48th Biel Chess Festival 2015

48th Biel Chess Festival 2015 Games and Results

The 48th Biel Chess Festival took place Monday 20th Jul 2015 - Thursday 30th Jul 2015. Players in the main GM group: Michael Adams, Radoslaw Wojtaszek, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, David Navara, Pavel Eljanov and Richard Rapport. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave took clear first on 6.5/10 after a nervy final round where he won and Radoslaw Wojtaszek failed to convert a winning position. The event will also probably be remembered for the complete collapse of Richard Rapport who lost all his second half games. There's always a danger when inviting creative players that they're out of form that they'll suffer multiple losses but this was an extreme example but surely better to risk this than invite someone very solid who is all but guaranteed to draw most of their games. In addition there is a master open which finishes on Friday. Read more ....

The format is unusual. 1 game matches followed by Blitz and Armageddon if necessary. Winner continues on loser is out. A team loses when it runs out of players.

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 ....
