Max Euwe Matches 2010

5 matches between experienced Grandmasters and Youngsters took place at the Max Euwe Centrum in Amsterdam 13th-16th May 2010. The top match was between Nigel Short and Anish Giri.

Nigel Short finally broke through in game three to take the lead 2.5-1.5 with a game to go. Short played a Veresov and a very sharp position emerged. However Giri blundered badly on move 14 and Short made no mistake. Giri leveled in the final game after Short's Chigorin Defence came under pressure almost right from the start although later there seemed to alternatives to break the bind, some of which might have been better than the game.

Other scores: Lubomir Ftacnik 3-1 Robin van Kampen, Yasser Seirawan 2.5-1.5 Benjamin Bok, Sebastian Siebrecht 2.5-1.5 Lisa Schut and Dennis de Vreugt 4-0 Anne Haast.

Lisa Schut wins in Round 2. Giri Survives (2)
