Donostia Chess Festival – Round Three

Hikaru Nakamura still leading the main tournament

donostia

The third round of the Donostia Chess Festival was a quick recovery for Maxime Vachier-Lagrave after yesterday’s loss as he beat the former world champion Anatoly Karpov and moved to shared 2nd place in the main San Sebastián European Cultural City 2016 Tournament. Ruslan Ponomariov defeated Julio Granda Zuniga, while the remaining three games finished with uneventful draws. Hikaru Nakamura is leading with 2.5 points.

In the KUTXA Tournament, Loek Van Wely won a third consecutive game and is firmly holding the top position. GM Alejandro Hoffman from the Euskal Xake Eskola Tournament is apparently the only unrated player, but this happens only because Argentina has been removed from the FIDE rating list. With kind permission from the organizers, games can be followed live on Chessdom. All round three results are posted bellow, for more information visit the official website.
