Radoslaw Wojtaszek leading in Basel

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.
