Chess Classic

Close race for glory in Ordix Open
Six players with a perfect score after first day

18.08.2007 - Despite the beautiful weather in Mainz on Saturday, more than 750 chessplayers came to the Rheingoldhalle to play the world-famous Ordix Open. The organisers hoped to break the 700 player barrier this year and the pre-registration already looked very promising. In the end no less than 761 chess players registered for the 14th edition of the Ordix Open. More and more players come to Mainz every year to play in this popular tournament. When you live in Holland, as a chess player you must have played the renowned Corus Tournament once in your life, in Germany the Chess Classic has become a high-class brand name. You just have to play in Mainz!

The stage on which the top games in the Ordix are played

 The news gets around that in Mainz you have excellent playing conditions, an on-time start of the rounds, a top-class field with strong grandmasters and ambitious amateurs and, not to forget, an attractive prize fund. On the other hand, the tournament is open for chess players off all classes. And the fun thing is that everybody plays in one big open tournament, which makes the Chess Classic unique and attractive. And if you do not want to play or do not play well, there is always the possibility to go hunting for autographs of the stars.


Look at this numbers: In the first Ordix Open in Mainz 2001 484 chess players were registered, one year later 496, in 2003 the magic 500 barrier was broken, in 2004 we had 542 players, 546 in 2005. Last year the Ordix jumped to 632 and this year to 761. And there is still space in the Rheingoldhalle, so the logical question arises: where will this end?

Hard to believe, but there are still some seats left!


Let´s talk about this year´s Ordix Open. The top players have to be careful not to lose a point in this strong field. The top 10 ELO average is over 2700, the top 20 ELO average is 2684! Now and again a top GM drops half a point here and there, but most of the top seeds are very concentrated and therefore it is not surprising to see the ”usual suspects” on the top of the list with a 100% score after the first day: Gabriel Sargissian, Vassili Ivanchuk, Shakhriyar

Mamedyarov, David Navara, Vladimir Akopian and Igor Khenkin. In the last round of today, top seed Ivanchuk met German hope Arkadi Naiditsch. He met him in the FiNet open already and was beaten by the German. Today, the Ukranian won the game. There are more stories of grandmasters and masters who met in the FiNet and in the Ordix. The editor of the German chess magazine “Schach” Dirk Poldauf met the very talented 14-year old youngest grandmaster of the world Parimarjan Negi in the FiNet , scored a draw but in the Ordix, Poldauf won a really beautiful attacking game.

Public viewing in the lobby-good service for the audience


On Sunday, six more rounds are scheduled. Last year, Rustam Kasimdzahnov scored with 9,5 points and won the tourney in the end, but in this strong field it debatable if the same score will be enough to win the toughest Open tournament in the world. The experts in the press room guess that the winner has to score at least 10 points this year. We will find out on Sunday and of course you are invited to watch the top games on the Internet. The sixth round will start at 10.00. It is very easy to navigate on the site if you are looking for results and standings. On the left hand side of the screen you can see a list of events played in the Chess Classic. Under the 14th Ordix Open tab you can click on the category “fixtures and results” and there is a direct link to the games, which can be downloaded. For live games, click on CCM7 Live-Portal.

This gentleman must have played five hard-fought games on Saturday
