How I kept my FiNet Chess960 World Champion title
Alexandra Kosteniuk analyses her Chess Classic Mainz 2008
18.08.2008 - “It’s the year 2025. Match for the world chess champion title. Game 23. White played an opening novelty on the 65th move of the Petroff defence. Black resigned.” This sad picture can actually become true if it is not already partly true now. Unending chess theory and grandmasters studying countless variations day and night on computer screens are today's reality of chess. Of course there is still creativity and fight and even brilliant ideas found over the chess board, but we must agree that today's chess is not the chess we saw 20 years ago. Now in 20 more years from today what kind of chess will we see? more...

Hikaru Nakamura wins FiNet Open in dramatic final
02.08.2008 - The 7. FiNet Open ended with a triumph by Hikaru Nakamura. The American, who had qualified through the ICC Qualifyer, dominated the field right from the start. However, with two rounds to go, when he already looked to be a certain winner, he stumbled against Arkadi Naiditsch, lost, and allowed the German to catch up with him. When Nakamura did not achieve more than a draw in the last round everybody believed the German would win the tournament – after all he was a whole queen up. But in desperate time trouble Naiditsch ran into a mate in three moves. Apart from Nakamura Sergei Movsesian and Alexander Motylev also scored 9 points, though were worse on tie-break points. more...

Alexandra Kosteniuk wins final to become Chess960 World Champion
Update
01.08.2008 - It was an exciting end of an entertaining and interesting event. In the final of the 2. FiNet Chess 960 Rapid World Championship Alexandra Kosteniuk and Kateryna Lahno played four hard fought, entertaining games. Sometimes Lahno Kosteniuk proved to be lucky, sometimes Lahno. But in all four games of the match, Kosteniuk set the pace in the end she deservedly became World Champion. more...

Kosteniuk wins convincingly, Lahno qualifies safely
30.07.2008 - The second half of the 2. FiNet Chess 960 Rapid World Championship turned out to be a rather one-sided affair. Alexandra Kosteniuk and Kateryna Lahno, who were leading after the first half, had a simple recipe to qualify for the final: They both won in rounds four and five to safely qualify. While Natalia Zhukova still had trouble with the clock she also seemed to be a bit shaken after her disastrous start into the tournament. Viktorija Cmylite tried hard but without success. more...

Not perfect, but entertaining
2. FiNet Chess960 Women's Rapid World Championship - 1st preliminary round
30.07.2008 - The first half of the 2. FiNet Chess960 Rapid World Championship produced entertaining though not perfect chess. It also showed that Alexandra Kosteniuk was able to handle the challenge of the limited time and the uncommon opening position best. After three rounds she leads with 2.5 points, followed by Kateryna Lahno with 2 points. Victorija Cmilyte scored 1.5 points while Natalia Zhukova had three promising positions and spoiled them all in time trouble to still remain on zero. Playing with a time limit of 20 minutes plus 5 seconds increment per move time proved to a crucial factor in all games. Having no theory to rely on, the players had to think right from the start and very often had only minutes left to realize possible advantages gained before. But judging from their relaxed and animated chat after the games, they all seemed to have a good time in Mainz. more...
