Hi everyone,

The latest chess news after the fourth round from the 2012 FIDE World Amateur Chess Championship is that three players are leading in Porto Carras. The three players with a perfect score are Haralambos Tsakiris and Georgios Kafetzis from Greece and Alexander Liberman from Russia.

Meanwhile, at the Alexander the Great Chess Open, IM Malcom Pein defeated GM Athanasios Mastrovasilis, to lead with a perfect score. But, in the afternoon, he lost to the talented Greek junior Nikolaos Galopoulos handing him the lead along with GM Kivanc Haznedaroglu. Both events are part of the 8th Games Festival, which is taking part on 16-22nd April in “Porto Carras Grand Resort”. You can find more details in this Fide report.
