Czech Championships (2005)
Player: Jiri Stocek
|Feb-15-05|| ||chessgames.com: We now have the 2005 Czech championship games online. David Navara won this event on tiebreaks. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||iron maiden: After Nakamura, Volokitin and Cheparniov, he's the fourth teenage winner of a major national championship in the last few months. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||weirdoid: Boy, Milos Jirovsky drew all of his games! And not a single one of them even reached move 30! Look at Vokac vs M Jirovsky, 2005 in particular. I guess even the likes of Leko, Kramnik and Gelfand could learn something from this guy. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||yoozum: Coming home from school to Czech on the results of the games was painful. The amount of short draws was unbelievable. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||fgh: Does somebody know how many points is Navara scheduled to win after this tournament? |
|Feb-16-05|| ||nikolaas: +4.1 |
|Feb-16-05|| ||Mameluk: Itīs always hard to play your friends, and Karlovy Vary is so beautiful town, but if you want to see really super drawish tournament, see Czech championship 2004.|
So Navara gains 4 points with 8/11 and loses 5 points from 0,5-1,5 against Shirov. It is evidently easier to gain elo from three 5 round tournaments than from one 15 round. I wonder whether is this right. I know that itīs because some exotic player would be rated 3200 after scoring some 25 of 27 in their national championship but still...
|Feb-18-05|| ||WTHarvey: Best finish of the bunch is Petr Haba vs Jiri Lechtynsky, imo. |
