Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Corus Group B (2002)

Played in the De Moriaan community centre, Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands from January 15 (Round 1) to January 27 (Round 11), with rest days on January 18 and 23. In addition to teenager Werle and the other IM's and GM's, there were three female players: Stefanova, Zhaoqin Peng, and Skripchenko. The event was won by Krasenkow with 8/11. Krasenkow had a 2702 rating only a few years earlier. He had been one of the world's top 10 players and a FIDE World Championship quarterfinalist, but he was now second seed behind Sokolov. The quiet-spoken Russian émigré went from a high of 2731 into a freefall with a drop to 2573 and obscurity by the July 2001 list. He had played well in late 2001, however, and with this win he got another crack at the elite, as his victory guaranteed him an automatic placing in next year’s Group A.
