FIDE GP Tashkent 2014

Added on 10.17.2014

From worst to first! Dmitry Andreikin, who struggled in Baku only three weeks ago, finishing second last, won the second stage of the Grand Prix in Tashkent. Last round was very interesting, especially because both Nakamura and Mamedyarov could have taken the lead, had they won their games. The Azeri and the American drew two hard-fought games, and Andreikin - also with a draw - kept the lead. Caruana won his game against Jakovenko, to land in third place - shared with Karjakin, Vachier-Lagrave...Full Story

FIDE GP Baku 2014

Added on 09.25.2014

The FIDE cycle to determine who will be in the Candidate Tournament in 2015 starts in Baku, Azerbaijan. The first three rounds were quite interesting.

2nd Sinquefield Cup

Added on 08.15.2014

The Caruana Express Two historical facts characterized what has been called the strongest tournament ever - and it actually was, rating-wise: a 22 year old from Brooklyn not only finished undefeated, but scored an impressive +7 out of 10 rounds. Fabiano Caruana, with his gentle smile and his Italian flag, had an amazing run, that reminds closely what Carlsen did in Nanjing 5 years ago. Back then Carlsen was younger than Caruana, and it was the true break through that projected the Norwegian...Full Story
