Asia Continental Chess Round 6 - Negi in Sole Lead

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

Hi everyone,

Here is some chess news update from the Asia Continental Chess event currently on in Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam). Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi went through the defences of Yu Yangyi of China to emerge as the sole leader after the sixth round. With his fourth straight victory, 19-year-old Negi is now looking at the gold medal. The win against Yangyi was a close affair as the Chinese had a draw in hand when he tried too hard with his clock ticking away. You can read a nice report here.
