  1. This was a really hard fought round. Bologan's creative play was "awarded" with a most undeserved defeat. Giri's opening preparation seemed rather poor and he was soon worse against Wang's convincing play. Carlsen played a Bogo-Indian and came out of the opening quite well (unusual in recent times!). Did he miss a win on move 44? maybe...

  2. Wang grabbed the lead with this, his fourth win. It's kind of sad because Bologan deserved better, the draw being at his reach had he not blundered on move 35. Let's not forget that he didn't have the time that the other players did to prepare against each other, that's an enourmous handicapp at this level...

  3. Only 2 games for this round. (as you know, morozevich withdrew and the game Bologan-Carlsen will be played on Sunday, the rest day) The 2 games are quite interesting. Nakamura played a Polugayevsky variation of the Sicilian, and at one point things looked rather promising for him... Giri played a great game on the white side of a KingĀ“s Indian.

  4. As you probably know by now, GM Morozevich has withdrawn from the Biel Chess Festival. Here's the organising committee. Due to health issues, Alexander Morozevich retired from the Biel Grandmaster Tournament after Round 2. He has been this Wednesday with the organisers of the Festival to a hospital, where a doctor confirmed, with a medical certificate, his inability to go on to play the competition. Alexander Morozevich will travel back to Moscow as soon as possible to recover. The length of his healing process is unknown. After the approval of the players, the organisers could

  6. I've annotated the first 3 games from the Biel tournament. Interesting stuff. Both Giri and Morozevic missed a Queen Sacrifice (time trouble, no doubt). Hao's victory was quite impressive.

  7. The 45th edition of the Biel Tournament begins today in Switzerland. 6 Gms are taking part: Magnus Carlsen (Norway, Elo 2837) Hiraku Nakamura (USA, Elo 2778) Alexander Morozevic (Russia, Elo 2770) Wang Hao (PRC, Elo 2739) Etienne Bracto (France, Elo 2713) Anish Giri (Holland, Elo 2696) The tournament is a double round robin, as it should be!. Giri has just won the Dutch Championship and a few people are expecting him to do well here as well, but how well? His rating is actually a little higher (2710 at present) but FIDE only publishes chess ratings on a monthly basis. By t
