Donostia Chess Festival – Round Six

Leaders with quick draws, Karpov loses again

donostia

The leading players of the main tournament at Donostia Chess Festival settled for quick draws in round six, which leaves Hikaru Nakamura in lead with 5 points, still a full point ahead of Ruslan Ponomariov and Peter Svidler.

Maxime Vachier-Lagrave sacrificed a pawn for an early assault against Pablo San Segundo’s sicilian defence. Spanish Grandmaster decided to return the material in attempt to reduce the pressure, still white maintained his initiative and scored a win. Julio Granda Zuniga offered a speculative exchange sacrifice with black against Rustam Kasimdzhanov, but the former world champion stormed through the center and swiftly won the match. Anatoly Karpov could not recover his form and succumbed under the attack of Sergei Movsesian.
