Dortmund: Karjakin Forgot His Analysis; Other Favourites Won

The third round of the Dortmund competition was full of fighting. Perhaps it's possible to say that each of today's four wins was due to higher class. The winner of 'Aeroflot' Mateusz Bartel, who's performing unsuccessfully, wasn't able to cope with Vladimir Kramnik - the Polish remained on naught points in the table. Ruslan Ponomariov 'expelled' Georg Meier from the group of leaders. Peter Leko and Fabiano Caruana converted the bishop pair advantage with white; on top of that, Leko overpowered Jan Gustafsson in his trademark style - by positionally squeezing the opponent all over the board.

The Russian commented on the only drawn game of the round Karjakin - Naiditsch in his Twitter account, "I played too fast in the opening, having forgotten my own analysis, and due to that lost chances of the opening advantage. The end result was a draw".

  • From a sporting perspective, the key game in the sixth round of the Dortmund tournament was Ponomariov - Bartel, in which the Polish grandmaster, performing as one of the outsiders, defeated one of the leaders. The rare arrangement of the pieces in the 6.d3 variation of the Ruy Lopez, which was used by Bartel, didn't seem to promise him an easy life. White gained a tangible advantage, but Ponomariov was too slow with something: perhaps he shouldn't have rejected the typical 'Spanish' break a2-a4.

  • After yesterday's super-decisive day all games of today's Round 4 finished peacefully. The opponents had equal chances in most of the games; perhaps, the only player who has to regret about the missed chance is Peter Leko who played against Fabiano Caruana of Italy. A long theoretical variant of French defence took place in their encounter.

  • Fabiano Caruana won the tournament held in Dortmund        

  • Kramnik loses and at the same time five participants surpass him

  • The four drawn games of Round 7 of the competition held in Dortmund were overshadowed by Kramnik - Leko encounter which lasted for 7.5 hours. The former world champion played his pet Catalan opening and got what he wanted: the play for two results.

  • The game Leko - Karjakin of the sixth round, which has ended in the Dortmund tournament, can be called a real example of the XXI century chess, when everything can be analysed from the beginning to the end as a draw. The Russian wrote in his Twitter account at the end of the game, "It was a good preparation from me and Peter for todays game! It was not so creative, as it was possible. This is a modern chess. One more draw". And then he confirmed that he played according to his home analysis until the end of the game.

  • Sergey loves playing Caro-Kann for white and waits for more  

  • The penultimate round game between Kramnik and Caruana lasted for 7 hours. Russian GM had some advantage in a typical for Grunfeld endgame, but the assessment of the position changed frequently - form "closer to winning" to drawn. Caruana blundered exactly in an equal position:


  • The last game of the deciding, ninth round ended a few minutes ago in Dortmund. We'll give a detailed summary soon, but for now we would like to bring to your attention a rare occurrence in grandmasters' practice: one of the games ended with a checkmate. Vladimir Kramnik ended the tournament on this note, not leaving any chances to Georg Meier.

  • Michael Adams gained another win in Round 7 (it is still underway) of the Dortmund competition and now has six points. He outplayed Igor Henkin. Vladimir Kramnik lost his game against Dmitry Andreikin and is a full point behind the Englishman.
