St.Louis Spring Classic underway
Quick 1-Minute Summary
Now a regular feature in St.Louis chess, the Spring Classic consists of 2 round robbins of 10 players each. The top tournament is VERY strong, with Canadian GM Eric Hansen being the lowest rated player! Now that is what I call strong!
Here on this blog I will be covering the top tournament, that sees Ivanchuk as top-rated. The tournament is being held between the 2nd and 10th, with no rest days. Yesterday saw the opening round, and there were some surprises. I suppose Ivanchuk losing with the White pieces is at the head of this list.
