Round 7 report
IMG 4094 The seventh round of the Grand Prix in Tashkent demonstrated that famous “all rook endgames are drawn” doesn’t always work even on such a high level. The leader of the tournament Alexander Morozevich unexpectedly lost in the equal rook ending against his compatriot Sergey Karjakin. Shakhriyar Mamedyarov was luckier as he managed to make a draw in a slightly worse rook endgame against Kamsky.  The game could have ended on favor of American player but he missed his winning chance in the critical moment. Fabiano Caruana defeated Lenier Dominguez to take the lead together with Sergey Karjakin.  Both leaders will face each other tomorrow in the eighth round.

Round 4 report
IMG 3091 (копия) In the fourth round of the FIDE Grand Prix in Tashkent, three games were decisive. In each round there has been great fighting chess and once again the elite of the chess world spared no prisoners !

The rating favorite of the tournament Fabiano Caruana managed to win his second game in a row whilst Wang Hao outplayed Gata Kamsky in the deep endgame and Peter Svidler won his first game in the tournament against former FIDE World Champion Ruslan Ponomariov.

The central game of the fourth round was clearly between the sole leader of the tournament Alexander Morozevich and the in-form Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, who was in second place, and ultimately finished in a draw.

As a result, Morozevich still keeps leading with half a point ahead of Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Sergey Karjakin, Wang Hao and Fabiano Caruana.
