Still in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, the
FIDE Women World Rapid Championship 2014 tie for gold between Lagno and Kosteniuk (10.5/15) was decided yesterday by their single direct encounter:

WWRC 2014
Round 4
Lagno Kateryna (UKR) vs Kosteniuk Alexandra (RUS)
(15 mins + 10 secs)

Interesting game.

The FIDE Women World Blitz Championship 2014 (26-28 April) starts today, same 34 contenders, same venue, 15 Swiss pairings with both colours.

World Champion Magnus Carlsen has lost two classical games in a row for the first time since 2010 at Shamkir Chess 2014 in Azerbaijan, but came good in a final round decider.

He complained of feeling unwell after losing the fourth game to twenty-one-year-old Italian Fabiano Caruana, who in June last year also handed him his last defeat in a classical game, and turned in a feeble performance in the fifth against semi-retired Azeri Teimour Radjabov. In the end he triumphed with double wins over Shak Mamedyarov (Azerbaijan) and Hikaru Nakamura, the American No1 (who had talked of beating the world champion), and a dramatic final round win over Caruana (5.5/10).

\'Even when not in good form, I always believe in myself.\'

- Carlsen, this month, talking to Le Monde.

Opposite:

The 2014 U.S. Chess Championship & U.S. Women\'s Championship are underway (May 7 - May 20) at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis (CCSCSL).

Only hours before the first move, the United States Senate passed an official resolution naming St. Louis the National Chess Capital. The two events have narrowed fields of 12 and 10 respectively, and for the first time do not include a player over 40. After three rounds, defending women\\\'s champion Irina Krush is top with 2.5/3, but Gata Kamsky has drawn all games, a full point below the leader, Aleksandr Lenderman.

13-year-old Californian Ashritha Eswaran (FIDE Elo 1979) is playing in her first-ever U.S. Women\\\'s Championship and won her first game against WIM Viktoriya Ni with Black (opposite). The untitled hopeful now lies fifth after 3 games, with +2 -1 =0.

Kasparov has registered his candidacy for the FIDE presidency, saying, \'No western sponsor will ever be with someone who talks about aliens and visits all the worst dictatorships in the world.\'

Illyumzhinov, in the job 18 years, has missed a deadline to find sponsorship and a venue for the November Carlsen-Anand world title match, and says he may pay for it himself.

\'DUBAI: Indian chess ace Viswanathan Anand came up with a thumping victory over reigning world champion Magnus Carlsen but had to settle for the bronze medal in the World Rapid Chess Championship.

The game with Carlsen, who won Gold despite the defeat, was the talking point for thousands of chess buffs on the social media as Anand is set for a re-match with Carlsen in November to determine the next world champion.

Anand, a five-time world champion, had lost the crown to Carlsen last year.\'

June 11, one day before the 2014 FIFA World Cup opening game, and after various controversies and changes during the bidding process, FIDE announce Sochi, Russia, will be the venue for the 2014 World Chess Championship match between Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand.

Is it too soon to get excited? Do you have unwelcome guests visiting between 6th and 25th November?

“The match will not take place in a country that is under sanctions, in the region where the government is under sanctions, with a lousy prize fund and without any positive publicity,”

- Garry Kasparov, talking to Norwegian newspaper \"Dagbladet\", on the Sochi 2014 World Championship

The world\'s chess federations vote tomorrow inTromsø, Norway, to decide between him and incumbent Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. The campaign has been too dirty to say much else here.

Could this be a game changer?

@TarjeiJS: “Oh. My. God. Can’t believe what I am hearing and seeing. Kindergarten.

- Tweet from the FIDE General Assembly, and presidential election, in Tromsø. Cameras and recording equipment were banned from the proceedings.


Garry Kasparov offered FIDE US$ 10 million tomorrow if he is elected today. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov followed in his speech by offering FIDE US$ 20 million plus US$ 100,000 for the Kasparov Chess Foundation.

Result: 110 votes for Ilyumzhinov, 61 for Kasparov. Ilyumzhinov is re-elected.

Kasparov promised USD 10 million to FIDE the next day if he was elected. Woland immediately promised 20 million, but I am assuming he didn\'t say when and cleverly doesn\'t need to make good on his promise. Or he was laughing so much, we are supposed to know he was joking.

The Burundi women were banned after failing to show for rounds 7 and 8. They are unaccounted for. Tragically a Seychelles player suffered a fatal heart attack during play on the last day. Panic broke out when someone produced a fibrilllator, which resembled a weapon. An Uzbek player died the same day in his hotel.

- \'Rex Sinquefield will provide U.S. $10 million tomorrow? I will pay 20 million today!\' -

and immediately after the vote ...

- \'I can find an investment of U.S. $19.5 million for the Chess in Schools project. That\'s why announced this figure of 20 million. We can invest this. We have already several million dollars for this project. This project is existing.”

Whatever happened to the time when chess players still had the capacity to think critically? Does anyone play to get better anymore, or is it just about swiping pieces and sticking it out with your advantage to the weary end? I see more players, even on this website, hoping and paying that you make a blunder or your internet connection is unreliable and boost you than I see real playing, and players with the ability to devise and carry out strategies, regardless of material advantages. Is it just me, or has this website become a huge race for rating? I see so few players anymore with ambition to improve and have fun at the game, and an increasing amount of those who play to inflate their rating, which should be a reflecting of personal improvement, not some number beyond your skill level that sits on display for all to see but you are afraid to play in fear of someone with a much lower rating getting in a win and mucking your hard-earned trophy...-

Chess history in the making!

Fabiano Caruana continues his perfect run of wins into the second half of the second Sinquefield Cup, the strongest chess tournament ever.

1. Caruana, Fabiano 6
2. Carlsen, Magnus 3
3. Topalov, Veselin 2½
4. Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime 2½
5. Nakamura, Hikaru 2
6. Aronian, Levon 2

The Italian has now equalled Karpov\'s 1994 Linares record for starting win streak in a modern super-tournament, and overtaken Aronian to take second place in the world rankings.

Thanks for the heads up !

1 Caruana, Fabiano 8½ 2801

2 Carlsen, Magnus 5½ 2877
3 Topalov, Veselin 5 2772
4 Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime 4 2768
5 Aronian, Levon 4 2805
6 Nakamura, Hikaru 3 2787

Caruana drew the last three games, but the first of those, against Carlsen, was enough to take gold.

\"Even if he doesn\'t show up for the last two rounds, it is one of the great results of our time.\"

- Carlsen

The elo gap is closing, too.
