  kingfu: How do the Ukrainians do it? They win BOTH women's and men's team events. Alexander Ipatov missed winning the Junior Championship by a half point and is definitely a rising star.

I want to be a Ukrainian when I grow up.

Nov-17-13  Calar: <kingfu> Ukrainian men's team came nowhere near winning this event - in fact they are few points behind winner team (which I think is Azerbaijan).

Although one must note they played without their 3 strongest players - Ivanchuk, Ponomairov and Eljanov.

Nov-17-13  jamesmaskell: Looks like Azerbaijan just won the mens event after Andreikin helped Russia beat France.
Nov-17-13  csmath: Azeri 1, France 2, Armenia 3 if I am not mistaken.

Notable wins today:

Andreikin beats Tkachiev (Tkachiev walks into mate)

Short grinds down Gayevsky (long ending)

Bartel beats Howell

Naiditsch beats Pelletier (nice queen ending, Naiditsch has played the whole event great)

Saric beats Lupulescu

Giri beats Rusev (and Netherlands anihilates Bulgaria 3.5-0.5 without Topalov)

Ivanisevic beats Solak

Erdos beats Zhigalko

Steingrimsson beats Valejo

Nov-17-13  Calar: Chess-results.com gives these rankings:

1. Azerbaijan (14 points)
2. France (13 points)
3. Russia (13 points)
4. Armenia (13 points)
5. Hungary (12 points)

Nov-17-13  muradov: Undefeated Azerbaijan is a European Champion yet one more time! Congrats!

  kingfu: And if Chuky, Pono and Eljanov were there? Why did these guys NOT play?

How does the Ukraine produce so many great Chess players? I look for Ipatov to get up there soon with the other 2700+ rated players.

Nov-17-13  jamesmaskell: World Team Champs coming up. Kramnik and Karjakin didnt play for Russia either.

Ipatov doesnt play for Ukraine...

Nov-17-13  dx9293: <kingfu> Ukraine has wonderful trainers, a great cultural respect for chess, but also money problems.

Being a chess pro is not a bad career path there, unlike other places like the USA where people *think* they can do "better."

Nov-17-13  Refused: Well, Ipatov won't be playing for Ukraine. He plays for the Turkish Federation and seems to be happy the way things are.

The Russian Federation can't be happy with the display of their mens' Team.

Grischuk's play was rather shaky, but in the end he at least managed to post results. But esp. against Ragger he was rather lucky. Overall Grischuk looked like he really needed a rest.

Svidler was the Russian that played the best chess. Not much to criticise about his play.

Andreikin played solid but not really outstanding. Given the fact, he played board 3 in this event and will play in the next candidates tournament, well I guess he hoped for more points.

Morozevich played a bit like Grischuk, just that he did not manage to post results the way Grischuk did. I don't think he will be included in the World Team Championship.

Tomashevsky was a bit like Andreikin, solid but not really outstanding.

Depending on whether Kramnik and Karjakin will play in the next team event, Morozevich and Tomashevsky look like the most likely candidates to get dropped from the squad.

Nov-17-13  csmath: Only Svidler played efficiently. To take the first place in these events you need two killer boards and the rest stable. Russian team is with one killer board (Svidler) and one stable board (Andreikin). Not enough. Tomashevsky's results are actually quite disappointing. What was the reason Karjakin did not play? I am sure he would be able to do a lot better than Tomashevsky.
Nov-17-13  RedShield: I don't understand the individual placings based on rating performances, given on the official website at: http://etcc2013.com/tournament-info...

Aronian scored 6/9, supposedly for a RP of 2688, which should mean he would lose rating points. But http://2700chess.com/ claims he gained 1.8 points from the nine games. What's going on?

Nov-17-13  Refused: The 2.688 was the ELO average of Aronian's opposition. His TPR was 2.813 Thus he gained 1.8 points.
Nov-17-13  Refused: http://www.chess-results.com/tnr114...

If you are that curious.

Nov-17-13  RedShield: I blame the Poles for the confusion.

  PhilFeeley: Would anyone like to take a crack at explaining how these tie-breaks work? I can't find anything on Wikipedia:

Olympiad-Sonneborn-Berger-Tie-Break without lowest result (Khanty-Mansiysk) Buchholz Tie-Breaks (variabel with parameter)

Nov-19-13
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Never mind. There's something under Buchholz Tie-Breaks in Wiki. I hope there's an Excel formula for all these that the tournament organizers can use on their records.
Nov-19-13  smaragdus: Topalov - Caruana game from Round 4 is missing (in fact not a notable game at all).
Nov-19-13  Blunderdome: When is the World Team Championship?

  HeMateMe: I would love to have one of those Polaska jackets, how retro cool. Think I can get one on ebay?
