The Chess Classic Mainz took place 27th July - 2nd August 2009 in the Rheingoldhalle in Mainz. Levon Aronian lost his Chess960 Rapid World Championship to Hikaru Nakamura but was more than compensated by winning the 14th Grenkeleasing Rapid World Championship instead. Shakhriyar Mamedyarov won a keenly fought Ordix Open with a record equalling score of 10/11.
