Navara express takes Mainz by storm
Who is David Navara?

19.08.2007 - David Navara from the Czech Republic is the winner of the 14th Ordix Open. Despite his quick loss in the last round against Krishnan Sasikiran, the 22-year old deserves this victory. The Navara express lead the field from the moment go and although Krishnan Sasikiran and Mikhail Mchedlishvili from Georgia, who won in the final round against Alexander Grishuk also scored 9,5 points it was clear before the start of the last round that Navara’s progressive score was more than enough to win the tournament. Congratulations to David Navara! Harry Schaack and Eric van Reem had a short conversation with the winner of the Ordix Open.

David Navara talking about the Ordix Open.

The Navara Express from Prague


What happened in the key game of the tournament against Harikrishna?

“It was a difficult tournament for me and I was very lucky in my game against GM Pentala Harikrishna. I played very well and got a very promising position, but I blundered and faced  a lost position. I was about to resign, but I saw one more move, played it and suddenly my opponent lost on time. I said: I am very sorry, but you have lost on time”.     


What was your best game in the tournament?

That is hard to say. I do not have a particular favourite game. I did not play very well in the first three rounds, because I do not play very often against amateurs. I played some bad moves in those games. For me it is hard to concentrate and to focus on the game in those moments.

Another one bites the dust: Tigran L. Petrosian


How do you prepare for a tournament in general?

That is very difficult for me. Sometimes when I am well prepared, I play very bad games, sometimes I do not do anything, but play good chess. I do not really know what to do. But of course I am happy to have won this big open tournament, after a period of moderate and bad results.


Where does the nickname “Navara Express” come from?

When I played in the Corus tournament inWijk aan Zee this year, a Czech newspaper nicknamed me Navara Express, because I played so well. Actually I lost some ELO points in that tournament. I do not really care about the nickname.


What are you going to do next?

At the end of the month I will play a 10-game match against GM Nigel Short in Prague. We will play four Chess960 games and six normal rapid games. After that I will play another tournament in the Czech Republic, in Karlsbad with very strong players like Shirov, Kortchnoi and Timman.

Some facts and figures about David Navara


David’s career was progressing very fast under coaches like Luděk Pachman or Vlastimil Jansa, as he won several world medals in youth categories. In 2001, aged 16, he got 7 of 9 in the European Team Championships. One year later, three days before his 17th birthday, he received the Grandmaster title. Navara won the Czech Chess Championship in 2004 and 2005. He was very successful in the 37th Chess Olympiad 2006, having 8.5 points from 12 games against world-class competition.


In 2007 he was invited for the first time into supertournament in Wijk aan Zee, where he replaced Alexander Morozevich. Navara, nicknamed Navara Express by an Czech newspaper, won 6.5 points of 13 games (+3-3=7) including a win against former chess world champion Ruslan Ponomariov and defending draws with the black pieces against Kramnik and Topalov and finished in joint 7th place. Navara played several matches in Prague, drawing with Anatoly Karpov (+0-0=2) in 2005 and Boris Gelfand (+1-1=2) in 2006. He will play a combined Chess960/Chess518 rapid match at the end of this month against British GM Nigel Short. 


Since 2004, Navara studies Logic at the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts, Charles University in Prague.
