Jermuk Grand Prix – Round Five

9-23rd August in Jermuk, Armenia

Vassily Ivanchuk signed two beautiful wins in rounds 4 and 5 of the Jermuk FIDE Grand Prix to establish himself on the shared first place, together with Peter Leko. The tournament is taking place on 9-23rd August in Jermuk, Armenia. The event is hosted by the Armenian Chess Federation and dedicated to the memory of the 9th World Chess Champion Tigran Petrosian, who was born 80 years ago.

Peter Leko won against Sergey Karjakin in round four, but the Russian recovered on the next day and beat Etienne Bacrot. Gata Kamsky achieved similar feat and scored versus Ernesto Inarkiev. Thursday’s round produced lots of interesting games, but Armenians will be unhappy as both Levon Aronian and Vladimir Akopian were defeated.
