Chess Classic

Fischer’s Heir

31.07.2008 - On Wednesday the juniors and kids again had a chance to show their skills. In the 2. Mini-FiNet Chess960 Open U-14 they fought for rating places and trophies.

The idea of Chess960 goes back to the late American champion Bobby Fischer. Presumably, his rematch against Spassky in 1992 provoked him to advocate this new form of chess, which gets rid of the burden of the ever growing oppressive chess theory. In Chess960 there are 960 different possible ways to set up the pieces on the first rank and the game in fact “starts” with the first move – in contrast to classical chess the players cannot rely on known positions and 20 moves deep theoretical lines.

However, it took a couple of years until Fischer’s proposal reached a larger public. It was the Chess Classic that made Chess960 popular. In Mainz the first 960 World Championship was played and in the FiNet Open 2007 the World’s best players took part in an Open which could boast of almost 300 participants. Moreover, in 2007 the current World Champion Vishy Anand also gave this chess variant a try. His games against Levon Aronian in the final of the FiNet Chess960 World Championship were spectacular and helped Chess960 to gain world wide attention.

2. Mini-FiNet winner Sebastian Kaphle

To honor and to remember the 11. World Champion in the history of chess, organizer Hans-Walter Schmitt asked players and public to keep a minute of silence before the start of the 2. Mini-FiNet Open. However, the young talents had no trouble to focus again and they had no problems to cope with the minor change in the starting position. The clear favorite, Sebastian Kaphle from Post SV Uelze, who with 13 years of age already has an Elo-rating of 2122 lived up to the expectations and won with 6/7, winning five, losing none and conceding only two draws. Five points each had Carlo Pauli and the brothers Frederik und Julian Eigenmann who shared second to fourth place behind Kaphle.

However, no one went home empty-handed and every participant received a certificate. Not the only reason why all participants will remember the tournament fondly.
