Mar 8, 2015, 12:19 PM |
Chucky won the tournament with 9/11 score. He did not lose any game. He played extremely precise and fast. I got your cruosity.Undecided He played King's Gambit against Sergey Karjakin. Now I have your attention. Surprised He is 46 years old and #4 rapid player in our solar system with 2834 ELO(Carlsen: 2855; Nakamura: 2850; Grischuk: 2846). 
First 5 rounds were played yesterday. Click here for Ivanchuk games of Day 1. With today's 6 more rounds total 11 round tournament is over. It was a Swiss System pairing of 122 people. The strongest ones were Karjakin, Gelfand, Rapport, Mamedyarov, Tomashevsky, Malakhov, Morozevich, and Fedoseev. Also 65-year old Evgeny Sveshnikov played and got 6/11. Does that name ring a bell? (Sicilian Defense Sveshnikov Variation:  1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 6.Ndb5 d6)
