Hi everyone,

The Carlsen roller coaster rushes on at the 2011 Accentus Biel Masters with Alexei Shirov losing to the World No. 1 in the seventh round. Also, Alexander Morozevich beat Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Yannick Pelletier lost to Fabiano Caruana. 

For those who came in late, the 2011 Biel Chess Festival is taking place from July 16 to 29, in a number of groups: the Master Tournament (eleven rounds Swiss); the Main Tournament (nine rounds Swiss); a Rapid and a Blitz tournament; Chess960; Youth etc. The main event is the Accentus Grandmaster Tournament with six very strong grandmasters playing a double round robin: Magnus Carlsen, Maximee Vachier-Lagrave, Alexei Shirov, Fabiano Caruana, Alexander Morozevich and Yannick Pelletier.
