HÀ NỘI The World Chess Federation (FIDE) has released a comprehensive list of winners throughout the history of the World Blitz Chess Championship, and among them is Vietnamese chess player Lê Quang Liêm, who secured the title in 2013.

In 2013, Liêm claimed the World Blitz Championship with an impressive score of 20.5 out of 30 points, surpassing formidable opponents such as Russia’s Nepomniachtchi and Azerbaijan’s Shakhriyar Mamedyarov. He also emerged victorious in the blitz event at the Asian Continental Championship that same year.

This year, Liêm has made significant progress in the global chess rankings, reaching the 15th position in August. His championship title at the Biel Chess Festival contributed to his accumulation of more points, resulting in an Elo score of 2740.

However, Liêm faced challenges in two important tournaments, namely the FIDE World Cup and the 19th Asian Games (ASIAD 19), where he did not achieve favourable results.

The World Blitz Chess Championship is an annual chess tournament organised by FIDE to determine the world champion in chess played under blitz time controls. Since 2012, FIDE has combined the rapid and blitz chess tournaments into a joint event known as the World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships.

FIDE recently announced the historical championship titles on its official page in anticipation of the upcoming World Blitz Chess Championship, scheduled to be held in Samarkand, Uzbekistan from December 29 to December 30. The list includes renowned chess grandmasters such as Aleksandr Grischuk from Russia, who won the title in 2012, and Sven Magnus Qen Carlsen from Norway, the 2014 champion. VNS
