This year the ICC Open Blitz Tournament has changed owner!

GM Alexander Grischuk

The first three editions were won by GM Hikaru Nakamura; this year another great player grabbed the title: GM Alexander Grischuk from Russia.

The Open was an amazing event, with many strong GMs participating, and a plethora of IMs and FMs. Last, but surely not least, the hundreds of ICCers who measured themselves against the tough guys!

We have had LIVE commentary for the finals!  IM Christof "Chessexplained" Sielecki, a regular content contributor for the ICC, went over the games live on ICCTV, with a nice crowd watching and kibitzing. Here is the video!

“Do you want to reach the HIGHEST chess goals?”

“Do you want to become not just a strong player, but an EXTREMELY strong one?”

“Then use “Your Winning Plan” –
the most direct way for a chess success!”

What is the main factor of success in chess?

Chess is inherently a strategic game. That’s why strategic skills are the most important thing in chess. They allow you to understand what you should do in any position. Chess players usually call it “a chess understanding”.

In fact it is not so difficult to study some opening lines or theoretical endgame positions. Players experience biggest problems in complex middlegame positions, when they are not sure what to do.

Please, remember the strong chess players you know. How do they win against weaker players? They create complex strategic positions and gradually overplay an opponent. They use their better chess understanding.
