Final Rapid Grand Prix of Russia 2012 (Games and Results)

Final Rapid Grand Prix of Russia 2012

The Final of the Rapid Grand Prix of Russia took place 23rd-24th December 2012. Alexey Dreev beat Vladislav Artemiev in the final 1.5-0.5. Game 1 Dreev-Artemiev: Slav drawn by repetition after 53 moves. Game 2 Artemiev-Dreev. Caro-Kann where Dreev seemed to catch out his opponent and was soon winning. Dreev won the exchange and although the win wasn't quite as quick as it might have been it was fairly certain. This is rapid specialist Dreev's second title in just over week after winning the European Rapid Championship the previous Sunday. Dreev will also no doubt be looking forward to the Aeroflot Open in February 2013 which has been converted to a rapid too.
