The traditional chess festival "Vidzeme Summer" has taken place in the Latvian town of Limbaži for the fourth time. One of the organizers was Alexei Shirov.


The main tournament was an 11-round Swiss rapid tournament (time control 12+5). The battle for the first place went mainly between two rating favorites - Igor Kovalenko and Alexei Shirov himself. As a result, the organizer finished half a point ahead of his rival. Unlike Kovalenko, Shirov managed not to lose a single game.
