Champions Showdown Chess 9LX: Aronian takes the lead

 

With a run of three consecutive wins Levon Aronian has taken the lead on the second day of the 20+10 online tournament “Champions Showdown Chess 9LX”. At this tournament, organized by the Saint Louis Chess Club, the Armenian grandmaster, with his now 4.5/6, has a half-point-lead on Magnus Carlsen, Wesley So and Hikaru Nakamura. Former world champion Garry Kasparov, on the other hand, is towards the bottom of the standings after an underwhelming second matchday.

Levon Aronjan mesterhármasal átvette a vezetést, fél pont az előnye Carlsen, So és Nakamura előtt

A Saint Louis Chess Club szervezésében zajló Chess9LX online rapidverseny második játéknapja után az örmény Levon Aronjan félpontos előnnyel vezet. Aronjan mesterhármast ért el, a hatodik fordulóban holtversenyes társa, az amerikai Leinier Dominguez Perez ellen nyert. A világbajnok Magnus Carlsent az ötödik körben az amerikai Wesley So győzte le. A játéknapot lezáró fordulóban az amerikai derbin Fabiano Caruana nyert állást rontott remire So ellen. Hármas holtverseny a második helyen. A torna doyenje, az exvilágbajnok Garri Kaszparov visszaesett az első napi bravúr után,ami nem csoda,hiszen az aktv sakktól 15 éve visszavonult. Első visszatérése 2017 ben volt, akkor 12 évvel a visszavonulása után  ült a táblához az orosz sakklegenda, Garri Kaszparov, a szintén St. Louis Rapidon vett részt. A most 57 éves Kaszparov 22 esztendős volt, amikor először világbajnoki címet nyert. 1986-tól kezdve 2005-ös visszavonulásáig szinte végig volt a világelső, 228 hónapból mindössze háromszor nem az ő nevével kezdődött a ranglista. De nem csak Kaszparov érdekes itt,hanem a sakkzseninek mondott Firouzja, Alireza, aki sereghajtó.
