FIDE Candidates 2022 - GM Illescas recaps rounds 4-6


The most-awaited tournament of the year is taking place in Madrid, Spain.
Check our ARTICLE to learn more about the participants and the background of the tournament.
During the rest days, ICC will have GM Illescas and GM Yermolinsky recap the rounds.

After six rounds, there is a sole leader at +3, an amazing feat in this first part of the tournament. Ian Nepomniachtchi, the latest challenger, is at it again, playing brilliant chess and leading the group of eight with half a point advantage over Fabiano Caruana. The American super-GM seems to be the only one able to almost keep the pace with the in-form Nepo. The duo Nakamura-Rapport follows Fabiano a whole point behind.

Standings after Round 6:

# NAME  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8 Sc.
1 Nepomniachtchi Ian    ½  ½    1  ½  1  1 4.5
2 Caruana Fabiano  ½    1  ½  ½    ½  1 4.0
3 Nakamura Hikaru  ½  0    ½  ½  1    ½ 3.0
4 Rapport Richard    ½  ½    ½  ½  ½  ½ 3.0
5 Ding Liren  0  ½  ½  ½    ½  ½   2.5
6 Radjabov Teimour  ½    0  ½  ½    ½  ½ 2.5
7 Duda Jan-Krzysztof  0  ½    ½  ½  ½    ½ 2.5
8 Firouzja Alireza  0  0  ½  ½    ½  ½   2.0


It's a long tournament, and a lot of things can still happen, but for sure Ian Nepomniachtchi is showing good chess and the right attitude to challenge Magnus Carlsen for the second time in a row.
Play resumes on Saturday, June 25, at 9 AM EST - 15:00 Madrid (CEST).
