Vachier-Lagrave, Assaubayeva Win FIDE World Blitz Chess Championships

[ad_1]

GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave finished first in the World Blitz Chess Championship with 15/21 in the Swiss tournament, after defeating GM Jan-Krzysztof Duda in their third blitz playoff game. Duda finished in second and GM Alireza Firouzja finished in third, each with 15/21 as well. With the same controversial tiebreak system as the rapid event, Firouzja did not play in the playoff games due to tiebreaks. 

17-year-old Kazakh IM Bibisara Assaubayeva continued a nearly unstoppable streak of wins to finish first with 14/17, having an entire round to spare. GM Alexandra Kosteniuk finished in second with 12.5/17 and GM Valentina Gunina finished in third with 12/17. IM Polina Shuvalova, who finished with 12 points, had the inferior tiebreak and did not place in third. 

Chess.com’s full report on the tournament’s conclusion with photos, quotes, and analysis by GM Dejan Bojkov will be published shortly.
