              Shiyam just drew GM Gareev (the blindfold king) in rd 4. He has a draw and a loss against GM's. He plays as white against his 3rd GM in rd 5. GO SHIYAM GO!!

                Shiyam is finally getting lots of GM opposition (4 so far in this tournament). Now he has to start winning against GMs (not easy). Good Luck and good chess in your remaining games Shiyam!
