World Chess Cup 2015

Added on 09.05.2015

  SERGEY KARJAKIN wins the World Cup 2015! Next time someone tells you that chess is a boring game, tell them to go check the final games of the FIDE World Cup 2015. Ten decisive games in a row. Probably a record. What an amazing finish! After Karjakin's great comeback in the last two games with "regular" time control, today it's just been unbelievable. Blunders everywhere, games thrown away, strokes of absolute genius, everything you'd never expect to see in a match between two of the best...Full Story

Sinquefield Cup 2015

Added on 08.11.2015

  Levon Aronian wins the 3rd Sinquefield Cup! Levon Aronian won convincingly - with 6 points out of 9 rounds - the 3rd Sinquefield Cup, incidentally beating the three US musketeers Nakamura, Caruana and So. It is a pleasure to see the kind and gentlemanly Levon back wearing the crown of such an important and uber-strong event, after his last great victory at the Tata Steel 2014. Aronian went into last round with a full point advantage, which made the final outcome quite predictable. In his...Full Story

Dortmund 2015

Added on 06.26.2015

Congratulations to GM Fabiano Caruana! Fifth win and final victory for the American prodigal son, Fabiano Caruana. In a spectacular game against his direct rival for the success in Dortmund - the Romanian GM playing for Germany Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu, Fabiano finished the tournament with an amazing 5.5/7. Nisipeanu opened with the Evans Gambit(!), an ancient, romantic and not-much used opening and Caruana was able to come out of the opening with a decent position. The tactics at the end was...Full Story

Norway Chess Tournament 2015

Added on 06.02.2015

  Topalov is the new King of Norway! In a day saddened by the news about the great Walter Browne passing away in the night, the tournament was decided in less than one hour. 17 moves. That is all it took to end the 3rd Norway Chess. Topalov and Anand drew uneventfully, and Topalov is now the new King of Norway. Nakamura beat convincingly Aronian, whose tournament was not the best he's ever played. The Norwegian derby saw the most unexpected outcome: Hammer outplayed Carlsen, to get his...Full Story

Gashimov Memorial 2015

Added on 04.12.2015

Magnus Carlsen wins the 2nd Gashimov Memorial, defending the title he had won last year. Magnus entered last round with half a point of advantage over Vishy Anand, and he set up a game with Mamedov that could have led to a draw, although we all know how subtle Magnus can be in endgames with even a very slight advantage. Mamedov felt the pressure - and who doesn't, playing Magnus? - and blundered horribly, resigning on the spot. Anand played a good game against Fabiano Caruana, ended in a draw....Full Story

U.S. Chess Championship 2015 - countdown!

Added on 03.26.2015

  HIKARU NAKAMURA is the 2015 US Champion! Gibraltar, Zurich and now the US Championship. So far, it's been Hikaru's year. Hikaru conquered the US Championship by winning round 11 against Alexander Onishuk, in a pretty amazing way. The game looked drawn, and everyone knows how solid Onischuk is in such positions. But the old lion miscalculated in a drawish endgame, and nobody can allow himself that when playing the number 3 in the world. Robson did his part, beating Timur Gareev in a crazy...Full Story

The third FIDE Grand Prix is going to take place in Tbilisi, Georgia from February 15 to 27. The two leaders after the first two tournaments, Caruana and Nakamura,  will not play in Georgia - they are playing in Zurich - but the GP presents several very strong players: Grischuk, Giri, Vachier-Lagrave, Mamedyarov, Svidler, Andreikin, Jakovenko, Radjabov, Dominguez, Tomashevsky, Kasimdzhanov and Jobava. The latter is the only player whose rating is not over 2700, which gives an idea of how...Full Story

GRENKE Chess Classic 2015

Added on 01.31.2015

It's him again! Magnus Carlsen won the Grenke Classic 2015. Congratulations to the World Champion! In the last round Carlsen and Naiditsch drew their game, and went on to play tiebreak games. But it wasn't exactly a walk in the park for the super-Norwegian, who had to face a very pugnacious Arkadij Naiditsch in the playoffs. It was a rollecoaster: Magnus won the first of the two Rapid games (10+2) and most everyone at that point was quite sure it was going to be a matter of routine for the...Full Story
