1) Introduction

My thanks to Roland Wimmer, Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Aleksander Sokolski, Axel Fritz, Azer Mirzoev, Eduardo Serrano Salvador, Hugh Brodie, Irina Sudakova, Matiss Silis, Miklos Orso and everyone else who helped with this issue.

Magnus Carlsen sent out a strong message to Anand by winning the first Sinquefield Cup. Carlsen now will complete his preparation in private for potentially one of the most important title matches in years. The opportunity is there both for Carlsen and Anand to write a new important chapter in chess history. Rex Sinquefield confirmed his intention to hold a second event next year. Elsewhere there are plenty of other interesting events including the women's world championship where Hou Yifan leads 3-1 having won both games with black. Today Alexander Khalifman made comments which are bound to cause controversy when the match resumes in the morning he says the food is lousy, there has been no water at times and they were woken up a 1am to be told about this. I had a very busy day on Saturday with a friend visiting from the USA combined with a simul game against Gawain Jones in the Bradford Chess Festival which seemed to go very well and had many events. Not played many simuls in my life, managed a draw with Jones which goes some way to erase a very painful teenage memory of being destroyed by Murray Chandler in very few moves in a simul in Austicks Bookshop in Leeds. IM Malcolm Pein was particularly energetic playing 104 games against all-comers in 4 and a half hours.

Hope you enjoy this issue.


2) Sinquefield Cup 2013

The 1st Sinquefield Cup took place 9th to 15th of September 2013 in St Louis.

Magnus Carlsen heads to challenge for Viswanathan Anand's World Chess Championship title in November happy with his form and with a strong 4.5/6 victory in the Sinquefield Cup. This final performance can't but add to the anticipation of this match and increase Carlsen's growing profile in the US. Organiser Rex Sinquefield more or less confirmed the event next year and with more players. One imagines that this will be contingent on getting Carlsen back and he confirmed his willingness to play if the dates were right for him. It is coming up to 4 years since Carlsen won the Pearl Spring tournament in September/October 2009 the time when he became de facto number one, now he seems more than ready for his assault on the chess summit.

Carlsen was in some trouble in his final game against Levon Aronian having been outplayed in the opening. Aronian admitted to being embarrassed that he lost this final game from such a position having rushed to capitalise on his advantage. This allowed Carlsen to set up a hold able position. Later when Aronian realised he wasn't breaking through he lost the thread of the position and finally offered a draw. The position even though Aronian was a pawn up was by that stage at least slightly favourable to Carlsen and even though a draw would win the tournament Carlsen decided the was no risk to playing on. Carlsen said that he played St Louis in part to test his form prior to the world title match and this seemed a good opportunity. Finally he said he understood that winning such a game would be "pretty sweet." Having turned down the draw offer Aronian's play and position collapsed. Aronian himself wasn't that surprised Carlsen turned down the draw offer, "We're not really playing for money here, we're playing chess". However there isn't much doubt this loss was one the most painful in Aronian's career.

Hikaru Nakamura had a chance to win the tournament going into the final round but he quickly became dissatisfied with his position in a sharp struggle against Gata Kamsky. The computers suggested the lines were "equal" but it did seem Kamsky was in reality pressing. The game finished in a repetition.

Sinquefield Cup Final Standings: Carlsen 4.5/6, Nakamura 3.5, Aronian 2.5 and Kamsky 1.5.

3) ACP Cup 2013

The ACP Cup was a rapid knockout tournament in Riga that took place 13th to 15th September 2013. Time control at the initial phase was 25 mins + 10 seconds a move although there were blitz TBs 3m+2spm and Armageddon at 5mvs4m+3spm. Alexander Grischuk beat Ian Nepomniachtchi in the final only after winning a final Armageddon blitz game with white. Before that two exciting rapid games were drawn and they shared wins in the blitz. Ruslan Ponomariov finished in joint 3rd and looked impressive up to beating Nepomniatchi in the 1st semi-final game but then losing the remaining games having previously eliminated Morozevich and Mamedyarov. Peter Svidler too was going fine before running into Grischuk. There was fine live video commentary mixing Russian and English between different sessions. ACP President Emil Sutovsky and Alexei Shirov were key figures in the organisation of the event together with the Latvian Chess Federation and sponsor Rietumu Bank. It seems highly likely the event will be repeated next year. Very impressed with the whole presentation.

4) World Chess Championship Women 2013

The FIDE Women's World Chess Championship 2013 takes place in Taizhou, China. Anna Ushenina was the surprise winner in a knock-out last year and most expected to see Hou Yifan grab the title back easily in this 10 game match. However Hou's form has not been that good so the match should be interesting. Play starts at 8am UK time 11th Sept. 10 games 2 days on 1 off. Reports out of China complain about the conditions for the Ukrainian team with lousy food, no water and being woken up in the middle of the night at their hotel. This will clearly be top of the agenda at the coming press conferences.
