In the Russian Week of Goldchess, in the Non Stop tournament, we have 2 games of Karpov, Karpov-Akopian 2006 and Karpov-Edouard 2016, both lost by white. But in Goldchess, Karpov does not lose. In both games white wins. And that is the task of the players’. Win Karpov’s position.
And it surely is worth trying, as the solutions are exceptionally beautiful. In the game Karpov-Edouard both wins are in the style that even Karpov would not be ashamed of.
Why don’t we share a bit of the secret. Game 1, for masters of blitz play. Only 5 moves to make and the time is 3 minutes. To Game 4 we invite the chess virtuosos, as here, traditionally, you need to be the embodiment of Tal. Task 5, is a game for true men. Here, you need to play strongly and decisevely, in a concrete manner. For this game the prize of $1000 and totle of Titan of Chess.
We especially invite the players from Russia.
One more thing. Task 3, position from the game Kramnik-Yifan Hou, lost by white against the Female World Champion. But, as I said, in the Russian week, no Russian chessplayer loses. Ladies and Gentlemen, here we will forcibly beat Yifan.
For this tournament, we give 50 free licenses to the Russian players. They will be distributed by the „64” Chess Magazine editorial board (applicants requested to send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org). Non Stop Edition 12 is a tournament especially for the Russian chessplayers, but obviously, if players from other countries are not afraid to compete against them, anybody can play.
The Russian Week, Karpov Day – March 25th, at Goldchess site.
We invite Everybody
