Vojtěch Plát and Karolina Pilsova win Czech Championships

Vojtěch Plát (pictured above) and Karolina Pilsova won the Czech chess championship that took place in Zlin, a city in southeastern Moravia. Both events were ten-player round-robins with classical time control running from September 11-19 (women) and September 17-26 (open).

With two top-rated Czech players (David Navara and Viktor Laznicka) missing in the open competition, Vojtěch Plát had a great showing. The 27-year old GM from Prostejov scored 6½ points, earned the second national title in his career and became the only unbeaten participant in the tournament.

GMs Štěpán Žilka and Jan Krejčí finished just a half point behind the champion. Žilka who had a slightly better Sonneborn-Berger took silver, whearas Krejčí had to settle for bronze.

By an odd coincidence, in the women’s tournament, the champion Karolina Pilsova also netted 6½  out of 9 and suffered no defeats either. Karin Nemcova and Magdalena Miturova tied for the second place with the former taking silver thanks to better tiebreaks.
