1) Introduction

My thanks to Olexandr Prohorov, Holger Lieske, Hugh Brodie, David Clayton, Gerard Demuydt and everyone else who helped with this issue.

Magnus Carlsen's patchy year continued with a loss to MVL in the Sinquefield Cup from a winning position. Carlsen struck back immediately to beat Wesley So with the black pieces and that result combined with other results actually consolidated Carlsen's lead in the rating list. No-one is finding it easy, even the world champion to maintain consistantly good results. Elsewhere Hou Yifan scored one of the best results by a woman ever in winning the Biel tournament alone. Many more interesting events than these two also.

Hope you enjoy this issue.

3) 50th Biel Chess Festival 2017

The 50th Biel Chess Festival took place 23rd July to 2nd August 2017. Players main GM event: David Navara, Pentala Harikrishna, Etienne Bacrot, Ruslan Ponomariov, Peter Leko, Alexander Morozevich, Hou Yifan, Rafael Vaganian, Nico Georgiadis and Noel Studer. There was an initial 8 player Rapid tournament including Anatoly Karpov. Hou Yifan scored the finest result of her career in taking clear first place with 6.5/9. For a similar result by a woman one would have to go back to Judit Polgar's shared first at the Essent tournament of 2006 or even Polgar's first place alone in April / May 2000 in the Japfa Classic Denpasar (Cat 16).

26) Liepajas Rokade 2017

The Liepajas Rokade tournament took place 3rd to 6th August 2017. Vladimir Kovalev won the open with 10.5/13. There was then a super tournament won by Daniel Fridman on tie-break from Igor Kovalenko. Unfortunately I forgot about this second super event and can't find an archive of games from it anywhere. Hopefully they were all saved somewhere but I fear they may be lost forever. At such a busy time merely broadcasting games and hoping someone saves them is not good enough and Latvian organisers have been particularly poor at documenting and saving material from their own events.
