Two rounds have been played. Yesterday, the world number seven coped easily with Sergey Volkov. 

SO - VOLKOV

The Russian's beloved French Defence has gone wrong somehow. The position is strictly new, but it is similar to theoretical ones, because only 13 moves have been played and very similar things have been seen in other variations. Volkov has just unwisely played 13...g6?, which his opponent immediately exploits.
14.f5! gxf5 (Probably there were better defensive chances after 14...Ne7 15.fxe6 fxe6, not weakening the kingside so much and retaining the possibility of castling) 15.Bxf5 Bxf2+ 16.Rxf2 Na5 17.Qh6 d4? (Black himself provokes the collapse in a difficult position. It was time to run with the king: 17...Kd8 etc.) 18.Ne4 exf5 19.Nd6+ Kd8 20.Nxf7+ Kc7 21.e6 Bxf3 22.Qf4+ Kb7 23.exd7 1-0

  • The rivalry between Russia and China continues. It is not ten days since the end of the traditional annual training match between the men and women of the two countries, and now the two teams are again battling each other. But this time with different teams and a very unusual format. 

  • 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 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.

  • Nona wins the European Women's Club Cup

  • Igor Kovalenko won the Najdorf Memorial and passed 2700

  • The fourth game of the Shakhriyar Mamedyarov - Markus Ragger match in Vienna ended in a draw, while the next fight was decisive: opting for the Ruy Lopez Exchange for the third time, the Azeri GM played a surprising line once again, this time without success. His 6.Re1!? had been played only a few times in amateur games. Yet, it's not the opening that decided the outcome.

  • The hero of the Russian Team Chess Championship GM Alexander Grischuk who scored 5/6 on board two gave a commentary to our website.

  • In Zeeland, the Hogeschool Zeeland tournament has ended. Three rounds before the end, the rating favourite Baadur Jobava was half a point behind the leading group, but at the decisive stage of the tournament, the Georgian GM did not drop even half a point. Indeed, he dropped only one point throughout the event and finished in clear first place.
