Tepe Sigeman & Co 2023 R6: A Close Race
All four games in the penultimate round of 28th TePe Sigeman & Co Chess Tournament 2023 ended in draws. D Gukesh tried his very best until the very end against the legendary, Boris Gelfand. However, the rook and opposite color bishop endgame did not offer much for the teenager to push further for a win. World's youngest GM Abhimanyu Mishra continues his dream run. He drew against Arjun Erigaisi quite comfortably by ensuring none of his attacks on his kingside bear any fruit. Who will win this event - Abhimanyu, Peter Svidler or someone else? If two or more players end up having the same score, tie-break games will be played. In that case, prizes will be shared irrespective of the outcome. Final Round 7 starts today at 12 p.m. local time, 3:30 p.m. IST. Photo: David Llada/TePe Sigeman & Co Tournament 2023
