Chess Classic

Double or hattrick?

13.08.2005 - 546 players started in the Ordix Open today. Many, many top grandmasters are among them like Shirov, Radjabov, Bacrot and Aronian, to name just a few. Surprisingly, Alexander Grischuk started as well. Anand´s challenger apparently wants to win his third Ordix Open title in a row, but does he have enough energy to play a tough tournament like the Ordix, which he dominated in 2003 and 2004, and two more games against Anand in the evening? In the evening matches, the Tiger from Madras tried to decide the Grenke Leasing match today but Grischuk easily won the sixth game. The Chess960 match between Svidler and Almasi will be decided on the last day, but it will be very difficult for the challenger to win the match, because Svidler won the sixth game. He only needs half a point tomorrow.

Ordix Open- Magnificent Seven leaders of the pack
Seven players still have a perfect score after the first five rounds of the Ordix Open. You could compare them with the characters from the movie “The Magnificent Seven”: a legendary western from 1960, directed by John Sturges, with fine actors like Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson.  'Magnificent Seven' is an analogy for living the brave life. One of the brave chess players in Mainz is Alexander Grischuk, who is not only playing a tough match against Vishy Anand, but he decided to play the Ordix Open to “win a few games”. He had a horrible start against 14-year old Reinhold Müller. He played 127 moves in his first game and was lucky that the young German, ELO rating 2134,  lost a completely drawn rook ending with a few seconds left on the clock. But Grischuk seems to have found his confidence after that game, because he won all the other games in the Ordix Open today and is leading the pack with a 100% score. There are six more magnificent players with the same score: Teimur Radjabov, Alexander Morozevich, Igor Glek, Arkadi Naiditsch, Rainer Buhmann and the winner of the FiNet Open, Levon Aronian,  who plays great chess in Mainz. Never before a player managed to win the Chess960 Open and the Ordix Open. Will the 22- year old Armenian be the first player to do so? Or will Grischuk score a hattrick? We will find out tomorrow, when six more rounds will be played. Round number 6 will start at 10.00 and the top boards will be broadcast live on this site. The technicians had significant trouble getting the games live on the Net. A nasty computer virus caused many problems and headaches.

Alexandra Kosteniuk
Alexandra Kosteniuk is playing a very good Chess Classic tournament this year. She showed not only some good games in the FiNet Open, which she enjoys very much according to her website (“I love Chess960!”) but she plays very well in the Ordix Open too. She will particularly be pleased with her great victroy over  Ivan Sokolov. She played against the Dutchman in the FiNet Chess960 Open and lost that game. In the last round of the day she drew against Zvaginsev and now has 4,5 points. Alexandra´s next tournament will be the Russian Championship (men) in Kazan, early September.

“I won my first game against Yusupov!”, Dirk Poldauf, editor of the German magazine “Schach”, smiled. “However, I did not play Artur, but his wife Nadia.” The Yusupov children, Alexander, rating 1943 and Ekatarina, rated 1992, also play in the Ordix Open. Yesterday, the Yusupov kids won the special youth prices in the FiNet Open. The two youngstars play for chessclub SK Krumbach.
