The 39th Dortmund Chess Meeting took place 21st-31st July 2011 in the theater at Hiltropwall. Vladimir Kramnik was the convincing winner of the main GM group with 7/10 only spoiled with a final round loss to Nakamura. He was a point and a half clear of Le Quang Liem. Young Dutchman Robin van Kampen won the Helmut-Kohls-Turnier. Mikhail Zaitsev won the A-Group.

Nakamura gets small compensation with final round win against Dortmund winner Kramnik (10)

Vladimir Kramnik slightly took the shine off his fantastic performance at the 39th Dortmund tournament by losing to Hikaru Nakamura in the final round. Kramnik had already secured first place and his 10th Dortmund title so the result was not of much relevance. Kramnik made a rather speculative but not unsound sacrifice of a piece against Nakamura but this is not in his style and he quickly went astray. Although Nakamura was far from clinical in finishing the game off he brought the point home securely enough in the end. Le Quang Liem - Anish Giri and Georg Meier - Ruslan Ponomariov were fairly uninteresting draws. Le Quang Liem was in clear second place on 5.5/10. Young Dutchman Robin van Kampen won the Helmut-Kohls-Turnier. Mikhail Zaitsev by far and away the highest rated player won the Open on 7.5/9 half a point clear of Glenn De Schampheleire.
