Ordix Open

Teimur Radjabov from Azerbadjan is the winner of the 12th Ordix Open. The 18-year old won the tournament by scoring 9,5 points out of 11 games.
Radjabov did not play the FiNet Open and in the last rounds he certainly had more energy left than his colleagues who already started playing on Thursday in the Chess960 tournament.

Levon Aronian, Alexander Morozevich, Alexey Dreev, Pentala Harikrishna, Alexander Grishuk and Gabriel Sargissian shared second place with 9 points in the Ordix Open, in which the top 10 players had an average rating of 2705!  Read more >>>

Once again, the Open tournaments during the Chess Classic Mainz (9-14 August) will be the strongest worldwide in their categories. The FiNet Open in Chess960 (11-12 August) , in which the starting positions of the pieces will be known only a few minutes before the start of the game, is the only one of this sort worldwide on this level. One day later the Ordix Open will start and once again many top players will play their games in the Rheingoldhalle. The first 32 grandmasters of the starting list have an average ELO of over 2600! Far more than 100 FIDE title holders are expected to come to Mainz this year.
