He is not only the man of the hour: Levon Aronian has been hurrying from one success to the next for months now. At the FIDE Grand Prix in Jermuk he only attained the second place, but for the Armenian this was tantamount to the overall victory in the Grand Prix series. And at the recently finished Grand Slam Final in Bilbao, Aronian demonstrated impressive dominance, deciding the tournament in his favour with a round to spare. In the meantime, Aronian has advanced to number three of the world ranking list. By contrast, the third top event of this issue was open to the very end: at the Chess Festival in Biel, the young French player Maxime Vachier-Lagrave achieved his first very great tournament success.
