Chess Train 2019

Prusikin as Marcus Aurelius

[18.10.2019 00:00:00] - While in the case of Roman Empire, Trenčín was the northernmost point of its territory, in the case of this year's Chess Train, it was the easternmost point on its way.

At the beginning of our era, when the Romans pushed the boundaries of their empire closer to the Danube River and built their ingenious system of fortifications called Limes Romanus, they gradually set up fortified camps north of the Danube, too. In Trencin they left the original proof of their presence – the memorial inscription on the vertical wall of the castle rock commemorating the victory of emperor Marcus Aurelius and his son Commodus over Quads in Laugaricium in 179 AD. According to the Latin text on the inscription 855 Roman soldiers of the II. legion led by legate Maximilian were fighting in Trencin back then.

The winner of the Battle of the Chess Train 2019 was deservedly and with great insight and a two-point lead, the German Grandmaster Michael Prusikin. He won 10 points out of eleven games. While there was no doubt about the winner of the tournament in Trenčín, the fight for the second and third place was exciting until the last round. At the end, Matias Jolowicz arrived in the capital city with the silver and IM Ladislav Langner with the bronze. The best Czech chess player David Navara came to Government Lounge at Prague's Main Station to hand over the prizes to the best players of the tournament.

Complete results here.
