Artemiev wins European Hybrid Qualification Tournament

by ChessBase
5/31/2021 – 264 players started in the European Hybrid Qualification Tournament. The first three rounds of this knock-out tournament consisted of 2-game matches (followed by a blitz-tiebreak and an Armageddon game, if necessary) and the 36 players, who were still in the race after the third round, qualified for the World Cup 2021, which will take place in Sochi, Russia, from 10 Juli to 6 August 2021. These 36 also played a 9-round Swiss blitz tournament (10+3) for prizes and placement. After nine rounds Vladislav Artemiev (pictured) and Aleksandar Indjic both had 6.5/9 and shared first place but Artemiev had the better tiebreak and won the tournament. | Photo: Vladimir Barsky

At Leonilo: It's sci fi book reference? People leave the Earth only to return to an empty planet? Sounds interesting.

Did anyone notice in the picture, that Artemiev is wearing a ring and a T shirt that says "Forever Free"?
