Nine players with a clean slate after day 1 in Ordix Open
Alexandra Kosteniuk in great form

02.08.2008 - The Ordix Open is a fixed date in the chess calendar for many rapid chess lovers and this year no less than 692 (corrected) participants made the yearly pilgrimage to Mainz. Playing in the same hall with top grandmasters is very attractive for many amateurs and since 53 GM, 44 IM and 66 FM play the Ordix, there is a fair chance that you meet a top player over the board on the first day. After the first five rounds, there are still nine players who have a clean slate: Vaganjan, Movsesian, Najer, Almasi, Horvath, Tregubov, Jaracz, Horvath, Nepomniachtchi and Kosteniuk. She seems to be in top form this week.

Silence before the storm ...

Minute of silence for Robert James Fischer

The big names in the Ordix this year are Movsesian, Eljanov, Nakamura, Najer, Naiditsch and Kasimdzhanov but there are many experienced grandmasters who love to play the rapid open in Mainz each year like Rafael Vaganjan, Vlastimil Hort, Ulf Andersson and Klaus Bischoff. The four women that played the FiNet Chess960 rapid world championship do also play the Ordix Open: Kosteniuk, Cmilyte, Lahno and Zhukova.

Alexandra Kosteniuk

Kateryna Lahno

Ian "Nepo" Nepomniachtchi

In the first few rounds the grandmasters have a relatively easy job, although some of players that just finished the Chess960 open had some difficulties with position 518, the normal starting position. GM Dennis de Vreugt actually needed a few minutes to discover that he was playing “normal chess”. “This was really weird, I was even thinking about how to castle in the first game”. Vlastimil Hort had a winning position in the second round, but eventually lost the game because he was not concentrated anymore. “Well”, Hort said, “it is difficult to concentrate when you have a winning position, but against these young guys you always have to be careful.” Hort, who is one of the kindest grandmasters around, scored four points on the first day. Since he won the senior’s competition in the FiNet Open, he is the top candidate to win the combined FiNet/Ordix title.

Sergei Movsesian - Natalia Zhukova

Rafael Vaganian - Kateryna Lahno

In the third round no dramatic accidents happened, but there were a few surprising draws in the fourth round: IM Vinay Bhat from the USA met his fellow countryman Hikaru Nakamura and had a completely winning position in the rook ending, but in severe time trouble he could not find the right path to victory. In the same round Kasimdzhanov drew his game against Schneider and also the game between Eljanov and Farago ended in a draw after a hard-fought game. In the last round of the day black seemed to be OK, because no less than 8 out 9 games on the top boards ended in victories for black. Kosteniuk played a good game against Hracek and Vaganjan’s win over Kateryna Lahno was interesting for endgame lovers. German ace Arkadij Naiditsch lost against Pawel Jaracz. On Sunday six more rounds will be played. We will see who can keep the pace and will become the successor of David Navara, who won the Ordix last year. Unfortunately he cannot defend his title this year, since he is playing the Grand Prix tournament in Sochi at the moment.
