European Chess Club Cup 2022 Results today, top artists of the day and latest rankings
In Mayrhofen, Austria, the 2022 European Club Cup kicked off with 17 teams in women’s competition and 70 teams in open competition. No major upheavals occurred in the first round as the top teams largely won with ease. Female favorites Monaco triumphed, however, by the narrowest of margins. Surprisingly, Vishy Anand and Magnus Carlsen drew their respective matches against lower rated opponents.
CSU ASE Superbet from Romania, which not only includes Anand, Rapport and Gukesh in its squad, but also Olympic champion Ivan Sokolov as captain, is one of the favorites to become champion. Nine of the top-ranked teams after the first round all scored at least 5.5 out of 6 points. Anand, Carlsen and Anton Korobov were among the top tips for three of those nine teams that drew on the opening day of play. Unlike Carlsen, who survived a losing position to draw against Nikita Meshkovs, Anand kept it simple and quickly simplified into a draw position.
Open Tournament Ranking (After Day 1)
The winning team in the open event will receive 9,000 euros in prize money, while the winning team in the women’s competition will receive a total of 6,000 euros. The prize pool for the women’s European Club Chess Cup competition is €15,000, while the prize pool for the open event is €25,000.
