Levon Aronian gana el Grenke Chess Classic

24/04/2017 – Ha sido el jugador sobresaliente del Grenke Chess Classic 2017 e incluso dejó atrás a Magnus Carlsen (subcampeón) y a Fabiano Caruana (tercero). Hou Yifan, quien había mandado previamente a la mudanza desde Karlsruhe a Baden-Baden, solo logró sumar medio punto en la segunda mitad del torneo y no quedó muy contenta. Eso sí, recibió mucha simpatía y una acogida muy calurosa por parte del público.

La recta final del Grenke Chess Classic

"Hay jugadores con más talento que Magnus Carlsen", había afirmado el gran maestro ruso Alexander Morozevich la semana pasada y vio reforzada su opinión por el resultado del torneo Grenke Chess Classic. Magnus Carlsen ya había quedado fuera del grupo de posibles ganadores del torneo, antes de la última ronda. Levon Aronian encabezaba con 1,5 puntos y era inalcanzable para cualquiera de los demás.
