Deep Sengupta leads the Leiden Chess Tournament after five rounds

The Open Championship of the Leiden Chess Festival took place on Friday July 12th. The first move on the highest board was made by main sponsor Roel Piket of Adhoc & Solide Administratie.

After five rounds, the main event has a sole leader, Indian GM Deep Sangupta. He is the only player that got to 4.5 points in the strong event filled with first class masters.

Seven players are half a point behind Sangupta. Bosnian GM Predrag Nikolic is in this group and will have the chance to take down the leader in the sixth round.

Grandmaster David Howell opened the event with a simultaneous exhibition but is now a whole point behind the leader after losing surprisingly against German IM Ilja Zaragatski.

Evert Baak and Wessel Braggaar share first place in the B group.
