Grischuk Defeats Nepomniachtchi In Exciting Speed Chess Battle

Grischuk Defeats Nepomniachtchi In Exciting Speed Chess Battle

GM Alexander Grischuk showed his formidable blitz skill by defeating his compatriot GM Ian Nepomniachtchi in the most brilliant and complicated Speed Chess Championship match of the season.

The match outcome was a triumph of statistics: 65 percent of participants in the fantasy prediction contest chose Grischuk over Nepo. The SmarterChess match prediction model considered Grischuk the favorite with 63 percent certainty and his score 17.5/28 makes exactly 63 percent of possible points.

The statistics cannot fully grasp what happened on board, especially in the first third of the match, as Nepo continually got positional and material advantages, and played much faster. However, with cunning defense Grischuk minimized the damage and after 1.5 hours the score was even.

Nepo himself described what happened in the remainder of the match: "I was really mad at some point about this and that's why I couldn't control my emotions too well in the 3+1 section and at some point I started tilting and it never goes well. I lost that section minus-three and Sasha is really better in bullet. It was a logical outcome."

With this win, Grischuk advances to the Speed Chess quarterfinals, where he will play the winner of the GM Sergey Karjakin vs. GM Jan-Krzysztof Duda match, where Karjakin is a clear favorite. Grischuk said that GM Magnus Carlsen is clear number-one in blitz and Karjakin shares 2-3 with Nakamura, but such a matchup is OK for him: "I want to play with the strongest," he said. 

As for the prizes, Grischuk earned $1,666.95 and Nepomniachtchi: $460.05. Of the total prize fund, $127 was donated by the chess community on Twitch.
