EICC 2010 round 9 Amber round 3

Ian Nepomniachtchi takes sole lead in European Individual Chess Champ after round 9. The clash of top rank between Ian and Jobava ended in Ian's favor. So here he goes with 7.5/9 and about seven other players with 7/9 like Sokolov,Efimenko,Baadur, Mamedov, Timofeev, Akobian and Khismatulin in his back. Rounds 10 pairing going to be extremely high tension show:

Khismatulin (RUS) 7.0 - Nepomniachtchi (RUS) 7.5
Mamedov (AZE) 7.0 - Jobava Baadur (GEO) 7.0
Akopian (ARM) 7.0 - Sokolov (BIH) 7.0
Efimenko (UKR) 7.0 - Timofeev (RUS) 7.0

Ivan Sokolov and Akopian are the player age 38+ while the rest are all below 30s. Country wise this is a six contries affair, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Armenia. We will see the winner very soon tonight.

The girls section also high heel. Viktorija Cmilyte is now on top of her stiletto with three more women trying to steal it. Round 10 top pairings :

Cmilyte (LTU) 7.5 - Anna Muzychuck (SLO) 7
Pia Cramling (SWE) 7 - Stefanova (BUL) 7

Also a four countries competition here. Chess-result for more.

Side story is the priest of Vatican, Papa Don Valerio Piro is survive with 2.5/9. All his loses are to titled opponent. He has a philosophical quotation here :
"There are a lot of connections between spiritual and chess. This game helps me to question myself repeatedly, because its philosophy is very simple. You are constantly obliged to make decisions and when you make a move you cannot take it back, while each move has its consequences. In chess you cannot cheat and when you analyze the game you have played, it is possible to make a lot of conclusions thus improving yourself not only as a chess player, but as a person in general."

Ok with that. See one of his win here.

Amber 2010
Another high drama is in Amber. The annually no-peeking and do-it-fast chess is at round 3 now. Vassily Ivanchuck is on highpoint of his roller coaster pattern in combined standing. He defeated Carlsen 1.a3 in day 1. Carlsen himself bounced back with 4 wins over Aronian and Svidler.

Report from TWIC here.

Partai ronde 9 di turnament Eropa Perorangan menghasilkan si Ian Nepomniatchi sebagai pemungut nilai terbanyak sementara. Tinggal 2 ronde lagi tetapi beliau musti bersaing ama sekitar tujuh pemain lain yang bernilai setengah di bawahnya. Pairing ronde sepuluh bisa dilihat di text bahasa Inggris di atas. Beberapa pemain dengan nilai tertinggi akan kualified buat Piala Dunia beberapa tahun mendatang. Di bagian puteri pecatur dengan nama sulit diketik (seperti Ian Nepomniathachihdc.... ahh...) Viktorija Cmilyte telah berada di puncak dan tinggal sebabak dua babak lagi boleh tidur senang. Saingannya adalah Stefanova, pecatur molek dari Bulgaria dan Pia Cramling Swedia dan Anna Muzychuck.

Sementara itu di kota Nice, turnamen catur nggak boleh lihat dan buru buru berlangsung di sana. Turnamen Amber adalah turnamen paling bergengsi di nomor ini. Pak Vassily Ivanchuck penggemar setia turnamen ini (udah main 19 kali) sementara ada di peringkat teratas setelah tiga ronde. Di hari pertama si Ivanchuck ketemu Carlsen, Carlsen bermain pembukaan 1.a3 , cukup seru tapi Ivanchuck kembali memberi pesan agar nggak usah memainkan langkah ini karena sering kalah. Mungkin Carlsen terinspirasi kemenangan Tony Miles atas juara dunia Karpov puluhan tahun lalu.
