Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu new European Champion

7/2/2005 – You may be forgiven if you don't know the name – or maybe not. Nisipeanu was a surprise semi-finalist at the FIDE knock-out world championship in Las Vegas 1999, and he has a string of remarkable tournament wins since then. Because of his style he is known as a modern-day Tal. Liviu-Dieter won the European title. Report and games.
 

Sixth European Individual Chess Championship

The Sixth European Individual Chess Championship, a 13-round Swiss tournament, is being held from June 17 to July 3, 2005, in Warsaw, Poland. The rate of play is 90 minutes for 40 moves plus 15 minutes for the rest of the game with an increment of 30 seconds per a move, starting from move 1. The organisers are the Warsaw Foundation for Chess Development and Sport Club Polonia Warsaw, under the auspices of the European Chess Union.

The winner and new European Champion is Romanian GM Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu. He defeated his closest rival Alexander Beliavsky with the black pieces in the final round to take uncontested first place. Here is the annotated game on the official web site.

Teimour Radjabov defeated Alexey Dreev, in the same round and also with the black pieces, to take clear second.


Silver Medal winner in Warsaw: Teimour Radjabov from Baku

Fifteen-year-old Sergey Karjakin, who had been leading the event for a long stretch but then lost two games in a row, won his final game to join a group of seven players who are tied for third. They play a tiebreak round tomorrow (Saturday) to decide who gets the bronze medal.
