The following article was published in the 41st year of my chess column in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday 17th June 2013.

Le Quang Liem of Vietnam scored the biggest success in his life so far by winning the world blitz (3 mins + 2 secs per move) championship in Khanty-Mansisyk, Russia scoring 20.5/30. A.Grischuk (RUS), R.Ponomariov (UKR) and I.Nepomniachtchi (RUS) were equal second on 20 points. The prize fund was $ 207,000.
