1) Introduction

My thanks to Roland Wimmer, Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Miklos Orso, Jack Peters, David Kaufman, Jan Bey and everyone else who helped with this issue.

A very interesting week of chess with the start of Dortmund, Biel and the ACP Golden Classic seeing interesting fields compete in all-play-alls. Then there are a huge number of summer opens in Europe as the season is truly under way. So I'll keep this brief. Plenty of chess to look at.

Many thanks to those who have donated so far to TWIC following my appeal after my 1000th issue. I will write to those who have contributed recently. I'm very grateful and it has made a big difference to me. If you also wish to donate to help me keep TWIC going and move it forward then you can do so via PayPal at:

Hope you enjoy this issue.

48) Liepajas Rokade 2014

The Liepajas Rokade rapid tournament took place 10th to 13th July 2014. Igor Kovalenko won with 12.5/13. Rather enfuriatingly I could have saved the live games from round 3 onwards but never for one moment imagined the organisers might not publish the games of such an important event. It's possible they may appear after the Olympiad. It would be a terrible shame to lose the games permanently.

53) Pacific Southwest Open 2014

The Pacific Southwest Open took place 4th to 6th July 2014. Enrico Sevillano won with 5/6. My thanks to Jack Peters for the games.

Levon Aronian was in Los Angeles for a four day training camp. Jack Peters reports:

The other local news is that Levon Aronian came to Los Angeles to teach at the Metropolitan Chess summer camp. Here are links to two articles about Aronian's visit to Glendale City Hall:,0,1539316.story

Glendale is a Los Angeles suburb with a high percentage (around 40%, I think) of Armenian immigrants and Armenian-Americans, including the mayor. In the third photo in the first story, you can see IM Armen Ambartsoumian (front row, fifth from right, in white shirt), the former trainer of the Armenian team; IM Andranik Matikozyan (fourth from right); and GM Melikset Khachiyan (second from right, in pink shirt). Khachiyan was Aronian's trainer in the 1990s and helped him advance from second category to IM.
