Mikhail Mozharov leading Parsvnath International with one round to go

Grandmaster Mikhail Mozharov of Russia stayed ahead with a hard fought draw with compatriot Ivan Popov in the ninth and penultimate round of 13th Parsvnath International Grandmasters chess tournament now drawing to a close here.

C R G Krishna, Aniruddha Deshpande, Abhishek Kelkar and Ravi Teja continued with their fine run in the tournament and secured their International Master norm with one round to spare. The other norm hopefuls will have to wait for the final round for now.

Mozharov played a nearly crazy game before he could force a draw with Popov. Although room-mates and friends, the two Russians came up with some exemplary chess that kept the audience on the web guessing for a long time.

Popov sacrificed as many as three pawns in the opening but eventually took the draw after Mozharov steered his king to safety.

It turned out to be a bad outing for GM norm seekers as both N Srinath and S Nitin ended on the losing side against Grandmaster opposition. It was heartbreak for Srinath after doing exceptionally well in the tournament as he was grinded by Alberto David of Italy in a long drawn game while Nitin never found the going easy against Duc Hoa Nguyen of Vietnam.
