Jan-31-13  kellmano: Short goes down in game one. Live commentary of the second now:


Jan-31-13  kellmano: Great coverage. My man Williams and Krush just bouncing ideas about

  HeMateMe: Final Gibraltar standings, after the playoff?

  strifeknot: You're not James Joyce, Owen. Give it a rest.
Jan-31-13  waustad: The final round draw by Zhou Xue against Ivanchuk clinched the top female prize for her when Pia Cramling lost to Yu Yangyi. That result took her from contention for first to a many way tie for 5th after Antoaneta Stefanova, Valentina Gunina and Anna Muzychuk tied for 2nd-4th with 7 pts.

  HeMateMe: Anna M. lost an earlier Chuk/Chuk battle to Vlad. He chucked her out. It was "ground Chuk". He "Chukled", he...oh, never mind.
Jan-31-13  Ezzy: Well done Vitiugov! Superb play in the 'play offs.' Well deserved winner with the highest performance rating.

Great effort from Nigel. A hairs breadth away from winning his 4th Gibralter Open. I'm sure his 12,000 for his efforts will make him feel a little better.

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: In these tie breaks, are the top four purse amounts split equally, and the playoff is done just to actually award the tournament to a player?
Jan-31-13  Ezzy: <HeMateMe:>

Vitiugov wins first and 20,000

Vachier-Lagrave, Short and Sandipan share 2nd, 3rd and 4th prize, which amounts to 12,000 each.

Jan-31-13  Ezzy: Vachier-Lagrave looked to have big chances in the last round and missed his opportuniyt to win it outright.

Hear! Hear! Great comment. Very well said.

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: So, the playoffs were for some serious euros, and not just a trophy. I was watching some of the live feed, the playoffs. I like the setup--you see a live feed of the players, with a small chessboard sitting above them, with an arrow showing last move. I think I was watching Short-Vitiugov, a minor piece ending. Every tournament should have a set up like that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: <HeMateMe> I too liked the live covereage, except for the playoffs. Simon kept bouncing from one game to the other and I couldn't follow the moves as they came too fast and the board display kept reverting to the beginning position before going to the next move. Very frustrating to follow. Then near the end, Simon went, as he says "schizophrenic" and just lost the thread of both games so I wasn't able to follow them to the end. I'm not sure rapid games should be covered this way.
Feb-01-13  paavoh: No losses for Vitiugov here or in the play-off. Appropriately "rock solid".
Feb-01-13  Troller: <paavoh: No losses for Vitiugov here or in the play-off. Appropriately "rock solid".>

You might want to take a look at his game vs MVL then, nothing solid about that draw.

Feb-01-13  BUNA: Congratulations Nikita!
Feb-01-13  paavoh: Yep <troller>, I saw the game. Nevertheless, it was not a loss no matter which way it was played :-)

  Peligroso Patzer: The two tie-break games:

N Vitiugov vs Short, 2013, 1-0, 103; and

Short vs N Vitiugov, 2013, 1/2-1/2, 70.

Feb-04-13  14DogKnight: Happy Birthday, Nikita Vitiugov

  Alien Math: Chinese chess grandmaster stranded in Gibraltar after being blocked from UK

Women's world No 15 Ju Wenjun refused permission to board flight to London as she did not hold a transit visa

"I don't have a UK transit visa and they let me board (in Hong Kong). When I arrived in the UK, I told them I was going to play in Gibraltar at the Tradewise festival.

I showed them my airline ticket and they let me pass through. They let me show my tickets and my invitation," said Ju on the telephone from Gibraltar.
