Chess Classic

Two sleepless challengers, one bug

11.08.2005 - Here is a short overview of the events that took place on Thursday in Mainz : the FiNet Chess960 Open, Livingston Chess960 Computer World Championship, the Grenke Leasing Match Anand-Grishuk and the FiNet Chess960 world championship Svidler-Almasi started today.

Chess960 Computer World Championship
The mayor of Mainz, Jens Beutel and chief organiser of the Chess Classic Mainz, Hans-Walter Schmitt opened the first Livingston Chess960 Computer World Championship today. The 19 programs play seven rounds on Thursday and Friday and then we will know who will be the first Chess960 Computer World Champion! The human Chess960 world champion, Peter Svidler, played the first move of the tourney on the top board. Schmitt promised that the winner of this tournament will be offered to play a match against the winner of the match Almasi-Svidler next year. After the first four rounds today, there is a surpising leader and the name of the leader is NOT Shredder! In the third round the German program was beaten by “Spike”, developed by local heroes Volker Böhm and Ralf Schäfer, who come from Mainz and Wiesbaden. We could also witness the first castling bug in this tournament: the program Patzer wanted to play the move Ke1xc8 in the game against Glaurung, which is illegal, not only in Chess960...

FiNet Open : Sokolov and Shirov sole leaders after five rounds

More than 200 players started in the FiNet Open today. Once again, it will be extremely difficult to win this tournament, because the field is immensly strong. There are five players with a rating over 2700: Etienne Bacrot (2728) Alexander Morozevich (2728), Levon Aronian (2724), Ivan Sokolov (2717) and Alexey Shirov (2705). But there are more very good players who would like to win the FiNet Chess960 Open. 11 more grandmaster have a 2600+ rating but also the women competition will be extremely, uhm, attractive this year: Alexandra Kosteniuk, Natalia Zhukova and Antoaneta Stefanova play the FiNet Open.

After the first five rounds of the FiNet Chess960 Open, only two players still have a 100% score: Ivan Sokolov from The Netherlands and Alexey Shirov, who is representing Spain. Levon Aronian, Michal Krasenkov, Etienne Bacrot, Rafael Vaganian and Alexander Graf scored 4,5 points on the first day. The best female players are Maya Chiburdanidze, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Natalia Zhukova and Antoaneta Stefanova with 4 points. This year, 207 players came to Mainz to play the tournament in which opening theory is not needed at all. Tomorrow six more tough rounds will be played. The winner of the FiNet Open is entitled to play a world championship match against the winner of the match Svidler-Almasi next year.

First match night in Mainz: Anand and Svidler take the lead.

The challengers will have a bad night: both Alexander Grischuk and Zoltan Almasi played good and attractive chess on the first “match night”, but in the end the more experience match players Vishy Anand and Peter Svidler cashed in the points. Almasi ist down 0,5-1,5 and was very frustated about the second game of the day. In the press conference the Hungarian, who wants to become the first Hungarian world champion said: “I am very disappointed, especially about the second game. In was completely winning, bu somehow managed not to win this game: unbelievable! But hey, tomorrow is a new day, which will give me new chances.” His opponent Peter Svidler agreed: “Yes, I got lucky in both games, Almasi could have scored 1,5 points tonight”.

Vishy Anand even managed to score two wins against his young Russian opponent Alexander Grischuk. German IM and editor of the magazine “Schach”, Dirk Poldauf said: Grischuk cannot keep on playing like he did tonight. His open style is very attractive for the audience, but Anand is too experienced in matches and knows exactly what he is doing”. In the first game Anand scored a win with the black pieces and that must have shocked the 21-year old Russian, because he lost the second game as well. In this short match 2-0 is almost decisive!
