M.Chigorin Memorial 2012: Areschenko and Socko stand apart
11.06.2012 10:42

Another important game was Alexander Shimanov against Alexander Areschenko (drawn)

Going into the final round eight players shared first with 6.5/8 and it was a hard fought round as they each tried to be the one to make a difference and get that larger share of the plunder. Only two were able to shine and share the top honors: Ukrainian Alexander Areschenko who bested Alexander Lenderman, and Polish Bartosz Socko who overcame Ilia Smirin. Final report and games.
Although there might not be any Super GM round-robins underway, there is no lack of good chess to enjoy at Playchess, whether it be rapid games or classical. Among the events currently running is the traditional Chigorin Memorial held in St. Petersburg, Russia, which also serves as a stage of the Russian Cup. It is a swiss tourney over nine rounds, and as one would expect of the chess-saturated country, it has a generous prize fund of 40 thousand Euros, and includes a plethora of very strong players, including four rated 2700, the most famous of whom is Mr. Fire-on-the-Board Shirov.
Going into the final round eight players shared first with 6.5/8 and it was a hard fought round as they each tried to be the one to make a difference and get that larger share of the plunder. Of the eight players, only two were able to shine, and share the top honors: Ukrainian Alexander Areschenko (2718) who bested Alexander Lenderman (2614), and Polish Bartosz Socko (2619) who overcame Ilia Smirin (2648). Areschenko had the better tiebreak and came first with a 2784 performance, while Socko was second with a 2747 performance.
As to IM Anton Demchenko (2610), one of the highlights of the previous report, he drew his game with Boris Grachev (2672), and came in fourth with 7.0/9 and a 2746 TPR. In third was Alexander Shimanov, also on 7.0/9.
