Essent 2007 round 1

Ponomariov and Mamedyarov win

Essent Crown group started today with two decisive games. In the top match encounter GM Mamedyarov won against the local hero GM Loek Van Wely. Mamedyarov applied pressure from the very beginning and Van Wely was in constant danger of losing b or d pawns. The flying dutchman was hanging on until move 35, where in extreme time trouble, for both players, he could not find the equalizing 36. Nf4. You can find the live comments of the game at the general Essent page.

In the other game GM Ponomariov finished without problems with GM Andriasian. Thus Ponomariov and Mamedyarov are top of the table. Tomorrow’s games are GM Van Wely – GM Ponomariov and GM Mamedyarov – GM Andiasian. The Chessdom live commentary starts at 14:00 CET.
