Wesley So beat a struggling Michael Adams in round three of the Vugar Gashimov Memorial to reach 2.5/3. Magnus Carlsen won a second game in a row beating Shakhriyar Mamedyarov in round 2 and Fabiano Caruana with black to reach the same score. Caruana was scathing about his own play in losing to Carlsen. He didn't play the opening well but thought anything would draw the resulting position. The remaining games were drawn in rounds 2 and 2 with Viswanathan Anand's draw against Anish Giri being very sharp.

Round 3 Standings: Carlsen, So 2.5pts/3, Kramnik 2pts, Anand, Mamedov, Vachier-Lagrave 1.5pts, Giri, Mamedyarov, Caruana 1pts, Adams 0.5pts.

Round 4 pairings: Adams-Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave-Caruana, Giri-Mamedyarov, Kramnik-Anand and So-Mamedov.

US Chess Championships 2015

US Chess Championships 2015 Games and Results

The US Chess Championships took place in St Louis 1st to 12th April 2015.Players men: Hikaru Nakamura, Wesley So, Ray Robson, Gata Kamsky, Alexander Onischuk, Daniel Naroditsky, Sam Shankland, Varuzhan Akobian, Timur Gareev, Kayden Troff, Sam Sevian and Conrad Holt. The women's event has Irina Krush, Tatev Abrahamyan, Anna Sharevich etc. Play starts 1pm local time 7pm BST. Top seeds Hikaru Nakamura and Irina Krush took the men's and women's title. Wesley So was controversially defaulted a game after taking inspirational notes to his game vs Var Akobian after warnings about similar messages on his score sheets. I also wonder if we'll look back at this event as Sam Sevian's debut, the 14 year old finished on 50% after winning on time in a position he was only trying to save against Conrad Holt.

Tbilisi FIDE Grand Prix 2015

Tbilisi FIDE Grand Prix 2015 Games and Results

The Tbilisi FIDE Grand Prix took place 15th February (Round 1) to 27th February 2015. Players: Alexander Grischuk, Anish Giri, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Peter Svidler, Dmitry Andreikin, Dmitry Jakovenko, Teimour Radjabov, Leinier Dominguez Perez, Evgeny Tomashevsky, Rustam Kasimdzhanov and Baadur Jobava. The favourites Anish Giri and Alexander Grischuk both had disappointing results. The event was dominated by Evgeny Tomashevsky scoring 8/11 a point and a half clear of Dmitry Jakovenko. Tomashevsky goes to the top of the Grand Prix standings and will also play the final event in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia 13th to 27th May 2015. It seems likely Tomashevsky, Caruana, Nakamura and maybe Gelfand and Jakovenko will fight it out for the two Candidates places. Karjakin, Grischuk and Giri will no doubt have to win the event to have any chance at all of qualifying by this route. Mamedyarov currently stands second but he will inevitably be overtaken in the final tournament. FIDE Grand Prix Wiki page. Read more ....

The Week in Chess is 20 years old today. The first issue of the magazine was published on Saturday 17th September 1994. In the full article below I give an update from the 1000th issue earlier in the year. I list all 1036 issues so far along with their text and with a donation button to get all the games in ChessBase format. I feel a great sense of achievement in reaching this landmark. I hope that in some small way I've helped players all over the world keep in touch with chess and have access to almost every top class game over that time no matter how rich or poor they are. Now I have to look to the future. I plan to be around a long while. I have some obvious additions I can make to the website that only require some programming but also my personal financial stability has to come to the fore now. Read more ....
