[video] Chess News #2-5: The Amazing Mr. Ivanchuk!

As we speak it is the rest day of the M-tel Masters Chess Tournament in Sofia Bulgaria. What happened thus far in the first half of the tournament is quite amazing: Vassily Ivanchuk scored an incredible 5 out of 5! His TPR sofar is an unprecedented 3537! In an earlier post you could see how Ivanchuk beat Radjabov, today I publish 4 videos with fragments of his other wins. Although Ivanchuk has not been completely without luck, Radjabov pushed to hard in the middlegame, the game against Topalov was going back and forth and Xianghi blundered on move 7, I still think it is quite an achievement. Especially his games against Cheparinov and Aronian were impressive. Enjoy!
