Chess Train 2014

The new king of the train

[14.10.2014 00:00:00] - You could hardly imagine more dramatic ending. David Kaňovský had definitely the best start of the fifth day. He won the 10th round and so he was one point ahead of the three grandmasters. But...

But don´t count your chicken before they hatch. David Kaňovský surrendered during the last two rounds and he did not even make it to the podium. The final result was that the winner of the Chess Train 2013, Vlastimil Hort, was 3rd, the winner of the Chess Train 2012, Martin Petr, was 2nd and Ian Rogers was 1st.

So the Australian grandmaster won the dramatic tournament full of surprises and during the closing ceremony he said that he would gladly dedicate his victory to recently passed Břetislav Modr, who repeatedly tempted him to come to the Chess Train.

The best one among women was Kristýna Havlíková and among the teams it definitely was the Fifty Moves. Complete results can be found here.

The closing ceremony was held in Government lounge of Prague Main Station and it was held by deputy CEO of Czech railways Pavel Krtek who promised to the participants of the Chess Train 2014 that the same tournament will also be next year and that they can save the dates from 9th to 13th October 2015 for the trip from Prague to Dresden, Wroclaw, Bratislava, Viena and then back to Prague.

The photo gallery of the Chess Train can be found here.
