25th Keres Memorial – ACP Open Day 1

Keres

The first day of the 25th Keres Memorial – ACP Open has concluded. In addition to the main rapid tournament, there were various other organized events that celebrated the anniversary of Paul Keres’ birth – a new coin and a new stamp, several presentations and speeches in memory of the great chess mind, set to live classical music.

In the first of the main event, 4 rounds have been played. There are 5 players with perfect scores so far – GM Kiril Georgiev (Bulgaria), Daniel Friedman (Germany), Victor Mikhalevski (Israel) GM Jan-Krzysztof Duda (Poland), and Aleksey Goganov (Russia). Overall, the first place is shared between 5 people from 5 different nations. First seed GM Svidler from Russia is currently in 22nd place with 3 points.

The first day of the Keres Memorial has shown us some spectacular games. A highlight was FM Krupenski, in his game against Boris Gelfand, demonstrated admirable play, with a great queen sacrifice.
