Wojtaszek and Gunina get ACP wild cards for Wijk aan Zee
Grandmasters Radoslaw Wojtaszek (Poland) and Valentina Gunina (Russia) get the ACP wild cards for the participation in Tata Masters and Tata Challengers Wijk-aan-Zee respectively.
GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek was leading throughout the race, but at the end he edged GM Dmitry Jakovenko in the ACP Tour only by the narrowest margin: 1939 points for Radoslaw and 1915 points for Dmitry. Congratulations to both for a great season, and we wish Radoslaw to have a successful event in Wijk, where he will compete the World Champion Magnus Carlsen and many of the World's best players.
In the Women's ACP Tour, Valentina Gunina was a clear winner, and in January 2015 she will compete against a very strong opposition in the Tata Challengers. We'd like to thank again the organizers of Tata Steel, and we are looking forward to strengthening this cooperation in the future.
ACP - with the chessplayers and for the chessplayers.
