GM Joel Benjamin recaps Round 9. Only a couple of weeks ago Andreikin was struggling in Baku, playing the first stage of the FIDE Grand Prix. Dmitry finshed second last, with 4.5 points out of 11 rounds. Then he moved to Tashkent, and magic happened. He's now in the sole lead after 9 rounds, with 6 points. Today he won the important game with Jobava, who he shared first with, along with Nakamura. Nakamura drew his game, so now Andreikin is in the sole lead. Another game of interest was Mamedyarov's win against Jakovenko. Jako, known for playing risky variations, this time got beaten right in the opening by the strong Azeri, who now shares second with Hikary Nakamura.
