ČEZ CHESS TROPHY 2017

The world champion wins in Prague

[20.06.2017 00:00:00] - The world rapid chess champion, Vassily Ivanchuk, won the twelve-game match in rapid chess against the best Czech chess player, David Navara. The Ukrainian grandmaster won 7,5:4,5 proving to be more experienced in practical skills. Even though the Czech representative managed more often to get a favourable position, Ivanchuk was better in managing the time and using his strengths; hence he was able to get through worse positions and score from better positions. Navara won one game, lost four and seven games were even.

Bellow, you can see four pictures taken at this year festival, which took place at Michna Palace in Kampa, Prague. And which was once again held by the Prague Chess Society. It was already fifteenth match, which was prepared for the best chess player by Pavel Matocha and his trustworthy colleagues.

The festival was opened by the mayor of Prague 1, Oldřich Lomecký, by d2-d4 move. “I love beautiful ladies as well as the queen´s gambit and so I am opening this game with queen´s pawn.”, noted Lomecký commenting on his opening move. Apart from the grandmasters match, which was discussed under the lead of grandmaster Cvek in the commentator room, with the aid or other Czech representatives and foreign guests (such as Vlastimil Hort, Genna Sosonko, Viktor Láznička, Dmitrij Plisecký, Vojtěch Plát, Martin Petr, Michal Konopka or Sergej Movsesjan), other interesting program was prepared for the audience.
