreaks were played on September 18.Three matches were decided in rapid games. Peter Svidler (Russia) proved his strength by stopping Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu (Germany). In the first game, the Russian GM had no particular problems equalizing with black, whereas in the second encounter he seamlessly carried out a pawn-roller on the queenside."I can't say that this World Cup goes that smooth for me, but I am still participating in it, which can’t be considered anything but positive," commented Svidler, who won this competition in 2011 and was very close to the second title in 2015.Ding Liren (China) won both games against Alireza Firouzja (Iran). First, the Chinese GM demonstrated an excellent technique in a drawish rook endgame, and then refuted Alireza’s attempts to get something going in a clinical fashion.  Yu Yangyi (China) beat his compatriot Wei Yi.Other matches took more time.The 18-year-old American Jeffrey Xiong sensationally defeated the second seed player of the tournament, Anish Giri (Netherlands). The match was a very exciting affair, with Xiong narrowly escaping on a couple of occasions. Finally, after several fighting draws Jeffrey won the second 10-minute game and the match. The young American was very humble after his triumph: “In[…]

  • World Cup: Eight players advanced to the Round 4

    International Chess Federation - FIDE Sep 17, 2019 | 22:34 P

    World Cup: Eight players advanced to the Round 4 The return games of round 3 of the FIDE World Cup were played on September 17. None of the players who had lost in the first game managed to level the score today.The tournament’s sensation Kirill Alekseenko (Russia) defeated the higher-rated Pentala Harikrishna (India) for the second time in a row. The Indian GM sacrificed the knight for two black central paws transposing into an unbalanced position that very well suited his aggressive agenda. However, in the ensuing complications, Kirill was up to the challenge. The Russian GM timely sacrificed an exchange and got excellent compensation in the form of two bishops and the advanced pawn on c3. One inaccuracy from Pentala shortly thereafter was enough to dash his hopes to advance into the next round.Alexander Grischuk (Russia) also won both games against Xu Xiangyu (China). In their second encounter, he obtained a very comfortable position with substantial space advantage and gradually strangulated his opponent.Levon Aronian scored a very important victory over Maxim Matlakov that paved his way into the fourth round. As the Armenian GM pointed out in his post-game interview, Maxim committed a blunder with 17.Nh5, most likely missing that after 18.d5 Nb8 19.Rxe5 Nd7 Black’s knight quickly[…]

  • 25 Years of The Week in Chess - 25

    The Week in Chess Sep 17, 2019 | 13:24 P

    I am celebrating the 25th Anniversary of The Week in Chess. The first issue appeared on Saturday 17th September 1994 and was posted to the newsgroup rec.games.chess. In the article below I talk about the anniversary, thanking a few of the many people who have helped over the years and list all the issues so far. I would also like you to consider donating if you find the work I do useful to you. Donations have been a key part of supporting the website. I'm very pleased - and amazed - to have made it to 25 years. I have the appetite to continue on and develop for at least a few more years yet. There is also a nice article about the anniversary by Peter Doggers on chess.com.

  • Ju Wenjun emerges sole leader at the Women's Grand Prix

    International Chess Federation - FIDE Sep 17, 2019 | 02:58 P

    Ju Wenjun emerges sole leader at the Women's Grand Prix The game between Ju Wenjun (2576) Alina Kashlinskaya (2487) was a French Winawer with 7. Qg4 Kf8. The World Champion wasted no time on launching the attack on the kingside, as it is the standard plan in this variation. Alina looked for counterplay on the queenside, grabbed two pawns, and tried to create some threats, but in the end, she had to sacrifice her queen for minor pieces. It was an ingenious try, but the main problem for the Russian player was that her h8 rook was trapped for most of the game and came into play when it was already too late. Ju Wenjun played the attack with precision and scored a point that takes her to the top of the table.Valentina Gunina (2502) drops from the co-leadership, after losing against Elisabeth Paethz (2479). Gunina run into the home preparation of Paehtz in the Two Knights Variation of the Caro-Kann Defense, where the German IM sacrificed a pawn on move 11 in order to open lines. When Valentina was starting to be short of time, Paehtz added more fuel to the fire with an exchange sacrifice that, even if not completely correct according to the engines, it was a[…]
