1) Introduction

My thanks to Olexandr Prohorov, Holger Lieske, Yochanan Afek, Vojkan Petrovic, John Saunders, Mitko Iliev, Bjorn Ivar Karlsson, David Clayton, Dennis Monokroussos, and everyone else who helped with this issue.

Magnus Carlsen finished off his excellent year in blitz chess by beating Hikaru Nakamura 18-9 in the Speed Chess tournament. 2018 will see him defend his World Chess Championship in London in November. He next plays in the Tata Steel Masters in Wijk aan Zee starting on the 12th and he will be looking to get his chess at classical time controls back to its best. This issue is filled with the finish of traditional Christmas/New Year Festivals. Wei Yi edged out David Navara by drawing a final Armageddon game as black, the two oculdn't have been more closely matched in their match. Deep Sengupta and Yiping Lou shared first in Hastings, Kirill Alekseenko won the Rilton Cup in just a couple of the opens covered this week. Plenty to look at.

I recently celebrated my 1200th issue (TWIC issue 1200). My thanks to those who have donated, these continue to be extremely important in allowing me to keep TWIC going. If TWIC is important and useful to you please consider giving a donation.

The 2nd Vergani Cup took place 2nd to 7th January 2018. Richard Rapport won with 7/9. Rather alarmingly there are no games available yet. At the very least the games between the top seeds Rapport, Ferenc Berkes, Baadur Jobava and Anton Korobov should not be lost. I've missed very few games between the very top players but there's clearly a danger here.
