29th Tepe Sigeman & Co 2024 R4: Arjun draws with Korobov, both maintain their lead

by Shahid Ahmed - 30/04/2024

Arjun Erigaisi had a well contested draw against Anton Korobov (UKR) in the fourth round of 29th TePe Sigeman & Co Tournament 2024. Both Arjun and Korobov are still in the lead 3/4. Vincent Keymer (GER) went wrong early in the middlegame against Wenjun Ju (CHN). He managed to recover, however, he needed to find a precise defense in the endgame which he couldn't and eventually lost his game. Nodirbek Abdusattorov (UZB) simply annihilated Nils Grandelius' (SWE) kingside, after the latter could not anticipate his opponent' attack correctly. Arjun will face Keymer in Round 5. It starts tomorrow Wednesday 1st May at 3 p.m. local time, 6:30 p.m. IST. Photo: Mikael Svensson/

Vincent Keymer (GER, 2726) went wrong early in the middlegame against Wenjun Ju (CHN, 2559).

Position after 27.Nc5??

27.Nc5?? was a blunder. The reigning Women's World Champion did not have any trouble to figure it out 27...Bxc5 28.dxc5 Nd5 29.Qe4 Ng5 now White cannot save the e5-bishop from getting captured. However, the conversion was not smooth, eventually Keymer found himself back in the game.

Position after 63...Nf7

White can still save the game, thanks to his f6-pawn and better placed king. It was not easy to find the precise defense. The game continued 64.Kc5 Nh6 and White went on to lose the game. Find out what White could have done instead.
