41st World Chess Solving Championship
“The outcome of the 41st WCSC was decided early on, with Poland in 1st place and the UK 2nd. The 3rd place was quite close. Germany, only in 5th place after the first day, was able to take 3rd place with good h#- and n-rounds, Serbia being only 2 points behind in 4th place.
The individual competition was always very close with changes in 1st place for a few times: Roland Baier (after 2nd rd), Marko Filipovic (after 3rd rd), Martynas Limontas (after 4th rd). At the end Kacper Piorun (POL) wins again with only 0,5 pts ahead of Martynas Limontas (LTU) and Marko Filipovic (CRO) in 3rd place.
The young Bilguun Sumiya (MGL) won the n#-round and the youngest competitor Danila Pavlov (RUS) won the S#-round and with this result the IM-title. He is now 14 years old and the youngest IM of all time.
The senior competition was won by John Nunn (GBR).” /Axel Steinbrink/
