Strong chess games from Sigeman Chess Tournament first two rounds

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Here are the strong games of two rounds from the ongoing Sigeman Chess Tournament 2011. After two of the five rounds to be played, Anish Giri, Wesley So and Hans Tikkanen are sharing the lead with 1.5/2, followed by Alexei Shirov (1), Johnny Hector (0.5) and Nils Grandelius (0). You can see the strong games in our pop-down game player. The 19th Sigeman Chess Tournament is taking place from June 9-13 in the City (‘Hipp’) Theater of Malmö, Sweden. It’s organized by the Limhamn Chess Club and like last year, six players play each other in a single round-robin tournament. The defending champion is Anish Giri. You can access the official website here.
