Seven leaders after four rounds at the Universiade event

The 27th Summer Universiade event is taking place on July 6-17 2013 in Kazan, Russia. Once again, chess has been included among the 27 sports that will be featured.

The strong tournament features players from 37 different countries. Among them, we can find 24 GMs and 19 IMs. Three members of the 2700-club are in the lineup: Dmitry Andreikin, Evgeny Alekseev and Wesley So.

After four rounds, seven players share first place with 3.5/4 points. The Chinese representatives are doing a good job as three out of the seven are from the Oriental country – Zhou Jianchao, Li Chao and Ma Qun. Interestingly, they have not been paired against each other in the fifth round.

The biggest surprise in the leading pack is Georgian IM Gaioz Nigalidze, who arrived only as the 26th seeded player with an Elo rating of 2498. He has already defeated two GMs with an Elo over 2600.

Favorites Andreikin and Alekseev are lagging behind with only 2.5 points.
