Evil Kid in Serbia. By GM Alex Yermolinsky

Added on 01.05.2016

GM Alex Yermolinsky shares with us his recent chess adventure in Belgrade, Serbia. After a long absence from European chess scene I made a trip to Serbia to play in the traditional Belgrade Trophy open tournament over this past Thanksgiving. The Belgrade Trophy is rarely held in the Capital of Serbia proper, but rather in satellite towns. In the years past it was held in Obrenovac, but after the floods of May 2014 the venue was lost, and for the 2015 edition it moved to a sports and culture...Full Story

Game Of the Week - 400 and counting!

Added on 10.30.2015

Wesley So vs. Liren Ding - Bilbao Masters Final 2015 At the start of the Bilbao Masters, two young players with short surnames and long futures contested a sharp King's Indian. Wesley So and Ding Liren are ambitious players that can handle the kill-or-be-killed nature of that opening. Both players sacrificed material at various points, leading to instructive moments about the relative value of pieces.   400 and counting!

  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.
