Chess Classic

Crocodiles take the lead after first day

10.08.2005 - After the opening press conference the Chess Classic Tournament 2005 finally started! In the first round of the Unzicker Gala, Karpov met his old rival Viktor Korchnoi. In this game, Karpov won after an impressive performance with the black pieces. He showed that he is eager to win his 160+ tourney here in Mainz! In the other game Spassky and Unzicker choose a calm opening and decided to start their tournament with a quiet draw. In the second round, Korchnoi won a good games against Spassky, whereas Unzicker managed a draw in his game against Karpov. Although the Russian was a pawn up, the 80-year old fought for a draw and eventually got his deserved half point in the rook ending. In the last round of the day, Karpov and Spassky decided to end the day with a draw, but in the other game, Viktor Korchnoi once again showed his fighting spirit and after a Unzicker missed some good opportunities, the Swiss vice-world champion won the game.

In the press conference after the last round, Unzicker said that he had a very good position in his last game against Korchnoi “Maybe I had a strategically winning position, but it is difficult in rapid chess to actually win such a position. Tactical positions are easier in rapid chess. In my second game against Karpov I played well, although I had a difficult position”. Karpov agreed:”Yes, Wolfgang defended very well and deserved the draw. In the game against Korchnoi I could not get an clear advantage after the opening, but I think the position in the middle game was easier to play with the black pieces, and that resulted in my first win of the tournament”. Korchnoi started playing with dark sunglasses in this game, but Karpov was not irritated. “Well, for a moment I thought about Baguio 1978, but I did not really care”. Spassky admitted that he was playing for a draw against Unzicker in the first round, and in his second game of the day against Korchnoi he had a good position. “But I could not find the correct plan and I have to say that Viktor played really well.” Korchnoi was also supposed to at the press conference but after his win in the last round he was suddenly gone. Well, hopefully he´ll be back on time for the rest of the tourney!
