Nov-01-16  sonia91: Congrats on winning the Chigorin Memorial for the second year in a row! He scored 8/9: <Chigorin Memorial: Alekseenko wins; Abdusattorov shines>
Nov-04-17  diagonal: thanks, <Sonia 91>, and congrats again to <Kirill>!

Alekseenko is now triple winner of the Chigroin Memorial (Open):

<Chigorin Memorial 2015>: Kirill Alekseenko, Chanda Sandipan and Dmitry Kokarev tied for the first place at 7.5 points each but Kirill Alekseenko lifted the trophy on a superior tie-break score. Khalifman finished shared fourth.

<Chigorin Memorial 2016>: Kirill Alekseenko scored 8/9 to take a convincing clear first place. Romanov, Kamsky, and Volkov were joint second to fourth. Top-seed was Smirin.

<Chigorin Memorial 2017>: Kirill Alekseenko edged out David Paravyan, SP Sethuraman and Alexey Sarana on tie-break after all scored 7.5 points / 9 rounds. Many participants of the massive horde of strong 'anonymous' players from the former Soviet areas and promising youngsters: Uzbek talent, 13-year-young Nodirbek Abdusattorov, became the second youngest chess player behind Sergey Karjakin to become a GM.

<The Chigorin Memorial Tournament in St. Petersburg, Russia, has a long tradition. It is named after the founder of the Soviet Chess School Mikhail Chigorin.

Akiba Rubinstein, Emanuel Lasker, Mikhail Botvinnik, Vassily Smyslov, Mikhail Tal, Boris Spassky, Svetozar Gligoric, Mark Taimanov, Lev Polugaevsky, and Viktor Korchnoi — Each of them did something special that changed our sport in numerous ways. They may have all passed away, but their ideas still lead generations of chessplayers forward. Something else is common between these greats: All have won the Chigorin Memorial tournament at some point in their lives, as well as for instance Alexander Beliavsky (closed series) or Alexander Grischuk (open series).

Record winner of the strong international invitation Chigorin Memorial is Lev Polugaevsky who won four times, in 1963, 1974, and 1976 in Sochi, plus 1972 in Kislovodsk (the closed editions are not to mix with the later and ongoing Open tournament series in St. Petersburg).

As Sergey Volkov who (co-)won in 1998, 1999, and in 2009, Kirill Alekseenko is now a triple winner of the Chigorin Memorial. He claimed clear first or first on tie-break in 2015, 2016 & 2017.>
