Время публикации: 09.07.2012 18:43 | Последнее обновление: 09.07.2012 18:43

The first circle of the World Blitz Championship has finished in Astana. The winner of the Rapid Championship Sergey Karjakin was leading for most of the race, however, two defeats in a row - against Carlsen and Ivanchuk - determined the new leader.

Norwegian rating favourite's start was unexpectedly unsuccessful: a loss against Dmitry Andreikin wasn't the only lost point. However, closer to the end of the playing day Carlsen gained several important victories and finished 5th.

The most stably playing Grischuk headed the top of the table 1 point ahead of his chasers. 

Take a look at Grischuk's victories against Carlsen, Ivanchuk, Morozevich and others.
