    L'Ami grinds Donchenko in the endgame to win and Yilmaz, who won his game, takes over the lead in the challengers

      Big upsets. L'Ami who was having a bad tournament had a key upset win over the leader Donchenko. In the masters Vincent Keymer who was in last place looks like he will upset Abdusattarov.

      Very resourceful play and a bit lucky by Abdusattorov. It means he will keep his half point lead over Giri after 9 rounds.

        Abdusattarov is very impressive. He held the draw against Keymer while having an horrible position to defend for 4 hours. Great tenacity. The kid is good in defense and offense. Maybe a future world champion. Too early to say but he surely is one of the top contenders right now. What a talent. Does anybody knows what's happening to Firouza ? Alireza is showing some Fischer's resemblance, good for chess, very bad in character.

          I think its way to early to say that Alireza Firouzja is showing Fischer's character. Alireza is absolutely charming, a delightful young man.

            He has not played in an important tournament in 6 months since the Sinquefeld Cup which he won handily. We don't see him playing chess anywhere. Don't know what he is doing.

              Rd 10 challengers Big win for Donchenko. Actually his opponent just fell apart in a good middlegame position. Back to tie for first with Donchenko and Yilmaz.

                After round 10 Carlsen inches closer with a win. Its still Abdusattorov in the lead a half point ahead of Giri and a point ahead of Carlsen and So. Still a very tight field with 3 rounds to go.
