European Club Cup review by GM Alex Finkel

The European Club Cup has ended this Saturday. Three teams shared for first place with 12 points but Russian squad Tomsk 400 won the title on tiebreaks.

GM Alex Finkel provided audio commentary for this event. He also wrote an summary article about the tournament.

Tomsk gained their victory due to a great play on the low boards: Tkachiev scored 6 out of 7 on board 4, Inarkiev matched Karjakin’s performance on the last board with 5 out of 6, while Jakovenko and Smirnov on boards 3 and 5 respectively scored 5 out of 7. Aronian did a good job on board 1 scoring solid 4.5 points of 7 without a loss.

Speaking of individual performances, an undisputed hero of the event was Ivanchuk, showing another fantastic result with 6 points out of 7 on board 2 with an incredible 2940 rating performance.
