Mikhail Antipov won on tiebreak ahead of Jan-Krzysztof Duda (10/13), and Matthias Bluebaum took 3rd place (9/13). The three thereby qualified for World Cup (2017).

  PhilFeeley: Is Duda overweight or just wearing a bullet-proof vest?

http://wjcc2015.fide.com/2015/09/14...

Sep-15-15  Talimuzakh: Both, he probably over-ate, and overfed, reason for the belly vest.
Sep-15-15  Gryz: Surprise. It seems Mikhail Antipov won the tournament ! Both Duda and Antipov ended with 10 points. But Antipov played against "harder" opponents or something.

Duda seemed totally in control during the whole tournament. But in the last 3 rounds, he scored only 2 points while Antipov scored the full 3 points. Congratulations to Mikhail Antipov !

Sep-15-15  paavoh: Well, Antipov is a talented guy and deserves to win. He was in a big trouble in his final game against Rambaldi, only winning when the latter could not find the best way to continue his attack. So some luck involved, but great players are also lucky, eh?
Sep-15-15  fisayo123: Strange that Duda somehow ended up not winning this despite being in total control from round 1. Will be nice if Antipov and Duda could fight it out in rapid tie-breaks. Oh well. Congrats to Antipov.
Sep-15-15  dumbgai: Well played by Duda and Antipov. Disaster tournament for #2 seed Cori, who had a TPR of 2410 and lost 35 rating points.

  FSR: <HeMateMe> Fischer won the U.S. Junior Championship two years in a row, winning the first prize of a typewriter each time. He never played in the World Junior Championship.
Sep-19-15  Howard: That is correct, FSR.

By the way, the most recent issue of Chess Life states in its article on Pawn Sacrifice, that Fischer "never played in Bulgaria."

But what about Varna 1962 ? I didn't bother to email the magazine because probably at least 500 readers would have already done so.

Who needs geography class, anyway? Much more important nowadays to crib for the SATs/MCATs/whatevers than to bother about such esoteric nonsense as learning about other nations and cultures.

You just have to ask yourself: "What have they done for us lately?"

That's amazing, that this crap makes it onto this page in 2015.

  perfidious: One wonders what the organisers thought anyone might do with <two> typewriters.

The irony of Fischer never representing USA in a World Junior is that, at the beginning of 1957, Bill Lombardy was regarded as the titanic young American talent, going on to win that year's Junior with a clean score.

  FSR: <perfidious> It is interesting to compare the timelines of Fischer and Lombardy. At exactly the same time that Lombardy was sweeping the World Junior Championship (1957) (held August 3-17), Fischer was winning the 58th US Open (1957) (held August 5-17), becoming the youngest U.S. Open champion in history. At the end of the year, Fischer decisively answered the question of who was the greater of the young superstars, shocking the chess world by winning the US Championship (1957/58). Lombardy finished fourth, three points behind, losing their individual game.
Sep-20-15  RookFile: Must have been frustrating to Lombardy. You can beat 999 players out of the thousand, but a player like Fischer comes along who is head and shoulders above you in ability.

  HeMateMe: I once asked Bill Lombardy a question about Fischer, when he was standing next to me at the chess Shop, a defunct chess club in Manhattan. I think I asked him about playing chess at Jack Collin's house, a chess enthusiast who played against a lot of young USA talent. Collins might passed away that year, I think that's why I brought it up. He just looked at the ground for a moment, looked irritated and said [paraphrasing] "I did a lot to take care of Collins, shopping for him, cleaning up his place. Fischer did nothing. [for Collins]"

Jack Collins was in a wheel chair his whole life and probably needed help with ADLs. Of course I wasn't interested in who went to Piggly Wiggly to buy the TV dinners, I was hoping Lombardy might have said a word or two about playing skittles games with Bob at Jack's place. But he then quickly stepped away from me.

I think Lombardy has been facing Fischer questions his whole life, and probably doesn't like it. As mentioned above, he was quite a chess player in his own right, but Fischer blotted out the sun during his prime.

Sep-26-15  Everett: Antipov's 17th in this game gives him a pair of powerful passed pawns. Nice play from the Blumenfield.
