Anand Remains Supreme in Mainz
Anand Wins GrenkeLeasing Rapid Chess World Championship in Close Match
19.08.2007 - Sunday, immediately after the end of the Ordix Open, with 762 participants the world’s biggest rapid chess tournament, the Chess Classic Mainz finished with another highlight: The match for the Grenke Leasing Rapid Chess World Championship between Anand and Aronian. Three days ago the same players had played the final of the FiNet Chess960 World Championship. This was a tense and exciting match, but here even more was at stake: Anand wanted to take revenge for his loss and prove that he is still the world’s best rapid player. Both players also had the coming World Championship in Mexico in mind: Here, both Aronian and Anand are among the favorites and the winner of Mainz would gain a psychological edge over his rival. At the same time both players had to be careful not to reveal too much of their preparation for Mexico. more...

Chess Classic diary of a Grandmaster
Etienne Bacrot provides inside information on his new website
19.08.2007 - You can read loads of stories about the Chess Classic on various Internet websites. We gave you links to the ChessVibes and ChessDom websites, where you can see nice videos about the record-breaking event in Mainz. But there is also a very nice new website from Etienne Bacrot, the French top-grandmaster, who plays many games in Mainz this week. He writes about his performance during the Chess Classic and analyses games on his brand-new website. At the age of 12 Etienne was already an International Master, and was competing on level terms with professionals in France. He came further into the public eye when he qualified for the PCA Intel Grand Prix in Paris where he distinguished himself amongst the world's elite. In March 1997, under the auspices of his trainer Iossif Dorman, he became the youngest ever grandmaster at the age of 14 years and two months.

Anand has chance to take revenge against Aronian
Anand and Aronian to play final of Rapid World Championship
18.08.2007 - Saturday saw the last round of the preliminary of the Grenke Leasing Rapid Chess World Championship. The two best players in the preliminary would qualify for the final, which will be played tomorrow – and most people expected another battle between Anand and Aronian. But maybe Bacrot or Kasimdzhanov would manage an upset? After all, in yesterday’s press conference Kasimdzhanov had declared that he felt his luck had changed after his third round draw against Aronian. However, with only a half point out of three games he would indeed need a lot of luck to turn the tables. But maybe Bacrot would finally show his true mettle and put pressure on Aronian and Anand? Three rounds later all questions were answered. more...

Anand Uses Ruy Lopez to Dominate Rapid Chess
The Grenke Leasing Rapid World Championship Began in Mainz
17.08.2007 - On Friday evening Anand, Aronian, Kasimdzhanov and Bacrot sat down to play their second World Championship in four days. This time it was back to classical chess, position 518 in Chess960 terms. A well researched position familiar to the players. Instead of having to worry about unprotected pawns and possible mates in the opening they could rely on preparation. And maybe it was the wish to be back on familiar territory that made the Ruy Lopez the opening of choice – four of six games featured a Ruy. But theory or not, the players showed interesting chess with Anand being the most fluent in Spanish. more...
