Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Filipino Grandmasters Oliver Barbosa and Gomez John Paul defeated Grandmaster Marat Dzhumaev of Uzbekistan and Indian International Master Lalith Babu M R respectively in the sixth round to emerge as the joint leaders in the 10th Parsvnath International Open Grandmasters Chess Tournament. 

Playing with black pieces in Caro-Kan defence game, Barbosa gained an exchange of rook for his minor piece in the thirty first move and facing the inevitable, Dzhumaev give up the match after six more moves.

While playing white side of Maroczy Bind variation of Sicilian defence, Lalith Babu failed to convert a favourable middle game position and lost the initiative towards the end to hand over full point to his Filipino rival. Here is a video from the event.
