ACP Chess Rapid Knockout: Alexander Grischuk wins Battle of Nerves vs Ian Nepomniachtchi in Final
The high-energy ACP Rapid Chess Knockout has just concluded in Riga, Latvia. The final was an exciting battle of nerves with Alexander Grischuk beating fellow Russian Ian Nepomniachtchi in the final.
The entire tournament had excellent live commentary in Russian and English. There was quite a friendly atmosphere as well. In fact, that's what chess is all about. Just before the last game, Grischuk and Nepomniachtchi engaged in an animated conversation even though they were going to start the battle for the top prize within a few seconds!
