  • The key game of Round 5 of Baku Open finished decisively. Alexey Dreev defeated the leader Nidjat Mamedov. Azerbaijani GM's decision to sacrifice a pawn after the opening (15...Nc6?) was inaccurate and brought him only problems. Another mistake was 19...Nb8? which led to a lost position, Dreev didn't give his opponent a chance to survival.

  • Two Azerbaijani players faced each other in Round 4 of Baku Open: Nidjat Mamedov, who has nicely defeated Emil Sutovsky yesterday, was white against Vugar Rasulov. The game followed theory for a while, but then Mamedov deviated from the well known line which has made Rasulov's position hard immediately.  

    MAMEDOV - RASULOV

  • Sergey Zhigalko grabbed sole lead at Baku Open after Round 6. He defeated Alexey Dreev as white.

  • Fourth Round game of the World Team Championship between Grischuk and Nidjat Mamedov was way interesting and original. They have fully "reproduced" Game 8 of the world title match Carlsen - Anand. They changed last two moves (which changed nothing) and immediately after 30th move agreed on a draw. This is how they avoided the rule of no draws before 30th move.   

  • The hero of the finish in Baku was Alexander Grischuk who won his last three games and went from his disastrous 3 out of 8 to sharing the 3rd place.

  • Bela Khotenashvili to lead the Women's Grand Prix Series

  • 5 games out of 6 have been drawn quite quickly in the crucial, 11th round of the 1st FIDE Grand Prix 2014/15 tournament in Baku. The only victory of the round has been scored by Alexander Grischuk who outplayed Leinier Dominguez in the 40-moves game which ended last. It was the 4th loss in a row for the Cuban GM and the third win in a row for Alexander.

  • The first stage of the Women's Grand Prix 2013-2014 will be finished tomorrow. In the penultimate round luck was on Georgian players' side: Nana Dzagnidze beat Ju Wenjun, Bela Khotenashvili defeated Kateryna Lahno. The round turned out to be especially unpleasant for Lahno who got almost lost position shortly after the opening.

  • After defeating Magnus Carlsen in the penultimate round of the super tournament taking place in Stavanger, Wang Hao of China upset the reigning World Champion Vishy Anand. The outcome of the game was decided between 14th and 16th moves when Anand was forced to give away his queen without considerable compensation. The stiff resistance didn't help Indian to hold.

  • The traditional festival is underway in Hoogeveen, the Netherlands. The main competition gathered four GMs: Michael Adams, Wesley So, Loek van Wely and Robin van Kampen. 

    In Round 1 more experienced van Wely and Adams lost against So and van Kampen respectively. The second round games finished peacefully.
