Corus Chess 2010

February 2, 2010

Top rated Magnus Carlsen proved that his favorite status was justified at the 2010 edition of the Wijk ann Zee Chess Tournament.  He simply outplayed everyone else. Viswanathan Anand was clearly reserving his best chess for the upcoming World Championship match with Vladimir Topalov and ended tied for fourth with Hikaru Nakamura.  In fact, World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand was all draws until late in the event when he was able to “stick it to” Kramnik one last time and keep Vladimir out of contention for the gold. The United States, for the most part,  was well represented. Hikaru Nakamuru and Ray Robson provided plenty of excitement early on while Varuzhan Akobian had an embarrassing performance. Below are all the chess games in pgn from Corus 2010:

Corus Chess 2010: Americans Shine Brightly and Fade

January 27, 2010

For the first time in recent history, American chess players were commanding respect and attention in Wijk aan Zee.  Hats off to Hikaru Nakamura and Ray Robson for shining bright enough that the chess world took notice. Unfortunately for the American chess fans, it appears that our two rising stars have been swallowed by the black hole residing in round nine. Nakamura was issued his second loss in two games and is now tied for fifth. Meanwhile in the “C” section, Robson took a loss to top rated Li Chao and fell down to second place a half game back of Chao.  GM Robson appears to be running out of steam but remains in striking distance. Below are the dissappointing round nine performances from our American contingent in Wijk aan Zee. Also included is Vladimir Kramnik’s stunner over top rated Magnus Carlsen.  Kramnik has back to back wins over the very dangerous Nakamura and Carlsen. He is now tied for first with Alexei Shirov.

In Round 8, Nakamura had a major set back. Loosing to Kramnik forced him to fall two places in the standings and caused many supporters to give up on the hope that he could actually win the Corus Chess Tournament. I should not have to remind all the fair weather fans that it is perfectly acceptable for Nakamura to take a loss with the black pieces against a player as strong as Kramnik. Nakamura’s day will come and it still could happen this January.

Алексей Дмитриевич Широв at Corus 2010

January 22, 2010

Alexei Shirov is absolutely destroying GM after GM in the 2010 edition of the prestigious Corus Super Tournament. His  pace of 5 points in 5 rounds borders on ridiculous and has landed him an astronomical performance rating that can not be truly calcualted until he does not win a game. Once again I find myself wondering why the greatest attacking chess player of my generation was never in a World Championship Match. Oh yes… I recall now.  In 1998 Shirov was invited to play a match against Kramnik to determine the challenger for then World Champion Kasparov. Shirov won the match. However a dishonorable  Kasparov elected to play Kramnik instead and thus deprived Shirov of his rightfuly earned chance to play for the World Championship title. I strongly suggest that readers of this blog do some quick searches to read the comments from these players regarding this unfortunate incident. Below is my favorite game from Shirov at Corus 2010. Perhaps visitors can comment on the Tal styled sacrafice on move 26.
