Chess Classic

Playing like the big stars

28.07.2009 - The third Mini-ORDIX Open attracted 71 young players this year. In the rapid open for young chess players under 16, after seven hard-fought rounds Alexander Donchenko was the winner with a score of 6 points out of seven games. He remained unbeaten and won five games.

After the traditional opening press conference and the simul with Levon Aronian on Monday, the first day of the Chess Classic Mainz 2009 ended with some fine wining and dining at the Champions Dinner. For the gourmets: sliced baliksalmon with caviar was served, followed by lamb with lavender jus with quiche of pointed cabbage. The strawberry salsa with white chocolate mousse was a great dessert. At that time most of the young chess players who were about the play the Mini-ORDIX Open the next day, probably went to sleep already and perhaps dreamt of being the next chess world champion! On Tuesday, when the young talents came to the Rheingoldhalle with their parents and trainers, they could meet the world champion and some of the best players in the world in the popular first signing session of the week. Anand, Aronian, Nepo, Naiditsch, Bologan and Movsesian were ready to sign pictures, T-shirts, posters and books and anything else for the excited youngsters. Hikaru Nakamura obviously had to cope with the time difference and did not make it on time. However, in Mainz grandmasters are approachable and it is not difficult to snatch an autograph from a top player.

After the signing session, the first round in the Mini-ORDIX started at 11.00 sharp. This tournament is more or less a rehearsal for the Chess Tigers crew for the two big Opens, the FiNet and the ORDIX, which will start later this week. However, on Tuesday the kids fought under the same conditions as the top players. The tournament leaders played on stage and in the limelight – at the very same place where Vishy Anand, the world champion and all the other great players will move his pieces later in the week. The top games of the Mini-Open were transmitted to the big screens and the various monitors in the foyer of the Rheingoldhalle. But not only that: parents, who did not come to Mainz, could follow the deeds by their offspring live on the internet.
At the winner’s ceremony every participant received a certificate and the best players received a cup. Moreover, everybody was happy to get a glimpse of the special atmosphere of the Chess Classic. And most important: In Mainz there were only winners.
