World Junior Chess Championship

The World Junior Championship could not have a more exciting finish. Five players have the chance to grab the title in the last moment and four of them will meet in direct matches! The current standings are GM Popov 9.0/12, GM Adly 9.0/12, GM Andreikin 8,5/12, GM Meier 8,5/12, and GM Wang Hao 8,5/12.

The final round tomorrow has a clear pattern. In the direct matches will meet the two leaders (GM Popov and GM Adly with 9,0) against the two who have not lost a single game, but are 1/2 point behind (GM Andreikin and GM Meier). GM Wang Hao will have the difficult task to be with black against GM Stellwagen. In case the top board produces a draw and decisive results are sen in the other two games we may see up to a four way tie. In that case the average rating of the opponents will be the tie break.
