Ivan Saric European Champion 2018
af Jacob Carstensen     4/4-2018

GM Ivan Šaric European Champion! At the European Championships recently settled in Batumi, Georgia, Šaric won ahead of 301 players. After a great start, he suffered a loss against one of the favourites, GM Wojtaszek. An excellent finish with 3 wins a row secured him the title, with the total of 8½ points in 11 rounds

Šaric is former U-18 European Champion in 2007, and in 2008 he even became U-18 World Champion. Worldwide he is best known for his win against Magnus Carlsen at... the 2014 Tromsø Olympiad. He has some other great tournament wins. Last year he made a nice and solid performance with a 7th place in Xtracon Chess Open.

The European Championship must be considered his career's greatest triumph! Even though the European Championships is missing the very best players, it is still one of the strongest Opens in the World. Ivan will be exciting to follow in the 2019 World Cup. We are looking forward to see him play in Elsinore this summer. He is now considered as one of the huge favourites.
