s GP Moscow semifinals 3

Alexander Grischuk of Russia beat Hikaru Nakamura of the United States on Friday to earn a place in the final of the Moscow Grand Prix. He will have to wait until Saturday to find out who is opponent is in the final as the other semifinal – between Radoslaw Wojtaszek of Poland and Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia – ended in a tie after both regulation games were drawn.

Both semifinals started with draws, so a win on Friday could clinch either match. Grischuk, who had White, was able to take advantage.

The opening was a Catalan, which has been very heavily analyzed. Nakamura chose an aggressive continuation and Grischuk sacrificed a pawn, giving him a lasting initiative. Though chances were objectively equal, the position was much easier to play as White. The players repeated moves a couple of times, but Grischuk chose not to repeat the position, which would have led to a draw.

The position became increasingly complicated, but Grischuk navigated the situation a little better than Nakamura, who found himself under greater and greater pressure. Grischuk finally restored material equality on Move 29 by winning a pawn, but his position remained better and easier to play.

Nakamura erred with 31 … Bf6, and then cracked with 35 … Nb6. Grischuk pounced with 36 Ne5 and then 37 Nc6! After a forced sequence of moves, Grischuk had won a pawn and had a significant edge in an endgame.

Grischuk eventually won a second pawn, which was decisive. Nakamura resigned after 54 moves, allowing Grischuk to advance.

In an interview after, Grischuk said he sort of expected the variation that Nakamura played, but that he believed it is a very difficult line for Black to defend. Still, he said it was not easy, mentioning that at one point he calculated 15 moves deep (!), but found a resource for Black.

For his part, Nakamura pointed to 25… Kh8 as a crucial mistake because he overlooked 26 Bd3.

In the other semifinal game, Wojtaszek had White and played a relatively passive opening against Nepomiachtchi’s King Indian formation. White’s set up did not pose any particular problems for Nepomniachtchi and he managed to equalize without trouble. The players agreed to a draw after only 22 moves, sending their match into overtime.

The tie-breaker begins at 3 PM local time on Saturday. The broadcast can be viewed free and live at worldchess.com.

s LOGO UGRA KHANTY 2020
Berik Balgabaev (FIDE President's Advisor) and Kema Goryaeva (FIDE events manager) visited Khanty-Mansiysk for an official inspection to review the preparations for the World Chess Olympiad. The FIDE delegation paid visits to the hotels, airport and other infrastructures of the 44th Olympiad, that will be held in the Russian city during the first half of August 2020.

Afterwards, they held a meeting with the local authorities in charge of the event. On behalf of the local organizers, the meeting was attended by Yuri Yuzhakov (Deputy Governor of Ugra region), Sergey Artamonov (Director of the Department of Physical Culture and Sports of Ugra), Roman Genkel (General Director of the Ugra Development Fund), Valery Radchenko (Director of "UgraMegaSport") and Vasily Filipenko (President of the Ugra Chess Federation). In the meeting, all the main organizational aspects of the Olympiad were discussed – transportation, accommodation, communication, registration, flights to Khanty-Mansiysk and others.

During the Chess Olympiad 2020, the airport of Ugra capital will become the main transport hub of the region. Every day it will be served with 15-17 flights from Moscow, compared with the 2-3 daily direct flights that normally connect Khanty-Mansiysk with the Russian capital. This will ensure that the thousands of participants, arbiters and officials of the Olympiad will find suitable travel connections. To make the process smoother, it was decided to establish two arrival days in the schedule instead of one. The airport is the place where people get their first impression of a city, so the renovation process has already started there.

The new Sports Arena, which is planned to be built near the Tennis Center and the Exhibition Center "Ugra-Expo", will be a modern playing venue for the 44th Chess Olympiad. The construction works will start next week and it is scheduled to be completed by June 2020, with margin enough to add the final touches before the competition starts.

The accommodation of players and accompanying persons was another important topic of the meeting. Thousands of people will visit Khanty-Mansiysk for the Olympiad, and the organizers informed the FIDE representatives about the current number of hotel rooms that the city offers at the moment. "We are expecting approximately 3300 players, team members, arbiters and officials to come to Ugra for the event. The sporting infrastructure will be ready on time. Khanty-Mansiysk already hosted the Chess Olympiad in 2010 and the organizers proved to have the capabilities and experience to do this once again", – said the Director of Physical Culture and Sports Department of Ugra, Sergey Artamonov.

"FIDE has been closely cooperating with Ugra since 2005. All the events here were held at the highest organizational level, and I am sure everything will run smoothly this time as well", said Berik Balgabaev. "Some minor issues have already been solved, some will be fixed soon. FIDE notes with great satisfaction that the organizers have already fulfilled all their financial obligations to the International Chess Federation both in organizing the World Cup 2019 and the World Chess Olympiad 2020. I am sure that all other issues that have been raised today will be settled accordingly. The event is in good hands."

s Semi-final 00
Nerves were on display on Thursday in the first games of the semifinals of the Moscow Grand Prix – the players in both games had winning chances when the games were stopped by mutual agreement.

The first game to finish on Thursday was between Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia and Radoslaw Wojtaszek of Poland. Arguably, that draw was the more curious of the two.

Nepomniachtchi, who had White, blitzed out his first 25 moves against Wojtaszek's Najdorf Sicilian Defense, using almost no time on his clock, indicating that he was still basically following analysis that he had done before the game. At that point, Black's position was under pressure as White's pieces were all pointing menacingly at Black's castled king.

One move later, however, after thinking for about 10 minutes, Nepomniachtchi played 26 h3 (about 1:45 into the broadcast), a somewhat weak move, and offered a draw, which was quickly accepted.

Afterward, in an interview, Nepomniachtchi did not sound very confident, suggesting that he thought that Wojtaszek knew exactly what he should be doing. Radoslaw said that he accepted the draw because he was already well behind on the clock and the position was very complicated.

The other game featured Hikaru Nakamura of the United States and Alexander Grischuk of Russia. The opening was a Giuoco Piano, which is Italian for "quiet game." The opening usually features a lot of quiet maneuvering, but it can become very tactical if the center opens.

Nakamura surprised Grischuk on Move 16 by exchanging his light-squared bishop, which is usually an essential piece for White, in order to win a pawn. The plan turned out to be double-edged as Grischuk's pieces began to spring to life, putting immense pressure on Nakamura's center. Grischuk followed up by posting his remaining knight aggressively on f4, presaging a possible attack against Nakamura's king. Though Nakamura was not objectively worse, the position was much easier to play for Black than for White.

But, with time running low on both players' clocks, Grischuk played 35... Rc8, which was readily accepted by Nakamura.

In an interview afterward, Nakamura said that Grischuk's 14... Qc7 had not been part of his pre-game analysis preparation, but that it turned out not to be bad. He said that he accepted the draw offer because the position was messy and he did not have enough time to evaluate it better. Grischuk said that he also did not have much confidence in his position at the end, which is why he offered the draw.

The matches resume Friday at 3 PM local time. The broadcast can be viewed free and live at www.worldchess.com.

Dear chess friends,

The International Chess Federation, Spanish Chess Federation (FEDA) and the Organizing Committee, have the honour to invite all the FIDE member Chess Federations to participate in the FIDE World Youth Chess Championships Rapid and Blitz 2019.

This competition will be held in Salobrena (Spain), from September 10th to September 14th, 2019. As usual, it is divided in the categories under 14, under 16 and under 18 years old, with both open and girls sections.

Salobrena is a town on the "Costa Tropical" in Granada, Spain. It claims a history stretching back 6,000 years. The nearest airport is Granada (50km), served by Easyjet and British Airways, but Malaga airport is merely 81 km away and offers many more international connections.

The first FIDE Social Commission meeting was held at Tryp Habana Libre Hotel, in Havana (Cuba) on 11th of May 2019, during the Capablanca Memorial Festival. The Secretary of FIDE Planning and Development Commission, Sonja Johnson, also attended the meeting as an advisor.

s Round 2 tb 03
Three 
semi-finalists were decided Wednesday in the Moscow Grand Prix as Hikaru Nakamura of the United States and Ian Nepomniachtchi and Alexander Grischuk, both of Russia, advanced from the quarterfinals after prevailing in rapid tie-breaker games. They join Radoslaw Wojtaszek of Poland who won his quarterfinal match on Tuesday.


That was necessary for three of the quarterfinal matches after the regulation games were drawn.

Nakamura, who faced Daniil Dubov of Russia, took control of his tie-breaker by winning the first game, even though he had Black. The opening was a Classical English, with Dubov essaying 8 b3, which is a bit unusual. Nakamura had little trouble equalizing and even managed to obtain the bishop pair. The game seemed most likely to end in a draw until Dubov inadvisedly grabbed Nakamura's pawn on d5, trapping his rook. Nakamura was able to win the rook for a bishop and then gradually outplayed Dubov in a long endgame.

In the second game, Dubov faced a must-win situation, but it was Nakamura who established an edge out of the opening. He eventually won an exchange and then forced an endgame where he was clearly better. Though Nakamura could probably have won if he wanted to, he was content to force a draw by repeating the position as that clinched the match.

Nepomniachtchi was paired against Wei Yi of China. Game 1 was exciting as Nepomniachtchi, who had Black, chose to defend the Poison Pawn Variation, which has been heavily analyzed and is very complex. After a forcing sequence of moves, the players simplified to an ending in which Wei was a little bit better. Nepomniachtchi pressed too hard and eventually lost his one piece for several pawns, but they were disconnected and seemingly easy targets. The one factor weighing in Nepomniachtchi's favor was that he had more time on his clock. Wei slowly increased his advantage until Move 44, when he erred, costing him his edge. Nepomniachtchi was able to win Wei's bishop for a passed pawn, after which the players agreed to a draw.

In Game 2, Wei chose an inferior version of the Caro-Kann Defense. By Move 20, he was already under pressure when he blundered with 20 ... f6, overlooking Nepomniachtchi's clever reply – 21 h4! Suddenly, Wei could not avoid the loss of a significant amount of material. He chose to give up his queen for a rook and a knight, but Black had too many weak pawns and Nepomniachtchi was able to force resignation after 45 moves.

In the third playoff, Grischuk had Black in Game 1 against Wesley So of the United States. The opening was the Sveshnikov or Pelikan Variation in the Sicilian Defense. Grischuk built up his forces on the kingside while So concentrated on the queenside, attacking Grischuk's weak pawns. So managed to win those pawns, but only by allowing Grischuk's attack to become very menacing. Just when it seemed that Grischuk was ready to break through, he allowed a perpetual attack on his queen, ending the game as a draw. If, instead of 27 ... Qc5 he had played 27 ... Qe7, the computer engines evaluated the position as very much in Black's favor.

In Game 2, Grischuk obtained a clear edge out of the opening as he was able to break apart So's pawns. So defended admirably for quite a while, but, eventually, the pawn weaknesses were simply too much. On his 42nd move, Grischuk won a pawn and eventually achieved a winning rook-and-pawn ending after a few inaccuracies by So.

In an interview afterward, Grischuk was not too happy with his play in either game, saying, "My technique was 50 percent of Magnus [Carlsen], which was enough."

The semifinals begin at 3 PM local time on Thursday. The broadcast can be viewed free and live at worldchess.com.

Nakamura will face Grischuk, while Wojtaszek plays Nepomniachtchi.

s Round 2 game 2 00
Radoslaw Wojtaszek is the first player to advance to the semifinals of the Moscow Grand Prix after he beat Peter Svidler on Tuesday. The other semifinalists will be decided on Wednesday in playoffs
as the rest of the quarterfinal matches ended in ties after all the games were drawn.

All the games on the first day of the quarterfinals on Monday were drawn, so any victory Tuesday would clinch a match. Wojtaszek, who is from Poland, was the only player to break through.

He had White against Svidler, who is from Russia. By transposition, the opening became a Benoni, which is not thought to be very good for Black, but is ultra-sharp and certainly offers both sides many possibilities.

Svidler consumed more time on the clock in the opening, but he achieved a reasonable position after 20 moves. The question was: how should each side continue?

At Move 25, Svidler took a calculated risk: He sacrificed an exchange (rook for bishop) plus a pawn to put Wojtaszek's centre under pressure. It seemed like a reasonable decision, despite the stakes, but Wojtaszek found the best moves, particularly 2 Rf3!, and Svidler was gradually driven back.

Wojtaszek eventually won a queen for a rook and, after that, it was only a matter of mopping up. Svidler resigned after 42 moves.

In an interview afterward, Svidler pinpointed 27 ... Bd4 as the critical mistake.

Though none of the other games was decisive, they were hard fought.

The longest game of the day was between Wesley So of the United States and Alexander Grischuk of Russia. So, who had White, opened with 1 e4 and Grischuk replied with the Sicilian Defense, 1 ... c5. The game went down the path of the Sveshnikov or Pelikan Variation, which is known to be a very solid defense for Black. So managed to win Black's backward d pawn on Move 21, but it allowed Black to simplify the position and achieve activity for his remaining pieces. The players continued to Move 69, long after there were any reasonable winning chances.

The game between Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia and Wei Yi of China went nearly as long – 68 moves – but Nepomniachtchi had slightly better winning chances than So had. The opening was an Open Ruy Lopez in which Wei had two pawns (his b and d pawns) that were a little lose and hard to defend. Nepomniachtchi managed to win one of them, but only by allowing doubled b pawns and some exchanges of pieces. After that, with accurate defense, Wei was able to hold on.

The other game, between Daniil Dubov of Russia and Hikaru Nakamura of the United States, was a Catalan, with Dubov handling the White pieces. Though there are many tricky variations in the Catalan, the opening has been very heavily analyzed and it is hard to surprise anyone at the top level these days. Nakamura had little trouble equalizing chances and the game was drawn in a largely symmetrical position after 32 moves.

The playoffs begin Wednesday with the rapid games at 3 PM local time. The broadcast can be viewed free and live at worldchess.com.
Given the high caliber of the players, there are no real favorites in any match.

s Round 2 game 1 00
The second round of the Moscow Grand Prix began with four draws on Monday, though there were several pitched battles. Since the Grand Prix is using a knockout format, all competitors will face each other on Tuesday in the second half of their mini-matches. If those games end in draws, then the players will proceed to faster tie-breaker games on 
Wednesday to decide who advances to the semifinals of the tournament.

One feature of the quarterfinals of the Moscow Grand Prix is that there are four Russian players facing two American players, one from China and one from Poland. It has the same format, inadvertently, as the Russia vs. the World match in 2002 (and before that, the U.S.S.R. vs. the World matches in 1970 and 1984). All the games on Monday had interesting moments. Perhaps the most unusual was between Hikaru Nakamura, one of the two Americans, and Daniil Dubov.

Dubov, who is known to be very well prepared, had Black and blitzed out his opening moves on the Black side of a Symmetrical English, barely using any time on his clock by Move 20. The position on the board at that point was remarkable: Dubov had a pawn on d3 and his entire pawn structure was broken. In some ways, Black seemed to have violated many of the major principles of chess opening theory. But he had the initiative and that pawn on d3 was problematic for White.

The fact that Nakamura had consumed nearly an hour more on his clock than Dubov also had to be troubling for him. Afterward, Nakamura said of the opening, "I knew that Daniil would surprise me, but I did not quite expect him to play 20 moves or something without really thinking at all."

Nakamura finally managed to surround and win the pawn on d3, but only by allowing Dubov's queen to infiltrate on the queenside. The players agreed to a draw soon after in a position in which Black's dynamically placed pieces offered compensation for his ruined pawn structure.

The first game to finish was between Peter Svidler and Radoslaw Wojtaszek of Poland. The opening was a Sicilian Defense, but Svidler deviated early with the unusual retreat 5 Bd3. He soon had a good position, however, as he slowly expanded in the center, seizing space.

On Move 18, Svidler erred with 18 b4. Wojtaszek could have played 18... ab4 and after 19 Nb4 Be4! 20 Be4 d5. But Wojtaszek missed his chance and instead played 18... Qa7. The players agreed to a draw two moves later.

In an interview afterward, Svidler said he offered a draw because he did not understand what sort of plan he should have in the position, despite having extra space. He also said that he had a headache, which contributed to his decision.

Alexander Grischuk, who is known for chronically being in time pressure, played the opening quickly against Wesley So, the other American in the field. On Move 14, given a choice, he quickly played a surprising recapture – 14 ed4, instead of Qd4, voluntarily accepting an isolated queen pawn. The speed of his play indicated that it was preparation. So played carefully, but Grischuk managed to gain an endgame with the bishop pair, which is often dangerous. Nevertheless, So navigated the complications successfully, even winning a pawn, but a draw seemed to be the most likely outcome.

In the final game between Wei Yi of China and Ian Nepomniachtchi, the opening was the Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defense. Nepomniachtchi is known to be an expert in this opening, but he had to be careful as Wei gained a slight edge because of a nagging space advantage. Wei was unable to make much of his edge, however, and the players agreed to a draw because of repetition on Move 31.

The matches resume Tuesday at 3 PM local time. The broadcast can be viewed free and live at worldchess.com.
