25th Cannes Open 2011

Anatoly Vaisser against Viktor Korchnoi

Anatoly Vaisser against Viktor Korchnoi |*

The 25th Cannes Open took place Mon 21st Feb 2011 - Sun 27th Feb 2011. Joseph Sanchez took clear first place with 7/9. in the main section (called Pierre & Vacances). It seemed very odd that the conclusion to this event overlapped with the start of the Cappelle-la-Grande open, usually things are much more coordinated than that. Only a very tiny number of games from the open are available. Anatoly Vaisser took on Viktor Korchnoi in a legends match with two standard time-rate games and then a day with two rapid and 4 blitz games. All three phases were drawn with the players drawing both standard games, swapping victories in the rapid and then exchanging wins at the start of the blitz before two draws.

Viktor Korchnoi at 80

Europe-Echecs made a series of videos interviews with Viktor Korchnoi during the Games Festival in Cannes where he played a Match against Anatoly Legends Vaisser. This three minute video has some short quotes from the full 40 minute interview. He talks about his start, dissatisfaction with early training and more. Korchnoi is 80 today (Born March 23rd, 1931) and is a true legend of the game. Now with added part two video.
