|Mar-08-19|| ||chessgames.com: Games have now been added for the Prague Chess Festival Masters and Challengers sections, and we'll include the Open section results as they become available. For news & details, see the official site at http://praguechessfestival.com/|
|Mar-11-19|| ||Sokrates: A quite homogeneous group of primarily just-below-2740 players. Impressive start by Duda.|
|Mar-11-19|| ||Steve.Patzer: I am amazed at how you are able to keep up with all the tournaments taking place. How many people work on your site?|
|Mar-11-19|| ||sonia91: <Steve.Patzer: I am amazed at how you are able to keep up with all the tournaments taking place.>|
Some users inform of the currently underway tournaments in the chessgames.com chessforum.
<WinKing> asked for a forum for this festival, I asked for the World Teams.
|Mar-12-19|| ||Everett: Thank you Chessgmaes.com|
|Mar-13-19|| ||morfishine: Thank you <chessgames.com>! And this is turning out to be a really great tournament!|
|Mar-13-19|| ||Tabanus: The Prague organizers are using http://chess-results.com/tnr420482.... too.|
|Mar-14-19|| ||Steve.Patzer: Rapport and Shankland have gone ballistic!|
|Mar-15-19|| ||sonia91: Congratulations to Nikita Vitiugov!
I think this is only his third major victory, after Gibraltar 2013 and Grenke Open 2017.
|Mar-16-19|| ||Sokrates: Yes, well done Vitiugov. However, when the winner has a score of +2 =7 with 4 players just half a point behind him, we can safely say that this was a tournament with quite equal players. 8 players are 1½ point or less behind the winner. |
I am sorry for Duda, who had a fabulous start with 3 wins, but then suffered 2 defeats. Special price to him for having the fewest draws! :-)
|Mar-18-19|| ||Lech Kulejewski: Congratulations to Vitiugov. As in Grenke, in Prague he presented fantastic ideas in the opening; unfortunately, the greatest against Duda in the Dragodorf..If You remember, in Grenke it was French Classical. Anyway, it's really nice experience for us, polish chess fans, to kibitz our compatriots fighting the world top GM's on even conditions....it never happened in my life before, and I'm 65....|
|Mar-18-19|| ||Sokrates: <Lech Kulejewski> |
Indeed, this tournament was a triumph for Polish chess and I fully understand your pride and enthusiasm. A fine event it was.
<... fighting the world top GM's ...> depends, though, how far down the ELO list you'd go by the definition "world top". Vitiugov and Duda are no. 20 and 21 on the live ratings now.
