  1. Round 3 at Zurich. Nakamura had Carlsen against the ropes today, but Magnus still managed to scape with the full point. A game worthy of study, no doubt! See full annotations below. Aronian-Gelfand was a draw where not very much happened. Although longer, not much happened in Caruana-Anand either. You can view all games by clicking on the menu above the little board.

  2. It's sad to see Anand losing 2 games in a row. His next tournament will be the candidates and if he scores badly for the rest of the tournament (he still has to play against Carlsen!), I doubt he'll be able to recover psychologically for that event. Vishy had doubts about taking part in it to begin with, although he did confirm that he'd be taking part. Truth be told, Nakamura played a formidable game against him... Meanwhile Carlsen didn't get much out of the opening against Aronian and had to fight for the draw. Gelfand-Nakamura was a very interesting draw. Gelfand seemed a little worse
  3. After his triumph in London, a new event appears in the Norwegian GM´s calendar in January: The 75th Tata Steel Chess Tournament: from 11 to 27 January in Wijk aan Zee. Here's the list of players: GM Carlsen, Magnus NOR GM Aronian, Levon ARM GM Caruana, Fabiano ITA GM Anand, Viswanathan IND GM Karjakin, Sergey RUS GM Nakamura, Hikaru USA GM Wang, Hao CHN GM Leko, Peter HUN GM Giri, Anish NED GM Harikrishna, Pentala IND GM van Wely, Loek NED GM Sokolov, Ivan NED GM L'Ami, Erwin NED GM Hou, Yifan CHN Besides Kramnik, other big names missing are Radj
  4. 22 Year old Norwegian GM Magnus Carlsen has won the IV London classic (his third English title!) with a rather impressive score of 6.5 out of 8, and a performance rating of 2994 (!). This result will push Carlsen's rating to a staggering 2861 (+13.4), the highest ever on the planet!! However, there are some clouds over the horizon: although Magnus result was very impressive indeed, the games were... how would I put it, BORING! not exactly spectacular! He played no less than 7 endgames, some of them were not particularly brilliant and looked rather drawish but he still managed to scrap the f
  5. A cup system for a blitz tournament is as ridiculous as a Tennis Tournament where a player gets knocked out in a 2 games match, but I guess the organisers wanted a bit of publicity... Here's what happened: Biel Exhibition Blitz 2012 Final ----- Bacrot,Etienne 0.5 Nakamura,Hikaru 1.5 Semi-final ---------- Bacrot,Etienne 1.5 Kosteniuk,Alexandra 0.5 Morozevich,Alexander 0.0 Nakamura,Hikaru 2.0 Quarter-final ------------- Bacrot,Etienne 2.0 Carlsen,Magnus 1.0 Kosteniuk,Alexandra 1.5 Wang,Hao 0.5 Morozevich,Alexander 2.0 Pelletier,Yannick 1.0 Harikrishna,Pentala 0.5 Nakamura,Hikar
  6. 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
