Quang Liem impresses but comes up short at St Louis GCT

VOV.VN - Grandmaster Le Quang Liem, impressed but failed to win when it counted at the Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz tournament, the newest stop on the 2017 Grand Chess Tour, featuring total prize money of US$150,000.

At the event, featuring six of the 2017 Grand Chess Tour players and four wildcard picks, players of both past and present faced off in the Chess Capital during what is perhaps the most prestigious chess tournament hosted on US soil this year.

The top prize of US$37,500 went to Armenia’s Aronian Levon, who scored 24.5 points in 27 games during the August 14-19 competition.

Quang Liem, Fabiano Caruana and Dominguez Perez Leinier all managed to garner 16.5 points each, which was good enough for a fifth-place tie and US$10,000 in winnings, after nine rapid games and 18 blitz matches.
