Nov-04-12  waustad: This was a fine result for Ju Wenjun, despite getting steamrolled by Ivanchuk in the semis.
Nov-04-12  MountainMatt: And a pretty fantastic result for Mr. Karpov, no? Perhaps not "biological miracle" status, but damned impressive. What were the time controls here, I wonder?
Premium Chessgames Member Time controls were rapid, 25 minutes + 10 seconds/move.

Official site (French):

Nov-05-12  Blunderdome: Aleksandra Goryachkina got crushed, but this has to be great experience for a 14-year-old, even at rapid time controls.

  HeMateMe: Is Chuck listed first, because he won a playoff of some sort?

Nah, that's just the cg software. In fact Karpov won the playoff.

  alexmagnus: Karpov won the Karpov trophy. I wonder if this is the first case of someone winning a trophy named after himself.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: I wonder if he handed himself the trophy.

  OhioChessFan: Amusing pic with Mickey Mouse and Alexandra Kosteniuk

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Oh, he's giving her the trophy. Anyway, not sure if the video works, but maybe interesting:

You're right; it's hard to win your own memorial tournament. Even Fischer couldn't do that. Or Alekhine, for that matter.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Yes, very hard to win your own memorial tournament. Since you'd be dead and all.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: Did not Korchnoi play a game against a dead guy once? Think it was Maróczy.

OK, he may only have <claimed> to do so, on further thought.

In the case of Karpov, there is also the Poikovsky Tournament, which is named after Karpov, but I don't think he ever participated in it himself.
