Star Mixed Pair International Chengdu 2014 (Games and Results)

Star Mixed Pair International Chengdu 2014

The Star Mixed Pairs International chess tournament took place in Chengdu, China 6th to 9th 2014. This tournament saw 6 pairs of Men and Women play a 6 round all-play-all rapid (unsure of the time control) Teams: 1) Xu, Yuhua:Yu, Shaoteng 2) Maric, Alisa:Ye, Jiangchuan 3) Zhu, Chen:Seirawan, Yasser 4) Liu, Shilan:Xie, Jun 5) Hou Yifan:Short, Nigel D 6) Chiburdanidze, Maia:Jussupow, Artur. Nigel Short and Hou Yifan were favourites to win after being paired together but as Short said afterwards "Basically we blew it yesterday with a collective collapse of concentration against Yasser Seirawan and Zhu Chen, turning a clearly better position into a dead lost one in the space of about two minutes (and half a dozen moves)." They finished 3rd behind the teams of Zhu, Chen/Yasser Seirawan and Xu Yuhua/Yu Shaoteng both finishing on 4/5.
