Tata Steel Chess Tournament 2021 Before you is the tournament book of the Tata Steel Chess

Tournament 2021. The event that has been won in sensational fashion by the young Dutch

grandmaster Jorden van Foreest.


In a tiebreak in the third blitz game, he was just a bit faster of his  compatriot Anish Giri. The barrage

was necessary because both players very surprisingly ended with  the wonderful score of 8½ out of 13

in joint first place. With this they had left behind, among others,  World Champion Magnus Carlsen

(7½) and the number two in the world, Fabiano Caruana (8). An  unprecedented achievement,

because the tournament in Wijk aan Zee is sometimes called the  “Wimbledon of chess” of the elite



After the last round, in which Van Foreest in a  formidable way had left the Swede Nils Grandelius

chanceless, it was waiting for the game between  the Spaniard David Antón Guijarra and Anish Giri.

Our compatriot was in a bad position, lost  perhaps, but he managed to free himself from the tangled

position and gain an important half point.

It was decided beforehand that a tiebreak would be held, consisting of at least two blitz games.

Should these result in a 1-1 score, an Armageddon game would be played. This turned out to be a

nervous and blood-curdling fight, with the pieces flying around. In the end the younger of the two,

Jorden van Foreest, emerged victorious and thus the young Groninger booked the greatest success of

his still young career.


Apart from the commotion in the Dutch seaside resort of Wijk aan Zee, where the tournament was

held – under strict corona rules – the whole of the Netherlands rose to its feet when this great result

became known. Hadn’t we had to wait since 1985, when Jan Timman won the Hoogovens chess

tournament, for a Dutch chess player to stand on the highest podium? And now it was even two

players from this country who could dispute together who would take the highest honor.
