Gashimov Memorial 2016 - GOTD Round 6

Opening: E12: Queen's Indian: Petrosian system

Player(s): Safarli, Caruana

The rest day didn't help the fight-mode of the 10 contenders in Shamkir. Today 5 draws. Most of the people out there were already talking about Caruana doing another "Sinquefield" but, despite Fabiano today got an edge and tried to win, Safarli played a good game in defense, nailing the super-strong American number two in the world to a draw. Giri seemed to be in trouble against Eljanov, but the alleged advantage of the Ukrainian was never converted into something real, and Anish drew the game without much worry, to stamp there a not-too-shabby rating performance so far: 2918. With three rounds to go Caruana, whose rating performance so far is a stunning 2979, leads solo, pursued only by Giri half a point behind. Far, far distant, the Candidate looks up at the two monsters with little hope to catch them. Caruana-Giri, the game that will most likely decide the tournament, takes place tomorrow. Round 7 at 7AM EDT - 13:00 CEST: Caruana-Giri, Mamedyarov-Safarli, Karjakin-Radjabov, Harikrishna-Mamedov, Eljanov-Hou Yifan.
