    Now the opponents met in Round 6 of EICC. As many of Jobava's games, this also can be marked as "unusal." In a sharp position Baadur sacrificed the queen for the rook and the knight, obtained enough compensation and managed to built a threatening construction for the White king. Both players did their best up tp 40th move.

  • In Round 2 of the ACP Golden Classic taking place in Bergamo, Russian GM Nepomniachtchi was defeated by Wesley So of Philippines. 

    Baadur Jobava went on with a rare line in Sicilian against Emil Sutovsky. Earlier it was mostly played by IM Eduardo Limp. Sutovsky sacrificed the pawn after the well examined theory. Although the energetic attack brought White a point, it is probable that Jobava could escape several moves before he resigned.

Levon said he might have been too optimistic at the start fo the game: after 5...g5 and 6...Ne4 the position "looks interesting" for White.  

  • The sixth round of Tata Steel Chess has finished in Wijk aan Zee. It was a round of missed opportunities to some extent: Leinier Dominguez failed to convert a considerable advantage against Nakamura, van Wely let Rapport escape, Harikrishna didn't use Caruana's blunder on the 40th move...

  • Levon Aronian who assured the overall win in the competition already yesterday, lost in the last round due to a "blunder of the tournament."
