  4. Champions Showdown 9LX 2019 - Games and Results

    The Champions Showdown 9LX took place in Saint Louis 2nd to 5th September 2019. Four matches using a version of the Chess 960 variant with both rapid and blitz games. Fabiano Caruana defeated Garry Kasparov 19-7, Hikaru Nakamura beat Levon Aronian 14.5-11.5, Wesley So beat Veselin Topalov 18-8 and Peter Svider beat Leinier Dominguez Perez 15.5-10.5. I don't have software that can display these games on my website but I do have the games split into files of rapid and blitz.

    Kasparov bit off a little more than he could chew against world number 2 Fabiano Caruana but it would be a great shame if he took that as a sign to stop playing altogether. I'm sure he'd be fine against players even a little further down the rating list and his loss in game two of the rapid when he played very powerfully up to a point was particularly unfortunate. There's a traditional place in tournament chess for the older former World Champions and Kasparov is certainly capable of fulfilling such a role, players such as Lasker, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian, Spassky, Tal and Karpov come to mind. I might even call such a role an important one.

  5. 7th Sinquefield Cup 2019 - Games and Results

    The 7th Sinquefield Cup took place 17th to 30th August 2019. Players: Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana, Ding Liren, Anish Giri, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Wesley So, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Levon Aronian, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Viswanathan Anand, Sergey Karjakin and Hikaru Nakamura. Ding Liren beat Magnus Carlsen 3-1 in a tie-break to win the tournament after they tied on 6.5/11 - two rapid games were drawn, Ding won both blitz games. Ding thus ended a long run of tie-break victories for Magnus Carlsen going back to Aronian's win against him in the Candidates of 2007.
