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

Hello everyone,

The latest chess news from is that GM Sergey Volkov has won the 2nd International Livigno Chess Open. He was leading after Round 8 and finished off the final games nicely even though two players were right behind him barely half a point away.

During the final game, though, it was enough for him to draw against GM Svetushkin Dmitry (Hotel Cervo). Svetushkin was the winner on Thursday evening of the Grand Prix Distillati Mazzetti d’Altavilla, a blitz tournament among invited GMs which took place at Hotel Lac Salin. The blitz tournament earned him a precious crystal chessboard with pieces being little bottles with liqueur inside. The first three players also won a luxury watch each!
