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

Hi everyone,

The fifth round at the Chess Grand Prix in Tashkent witnessed Ruslan Ponomariov, Rustam Kasimdzhanov and Gata Kamsky winning their first games at the event. Ruslan Ponomariov beat sole leader Alexander Morozevich allowing Karjakin, Kasimdzhanov, Mamedyarov, Caruana to join Morozevich in the lead. Peter Svidler had good chances to join the group of leaders but didn't succeed to win the position with advantage against Leinier Dominguez. Two other games Karjakin – Leko and Mamedyarov-Caruana were drawn. You can replay the nice Ponomariov-Morozevich game in the extended post with Chess King. 

Here is the Ponomariov-Morozevich game in the super Chess King applet that you could use on your blog or website as well: Simply get your own copy of Chess King.
