Ivanchuk in a bad mood or how he won the Latvian Railway Open
Ivanchuk had some problems against Van Wely as well, but still luck was in his side. You may look some of his games on http://www.theweekinchess.com/chessnews/events/latvian-railway-rapid-open-2014 especially the game against Malkhov the other rating favorite who took the second place. All results you may find on http://www.chess-results.com/tnr122844.aspx?lan=1
My tournament went in wrong way after this crucial game against Sergei Zhigalko from Belorussia.
Finally I also refused too many draw offers and finished with 50%. I had few nice games still. I manage to win against former women's World champion Zhu Chen from China who lives now in Qatar.
There is World rapid and blitz championship in June in Dubai and most likely Ivanchuk is going to be one of the favorites, last year Kariakin won the event and he was successfull also in Khanty Mansisk where he took second place after Anand. Anyway good luck to Ivanchuk and it is interesting to follow his achievments.
