Focus on the family
Opening press conference and drawing of lots
29.07.2008 - The expert round at the press conference table on Monday were convinced that Vishy Anand will win another Chess Classic title this year, but it will be a hard battle according to Anand: “Magnus Carlsen has a winning streak this year winning big tournaments like Wijk aan Zee and Baku, and he is leading the tournament in Biel currently. That is very impressive. All players in the Grenke Leasing Rapid World Championship have an attractive style. Alexander Morozevich and Magnus seem to be in great form, and my games with Judit Polgar are always hard-fought. I even had a 14-game sequence with Polgar without a single draw.” Since the Grenke Rapid World Championship will be played at the end of the week, the women were in the focus of attention during the opening press conference, because they will start off with the FiNet Chess960 Women´s rapid world championship today. Alexandra Kosteniuk, Natalia Zhukova, Victorija Cmilyte and Katherina Lahno will play a round robin with a 4-game final on Thursday. Also starting on Tuesday : the Mini Ordix Open for players under 14. more...

Anand against 40 trying to break his own record
Simultaneous sponsored by Stadtwerke Mainz AG
28.07.2008 - The Chess Classic Mainz began in style. World Champion Vishy Anand and 10-times winner of the Rapid World Chess Championship in Mainz opened the event with a simul on 40 boards. This time, maybe a bit more than just the usual chess entertainment simuls tend to be. Of course, Anand has his mind on the World Championship match against Vladimir Kramnik, which will be played in October. Doing badly in a simul might not be good for his confidence. But possibly Anand does not even think about defeat and just wants to break another record in Mainz where he already holds so many records. Four draws in 40 games is the best result ever achieved in these simultaneous events, which traditionally start the Chess Classic. And this record was set back in 1994, at the first Chess Classic ever – and by no other but Vishy Anand himself. more...
