Reggio Emilia Chess R1-Morozevich, Nakamura begin with wins

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

Hi everyone,

The 54th edition of Reggio Emilia's Chess tournament - 54th Torneo di Capodanno - has begun. The main event includes current Italian national champion Fabiano Caruana, Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Morozevich, Hikaru Nakamura, Nikita Vitiugov and Anish Giri. The 54th edition of Reggio Emilia’s tournament also has a parallel chess event with three Italian chess stars competing against three strong WGMs from Eastern Europe.

The interesting first round saw two decisive games with Caruana blundering away the game to Morozevich in time trouble and Vitiugov losing to Nakamura. .

In the women's tournament, De Rosa beat Chierici, Marina Brunello lost to Guramishvili and Iva Videnova lost to Anna Sharevich. You can access the official website at this link.

Here are two nice videos from the event. Enjoy.
