Polish Grandmaster Radoslaw Wojtaszek scored an important victory against Robin Van Kampen in the penultimate round of the Hilton Basel Chess Festival to emerge sole leader with 5,5/6 points.
In the final round Wojtaszek will play white against Maxim Rodstein, who surged to the shared second place after beating GM Felipe El Debs.
Last week Wojtaszek already won a very strong tournament in Switzerland – the Zurich Christmas Open.
In the Amateur tournament with 114 players the 10-year-old (!) Daniel Kopylov from Germany is leading with the perfect 6/6 score.
