Leko Wins Wijk aan Zee

When last we saw Grandmaster Peter Leko of Hnugary, he was losing the fourteenth and final game of his World Chess Championship match with Vladimir Kramnik, the defending champion. By winning that final game Kramnik tied the match and kept his title.

Well, Leko didn't stay down for long. He has now won the annual chess tournament at Wijk aan Zee, in the Netherland. Along with the annual tournaments in Linares, Spain and Dortmund, Germany, it forms a sort of “Grand Prix” of chess tournaments. Leko took clear first.

Clear second place went to two-time defending champion Viswanathan Anand of India. Anand, you might recall, had his own shot at the World Championship, against Gary Kasparov, in 1995. Kasparov was in top form that year and beat Anand handily.

Clear third went to Bulgarian Grandmaster Veselin Topalov. Topalov has been a top player for many years, though he will probably be best remembered for being on the losing end of a “Game of the Century” candidate against, surprise!, Gary Kasparov.

Kramnik finished in a big tie for fourth, raising questions once again about how motivated he is when his title isn't on the line.

In the developed world, virtually every profession makes use of computers.
However, certain professional and academic disciplines have evolved that
specialize in techniques to construct, program, and use computers.
Terminology for different professional disciplines is still somewhat fluid and
new fields emerge from time to time

Informative details on history of viagra confirm that the anti-impotency drug Viagra was actually developed by researchers with the purpose of curing angina but incidentally during clinical trails, the drug was found effective in treating erectile dysfunction in men. With clinical results demonstrating the powerful effects of Viagra in triggering off erections necessary for sexual intercourse,impotency afflicted worldwide opted for the medication and the viagra phenomenon also offered suitable assistance to them in countering erectile dysfunction. Slowly and gradually Viagra has developed a deepest level of relationship with men which has further led to an indelible association between viagra and sexuality. And right now viagra and erectile dysfunction related tidbits are popular throughout the world and erectile dysfunction afflicted men worldwide are administering Viagra under medical supervision.

Peter Leko of Hungary has won the annual Corus chess tournament in the Dutch seaside resort town of Wijk aan Zee. sportsbook Leko played a short draw today against fellow Hungarian Jud it Polgar while his nearest rival, Viswanathan Anand of India, fought to a hard draw against Russian Ivan Sokolov. Had Anand won his game against Sokolov, Anand would have shared first prize with Leko.
Leko finished with 8½ points out of 13 and Anand with 8. Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria, who was leading the tournament earlier in the week, finished third with 7½ points. Four players -- Ms. Polgar, Michael Adams of Great Britain,
bet nfl Russia's Alexander Grischuk and reigning world champion Vladimir Kramnik, also of Russia finished with 7 points each. A full point is awarded for each victory and draws are worth point each. Leko defeated Anand in the first round of the tournament on January
The sportsbook 14-player field was one of the strongest in the history of competitive chess. Eight of the nine top-ranked players in the world competed this year at Wijk aan Zee. The exception was former world champion Garry Kasparov, who is still ranked number one. Kasparov was scheduled to play a match sponsored by the governing body of international chess, FIDE, against Rustam Kasimdzhanov of Uzbekistan aimed at reunifying the world chess crown. http://www.enterbet.com However, financing for the match fell through and the match will probably not be played at all. Kasparov, angry about declining an invitation to Wijk aan Zee in order to make himself available for a match that did not materialize, has told FIDE that he is no longer interested in participating in the reunification process.
