48th Biel Chess Festival 2015 (Games and Results)

48th Biel Chess Festival 2015

The 48th Biel Chess Festival took place Monday 20th Jul 2015 - Thursday 30th Jul 2015. Players in the main GM group: Michael Adams, Radoslaw Wojtaszek, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, David Navara, Pavel Eljanov and Richard Rapport. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave took clear first on 6.5/10 after a nervy final round where he won and Radoslaw Wojtaszek failed to convert a winning position. The event will also probably be remembered for the complete collapse of Richard Rapport who lost all his second half games. There's always a danger when inviting creative players that they're out of form that they'll suffer multiple losses but this was an extreme example but surely better to risk this than invite someone very solid who is all but guaranteed to draw most of their games. In addition there is a master open which finishes on Friday.
