Abdusattorov remains the sole leader of Tata Steel Masters 2023

18-year-old Uzbekistani grandmaster Nodirbek Abdusattorov remains the sole leader of the 2023 Tata Steel Masters after six played rounds. Abdusattorov today drew his game against Praggnanandhaa having White pieces.

The only two decisive games of today’s round were played between Wesley So and Vincent Keymer, and Fabiano Caruana and Gukesh D. Wesley So was victorious against the young German, prevailing in the interesting endgame where Keymer’s 34…b3 seemed to be a fatal mistake. Caruana defeated Gukesh with White pieces as he came better out of the opening and slowly but surely increased the advantage to score a full point. Replay all games here
