Battle of the Generations
As Boris Gelfand deservedly claimed one of his biggest successes ever, the rest of the old guard at the Tal Memorial failed dramatically. Struggling from day one, Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik sensationally ended up at the bottom of the table. Magnus Carlsen finished in second place, but the Norwegian criticized his play as 'too indifferent'. Hikaru Nakamura proudly led the field after six rounds and then collapsed completely. 

Interview: Boris Gelfand
At 45 years of age and buoyant after one of his finest successes ever, Boris Gelfand happily cites Viktor Kortchnoi, who told him a long time ago that he reached the pinnacle of his career at 47.

  • The Black Lion
    More than 85% of all chess games start with either 1.e4 or 1.d4. The Black Lion presents a flexible, logical and sensible way for Black to meet both of these moves. This robust, multipurpose opening system looks quiet, like a sleeping lion - hence the name. But when this predator is provoked, and the game heats up, Black eats its prey in an extremely swift and efficient way.
