Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

The Moscow-based Center for New Technologies “Digital” hosted the Battle of Generations match between GM Daniil Dubov (2641) and GM Alexei Shirov (2685) on 2-8th December. Shirov was convincing in the classical games, winning four and drawing two for the overall 5-1 victory. The match consisted of six games with the FIDE time control 90 min/40 moves + 30 min + 30 sec (from move one).

According to the regulations, in case of a draw with regular time control, a pair of blitz games 5′+3′ would follow. Of the four blitz games Dubov won two and two were drawn. However, the blitz games are not counted toward the match score.

The match was organized by ChessTV and sponsored by businessman Oleg Skvortsov. Grandmaster Sergey Shipov provided live online commentary.
