Shakhriyar Mamedyarov picks White to defeat his first opponent in 19 moves

Aeroflot Open, which had seemed to be abandoned just some months ago, has been revived in the capital of Russia. The opening ceremony has taken place yesterday evening; the photo above shows Shakhriyar Mamedyarov ready to assist the chief arbiter, Geurt Gijssen, in the drawing of colours. Today, the first round has been played.

This is already the 12th edition of the festival. The previous Aeroflots had taken place in many different locations of Moscow, including the Russia hotel, which used to be near the Red Square but has been demolished years ago. This time, the venue is the Cosmos hotel, which has already served this purpose in 2012; it is 20 minites by metro from the Moscow city center.

After the experimental rapid+blitz edition in 2013 with small starting fees, the organizers have returned to classical chess and also restored the traditional feature of the festival: everyone pays a considerable starting fee (250 euro minimum) and doesn't get the expenses covered. On the other hand, the prize fund is much more serious than in some ordinary open. Besides, the number of prizes in all the festival tournaments is big enough, so that 6/9 or even 5.5/9 will likely bring a decent prize, which isn't quite typical for Swiss-system events.

As usual, the festival consists of three Swiss tournaments ('A', 'B', and 'C'), each one completed according to the participants' ratings and having 9 rounds. The highlight is the A-tournament, where 72 players, overwhelming majority of them rated above 2500, are fighting for the prize fund of 65000 euro. Five of them have 2700+: Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (2756), Ian Nepomniachtchi (2714), Richard Rapport (2709), Francisco Vallejo (2708), Ernesto Inarkiev (2706).

The festival will end with the blitz open tournament, starting early in the morning on April 5th. The prize fund of 20000 Euro can impress, but, whereas all the players of the classical events will be allowed to enter free of charge, others will have to pay a fee of 300 Euro.

Since the first round of the A-tournament (as well as of two other opens) is already over, we are presenting the most spectacular fragments of the start. Let's begin with the rating favorite who has created a nice miniature against Russian GM Boris Savchenko.

MAMEDYAROV - B.SAVCHENKO
The Queen's Gambit Declined
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Nf3 Be7 5.Bf4 O-O 6.e3 Nbd7 7.Qc2 c5 8.Rd1 cxd4 9.Rxd4.

9...Bb4?! The main move is 9...Qa5, for example: 10.Bg3 (10.Be2? dxc4 11.Rxc4 b5! 12.Rd4 b4 13.Qa4 Qc5 14.Rc4 Qb6 led to Black's advantage in Iturrizaga - Ganguly, Jakarta 2013) 10...Nb6 11.Nd2 dxc4 12.Bxc4 Nxc4 13.Nxc4 Qa6 14.0-0 Rd8 15.Rxd8+ Bxd8 16.Ne5 Bd7 17.Nxd7 Nxd7, and Black equalized the position gradually in Vachier-Lagrave - Adams, Istanbul 2012.
10.cxd5 Nxd5 11.Bd3 h6 12.O-O Bxc3 13.bxc3 Nxf4 14.exf4 Qc7 15.Rd1 (15.Re1!?).

Black's structure is better and his position looks solid, but in fact his under-development and the bishop stuck on c8 are more serious factors. Just one automatic move was enough to lose on the spot:
15...Nc5? Another natural continuation, 15...Nf6?!, leads to an unpleasant position after 16.Ne5, since White possesses the d-file and also has a dangerous plan of arranging a battery by Qd2-Bb1-Qc2. However, 15...b6 is more accurate. Besides, there is an interesting try to simplify the position by 15...e5!?, which doesn't seem to have any direct refutation even though Black is far behind in development. For instance, 16.Re4 exf4 17.Re7 Qc5 18.Rxd7 Bxd7 19.Bh7+ Kh8 20.Rxd7 Rad8 looks quite playable for Black.
16.Bh7+! Kh8 17.Ne5. The 18.Rd8! threat is deadly now. The key line runs: 17...b6 18.Rd8 Bb7 19.R8d7! Nxd7 20.Rxd7 Qc8 21.Rxf7 winning.
17...g5 (desperation) 18.Bg6! (the most precise) 18...gxf4 (18...f6 19.Rd8 Kg7 20.fxg5 hxg5 21.Bh5 f5 22.Qc1 Ne4 23.Rd7+) 19.Qe2. 1-0

GM Vladimir Potkin, one of the coaches of the Russian Olympic team (along with Alexander Motylev), has carried out a quick spectacular attack against Mohammad Amin Tabatabaei of Iran. According to the FIDE website, the young Iranian was born in 2001 and is now ranked No.1 (2448) in the world among the players aged 14 and younger, so it will be interesting to see how he will perform in such a strong and dense field. In the first game, he has obviously lacked opening experience.

POTKIN - TABATABAEI

In the English opening, White chose a crafty line leaving his d-pawn on d2. What's the point? The next few moves will give the answer.
10...h6? This careless move is probably wrong. Maxim Rodshtein found a better reaction against his namesake, Vachier-Lagrave: 10...Ne7 (regrouping the forces similarly to the Italian game) 11.h3 c6 12.Rad1 Ng6 and drew eventually. Black's further play is also questionable.
11.Nh4! Bd7 12.a3 Qc8 13.f4! That's the answer! Were the d-pawn on d3 or d4, this powerful advance would hardly be possible, while now the a7-bishop hits the e3-rock.
13...Nd4!? 14.Qd3 Nxb3 15.fxe5 Ng4? A losing move in an already diffucult position; 15...dxe5 16.Rxf6 Nxa1 was relatively best.
16.Nd5 Nc5 17.Qc2 dxe5. If 17...Nxe5 then 18.Bxe5 dxe5 and 19.Rxf7! as in the game.

18. Rxf7! Kxf7 19.Qh7 (Black is absolutely helpless) 19...Ke6 20.Nf5! Na4 21.Nxc7+. This is 'only' mate in three, while 21.Nf4+ exf4 22.Bd5 would have mated in two. 1-0

Finally, one of the round 1 games saw a blunder which rarely occurs on a grandmaster level.

ESEN - KOROBOV

36.Nb5?? Nf4+. 0-1 (Games annotated by GM Andrey Deviatkin & IM Srinath Narayanan)

All the games of round 1 can be replayed below. Round 2 will begin tomorrow on March 28th at 12:00 GMT.

  • Ian Nepomniachtchi wins the Aeroflot Open for the second time

  • In Pardubice, Czech Republic, the main event was the open tournament A, which had 289 players including 35 GMs. 

    The first two places were occupied by the salient rating favourites - Viktor Laznicka and Sergey Movsesian. 


    Third - Robert Cvek. Photo: czechopen.net

  • The first round of the Russia-China match has taken place in Ningbo. 

  • Igor Kovalenko won the Najdorf Memorial and passed 2700

  • In Nakhchivan, the final round of the Heydar Aliyev Open tournament has just finished. There were several candidates for victory right up to the last day, but all questions were answered by Gadir Guseinov beating Sergey Tiviakov, and Eltaj Safarli overcoming Pouya Idani. As a result, both Azeri grandmasters scored seven points, but Safarli won overall on tie-break.  

    Here are the heroes' games from the live broadcast.

  • All five games were drawn in the 7th round of Norway Chess 2015. So far, it was the most peaceful round in the tournament.

  • Shamkir: the champion beats Caruana with Black 

  • Both the men's and women's matches in round two of the Russia-China match ended in draws. In both cases, the two sides exchanged blows: in the women's event, young wife Alina Kashlinskaya won, but her friend and witness at her wedding, Valentina Gunina, lost; in the men's event, Fedoseev lost, but the Wei Yi - Svidler game ended in favour of the older star, who has been shining for already two decades. 

  • In Leon, Spain, there is an annual event, which has changed its format several times and this year, the organisers preferred a knockout tournament of rapid chess, involving four grandmasters: Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Ruslan Ponomariov, Wei Yi and David Anton Guijarro.

  • In Kaliningrad, the male and female competitions at the Russian Higher League Championships are coming to an end. In both tournaments, the participants are not only fighting for the first place, but for the next four spots also, which give qualification to the super final. That is why in the last rounds there is an increased likelihood of short draws in the leading group - considering the priority task of getting in the top five, players do not want to take risks.
