Tradewise Gibraltar – Masters 2013 7th round

Vitiugov

Vitiugov won against Georgiev in the fight for the 1st place and is now the sole leader with 6.5 points as Le Quang Liem drew Ivanchuk. The two drew in only 14 moves and it is against the rules of the event to accept a draw until move 30 :). Nevertheless, after arbiters talked to the players the problem was settled 🙂 – Ivanchuk did a very interesting masterclass which you might want to view on http://www.gibraltarchesscongress.com/video_masterclasses.htm!

1 GM Vitiugov Nikita RUS 2694 6.5 2959
