Basque Day 1: Results after Round 6

In 2016 IMSA Elite Mind game chess field, the Basque competition has been started. Basque game has been developed for recent years and welcomed by an increasing number of professional players. Basically, it requires players to play two games simultaneously, with one black and one white but the time limit remains the same. It’s both mental and physical demanding, and besides, players must remain clear at the mind during the competition, since the switch between two games are extremely fast and other game may frequently interrupt. In time panic, players could hardly focus on both two games, which made the competition process full of excitement to watch.  

During the first 3 rounds, the VIP player on men’s group was undoubtedly Tomashevsky, who won two rounds in a row to beat Wang Hao and Ponomariov with all boards triumphed. In round 3, he drawed with Navara with 1-1 and currently leading the board with 5/6, followed by Ding Liren and Navara who scored 4 / 6.

Comparing to male’s player’s fierce competition, the female player seemingly relying more on ‘momentum’. On day-1 of the blitz game competition, Russia female player Gunina Valentina made an absolutely unbelievable record: winning ten games in a row and scored 10/10 full marks! Even though she did on some sorts of the tough position during the games, she handled the difficulty perfectly and won the games ultimately. Russia Player Lagno scored 7.0/10 and on second position currently, followed by Antoaneta Stefanova who scored 6.5/10 overall. Gunina Valentina undoubtedly was the super star for today, and many spectators would like to see if she could continue her super hot-streak in the following day.
