World Blitz Chess Champion 2012 is Alexander Grischuk of Russia

Вручение кубка

Russia continues to rule the chess world. Not only the World Rapid Chess Champion 2012 belongs to them, but now even the World Blitz Chess Champion 2012. Alexander Grischuk won the World Blitz Chess Champion 2012 title in Astana, Kazakhstan on Monday - half-a-point ahead of World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen. 

Grischuk played inspired chess despite being unwell to carry forward his lead of the first day of play. Carlsen notched up a winning streak of eight straight games, but could not catch up with the Russian Grandmaster. 

World Rapid Chess Champion Sergey Karjakin was right behind the duo at third place. Carlsen is runners-up in both the World Blitz and World Rapid now.
