Arctic Chess Challenge |



Arctic Blitz won by Loek van Wely

88 players fought for eight prizes of a total value of NOK 10,000 in a few hours late Thursday. It was exciting until the last lap, but the highest rated van Wely won in the end in tie breaks ahead of IM Helgi Dam Ziska. Both had 7.5 points and tie-break points decided.

However, there was no doubt about who was the crowd favorite: the 13 year-old Alexandr Bortnik. He is definitely on even ground with the grandmasters in this discipline. As we recall, he won the trip to Tromsø by blitz games on ICC, and we have certainly not heard the last from this guy! .
