Chinese Solo in Australia: 10.5 out of 11

Время публикации: 11.01.2015 14:42 | Последнее обновление: 11.01.2015 15:07

Chinese players continue to demolish opens all over the world. We've already reported on Zhao Jun's big success, and now the time has come again for an open tournament to be totally dominated by a Chinese GM: Ni Hua has left no chance whatsoever to his rivals in the Australian Open which has finished today in the suburb of Sydney.

Even though Ni Hua (2689) had been considered the obvious favorite (unlike Zhao Jun in Hastings), his final 10.5 out of 11 are absolutely amazing.

After 7 initial wins in a row, Ni Hua drew Rustam Khusnutdinov with Black - only to resume his crushing series. The 10th round victory over Australian IM Ly Moulthun in an extremely sharp game has secured his clear first place one round before the finish. This fact, however, didn't make Ni Hua stop, as he defeated another top player of the host country, Bobby Cheng, in conclusion. Thus, the Chinese GM has finished two points and a half (!) ahead of Murtas Kazhgaleyev (Kazakhstan) and the Australian champion Max Illingworth who have tied for the 2nd place.

A group of 9 players has scored 7.5/11, while Anton Smirnov has failed to meet the local fans' expectations with only 7 points. Most likely, his opponents have been already taking him very seriously after the success in Melbourne. Nevertheless, there's little doubt that his further chess growth is only a matter of experience and practice.

  • 3 rounds are over in the Australian Open which is under way in the suburb of Sydney. So far, 6 players have got the perfect score: Ni Hua, Murtas Kazhgaleyev, Eugene Schon, Steven Yap Kim, Gregory Canfell, and the incumbent Australian champion Max Illingworth. A group of 12 players including 5 GMs have 2.5/3 (see complete current standings).

  • The Australian Chess Open is about to start in Sydney. The event is noteworthy for the fact that it has gathered nearly all strongest national players, as well as Chinese GM Ni Hua (2676) and the titled guests from Kazakhstan and Russia. The complete field can be seen at the official website.

  • Today in Danzhou, the sixth annual tournament ended, featuring several top players, two young hopefuls and two well-known foreign guests from Cuba and India, in a round robin event. The tournament will mainly be remembered for one particular game, which has been hailed as the "game of the century". Admittedly, the winner Wei Yi, who produced a whole series of !! moves, won only one other game in the event and finished fourth. 

  • In Pardubice, Czech Republic, the main event was the open tournament A, which had 289 players including 35 GMs. 

    The first two places were occupied by the salient rating favourites - Viktor Laznicka and Sergey Movsesian.

  • In the Russian city of Voronezh, the main event has started at the annual chess festival in memory of Alexander Alekhine. It involves 128 players, including 27 GMs. In the first round of the 9-round event, things went largely in favour of the favourites, as usual, but it was not wholly without shocks. The biggest sensation came on board one, where 13-year old FM Semyon Lomasov from Moscow crushed the top seed Grandmaster Ivan Bukavshin (2647).

  • Two Belarusian individual championships (men's and women's) have come to an end simultaneously in the city of Minsk. Both tournaments were held according to round-robin system, with 12 players in the men's tournament and 10 in the women's.

  • In Nakhchivan, the final round of the Heydar Aliyev Open tournament has just finished. There were several candidates for victory right up to the last day, but all questions were answered by Gadir Guseinov beating Sergey Tiviakov, and Eltaj Safarli overcoming Pouya Idani. As a result, both Azeri grandmasters scored seven points, but Safarli won overall on tie-break.  

    Here are the heroes' games from the live broadcast.

  • The rapid match between Viktor Korchnoi and Wolfgang Uhlmann has come to an end in Zurich as a part of the Zurich Chess Challenge. On the second playing day, the renowned veteran players exchanged victories again, with a difference that both today's games were won by Black. Thus, the final score is equal - 2-2.

    All the games of the match can be replayed below.

  • The fourth game of the Ding Liren - Gelfand match also ended in favour of the Chinese. The overall score of 3-1, over such a short distance, can be regarded as quite substantial, if not crushing. 

  • Just as with Garry Kasparov, Anish Giri has also achieved a personal milestone for the fourth time: he has again won the Dutch Championship. In a round-robin tournament, eight GMs competed for the title, almost all the strongest representatives of the country, excluding Ivan Sokolov. 

    Despite the short diatance, Giri won the title more than convincingly.
