1) Introduction

My thanks to Roland Wimmer, Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Dave Clayton, Jakub Fuksik, Istvan Brindza, Louis Morin, Matiss Silis, Theodore Dimitriadis, Wojtek Bartelski and everyone else who helped with this issue.

I enjoyed very much Michael Adams victory in the Dortmund tournament and I certainly wasn't that surprised as I think he has been playing well for quite a little while now. This is probably Adams biggest tournament result with previously his results in the FIDE Knockouts being his best. Adams now travels to Tromso for the World Cup later in the week and must have improved his chances there. Vladimir Kramnik chased Adams most of the way before his single loss to Dmitry Andreikin but he too looks in good shape. Biel saw four of the six players tie for first and first was settled in favour of Maxime Vachier-Lagrave after a blitz and Rapid playoff. Hoang Thanh Trang won the European Women's Championship. Locally the British Championship continues along with many, many opens. This time next week as mentioned the FIDE World Cup will be under way in Tromso. Although I dislike the format there are many, many of the world's best including Aronian and Kramnik and it could be very special if the best reach the latter stages, but the two game matches make shocks almost inevitable.

Hope you enjoy this issue.


2) 46th Biel International Chess Festival 2013

The 46th Biel Chess Festival 2013 took place 22nd July to 2nd August 2013. The main GM event took place in honour of Olivier Breisacher the organiser who died just after last year's event. Indeed it has been a sad year for the event with the loss of Hans Suri, Lucio Barvas and Rino Castagna who were all closely associated with the tournament. Four players tied for first in the Breisacher Memorial with Maxime Vachier-Lagrave beating Alexander Moiseenko in a rapid match to take the title after they'd eliminated Bacrot and Liren Ding in a Blitz Semi-Final. In the Master Open Pentala Harikrishna took first ahead of Mateusz Bartel and Dragan Solak.

3) 41st Sparkassen Chess-Meeting 2013

The 41st Sparkassen Chess-Meeting took place 26th July to 4th August 2013. Michael Adams probably had his best tournament win of his career in winning with 7/9 half a point clear of Vladimir Kramnik who also scored heavily. In sad news IM Jens Kotainy was disqualified from the open being accused of receiving outside advice via his phone on the way to starting with 7/7.

29) 114th US Open 2013

The 114th US Open took place 27th July to 4th August 2013. Julio C Sadorra, Josh Friedel and Mackenzie Molner finished on 8/9. I put together a frankly terrible looking file of games from the various live coverage sources working on the idea that something is better than nothing. Maybe the organisers will have a better file later.
