Stunning comeback for Harikrishna
Kosteniuk and Hort clinch home Chess960 world titles!
17.08.2006 - Harikrishna-Naiditsch 4,5-3,5
What a comeback for Pentala “Hari” Harikrischna! After three losses on the first day and, his opponent Arkadi Naiditsch just needed one more point on the second day to become the first junior Chess960 world champion. However, the 20-year old Indian, born in Andhra Pradesh, showed amazing fighting spirit and managed to win four games in a row, beating Germany´s number one 4,5-3,5. And what a dramatic finale for young Arkadi! In the last and decisive game of the day, Naiditsch lost on time! In a very promising position the 20-year old Naiditsch missed a few opportunities to decide the game. Harikrishna told your press officer in the morning that he wanted to concentrate on the FiNet Open, but never thought that he would win four games in a row. “The last game of the day was very bad. I still don´t know how I won that one!” And Naiditsch agreed: “I had a clear advantage in the last game, and I had also a good position in the first game to decide the match in an early stage. Games number two and three were deserved wins for Pentala. I will play my best chess in the FiNet Open and the Ordix Open and will try to fight back, although I am dissapointed after this day”. more...

Interview: Wolfgang Grenke regards involvement with Chess Classic Mainz as a profitable investment for his leasing company
31.07.2005 - In Germany, nobody spends more money on chess than Grenke Leasing AG.

CEO Wolfgang Grenke, who supports one of the top teams in the German Bundesliga, the OSC Baden-Baden, will now also support the Chess Classic Mainz. The market leader in the leasing business in Germany donates up to Euro 25.000 and will be the new title sponsor for the rapid chess World Championship match between Viswanathan Anand (India) and Alexander Grischuk (Russia).
