World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships 2017

"Never guess what happened in my game" Carlsen explains his Inarkiev game to his rivals. Photo © | http://riyadh2017.fide.com

The World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships took place 26th to 30th December 2017.

In the Rapid event Viswanathan Anand beat Vladimir Fedoseev 1.5-0.5 in a bitlz tie-break to win the title. Anand took a quick draw in the final round and had to wait for other results before knowing he was in a tie-break, Magnus Carlsen shared the lead with him but lost to Alexander Grischuk. Anand last won the rapid title in 2003. Ju Wenjun led the women's rapid for much of the event and took a quick draw to ensure the title in the final round.

The blitz championship was won by Magnus Carlsen who was two points behind the leader Sergey Karjakin going into the final day but only took 4 rounds to reach the lead. Carlsen scored 8.5/9 to secure the title with a round to spare finishing on a score of 16 points.. Karjakin finished second and Viswanathan Anand added a bronze medal to his gold in the rapid, both finished on 14.5 points.

I have corrected the results to many games in the PGN files.
