Magnus Carlsen harmadszor nyerte meg a Vugar Gasimov emlékversenyt

Samkirban a norvég világbajnok Magnus Carlsen elsőségével fejeződött be az 5. Vugar Gasiov emlékverseny. Az utolsó fordulóban gyorsan remizett a kínai Ding Lirennel, megőrizte félpontos előnyét. Carlsen harmadszor nyerte meg a 27 éves korában elhunyt azerbajdzsáni nagymester emlékére megrendezett viadalt. Ding Liren pályafutásának egyik legnagyobb sikere az ezüstérem. A befejező játéknapon az orosz Szergej Karjakin legyőzte a bolgár exvilágbajnok Veszelin Topalovot, harmadikként zárta szereplését. A dobogón végzettek mellett még az azerbajdzsáni Tejmur Radzsabov őrizte meg veretlenségét.

Carlsen at the press conference:
I don’t think there is any game of mine of this tournament that will enter any best-games collection but I thought the game yesterday against Giri was a nice fight. There were mistakes for sure, but it was difficult. But that’s probably the only game that I’m more or less satisfied with. There were a lot of uneventful draws for me. Normally I would be very concerned about that but at some point in the tournament I stopped caring about that and I only thought about trying to get a few wins with White and maybe not care so much about winning with Black as well. I think all of these tournaments, especially over relatively short distance as nine rounds, it has its turns, it has crucial points and for me a crucial was clearly in the seventh game against Topalov. Up till then he’d been leading the tournament. When you look at the final standings you cannot see that because both of us are far ahead of him but it was by no means obvious that I was going to win that game and if I don’t then I wouldn’t have won the tournament. I’m really happy with the result, but I think the fact that I’ve won here three times in a row is something I’m very proud of but it’s also always a bit coincidental. You cannot always control your own destiny in these tournaments.

Shamkir Chess 2018 is officially over!

Sven Magnus Øen Carlsen (Tønsberg, 1990. november 30. –) norvég sakkozó, nagymester, világbajnok a klasszikus időbeosztású sakkban (2013-tól), valamint a rapid- (2014, 2015) és villámsakkban (2009, 2014), norvég bajnok (2006), U12 korosztályos világbajnoki ezüstérmes (2002). 2014. májusban elért 2882 Élő-pontszámát minden idők legmagasabb pontszámaként tartják nyilván a sakkrekordok között. Először 2010. januárban, a férfiak között a sakktörténelemben a legfiatalabb versenyzőként, 19 évesen került a világranglista első helyére. 2013. novemberben szerezte meg a világbajnoki címet, miután a világbajnoki döntőben 6,5−3,5 arányban legyőzte az indiai Visuvanátan Ánandot. Címét a 2014-es sakkvilágbajnokságon az Ánand elleni 6,5−4,5 arányú győzelmével megvédte. Címvédését 2016. novemberben is megismételte, amikor a világbajnoki döntőben az orosz Szergej Karjakin ellen a 6–6-ra végződött mérkőzést követő rájátszásban 3–1 arányban győzött.
