Shirov plays Xtracon Chess Open 2016

07-12-2015 22:09

We are proud to present GM Alexei Shirov in the field of strong chessplayers that will compete for the first prize in Xtracon Chess Open 2016. The 43 year old Latvian has been as high as number 4 on the world ranking and in January 2008 he reached his highest rating ever: 2755!

Shirov became Grandmaster in 1990 and has collected a lot of tournament wins through the years. His finest result was the victory in M-Tel Masters 2009 ahead of Carlsen og Topalov. In 1998 he beat Kramnik in a match to select the World Championship challenger for Kasparov. However the Kasparov-Shirov match was never played. He also made an attempt at a World Championship title in 2000, where he lost to Anand at the final of the FIDE World Chess Championship.

Shirov played first board for Latvia at the Chess Olympiad in Tromsø and he has played 4 times for Latvia. In the period from 1996 to 2010 he represented Spain with 7 appearances.

It is the first time Shirov is playing a tournament in Denmark since Kerteminde 1991 where he took first place ahead of Curt Hansen. We are looking forward to enjoy his entertaining style of play at Xtracon Chess Open 2016.

Shirov's games, results and much more.
