Three way tie at Tata Steel Challengers 2023 – Round 4 recap

After four played rounds at the Tata Steel Challengers 2023, three players score 3 points to be on the top: Velimir Ivic, Mustafa Yilmaz and Alexander Donchenko. And while the Masters’ players tomorrow have the free day, Tata Steel Challengers will tomorrow see the 5th round starting at 14:00 CEST.

Mustafa Yilmaz was today victorious against Max Warmerdam. The game was around the equal bar until Warmerdam’s 33…Kf8? followed by 34…Ba8?? Yilmaz did not let the advantage go, and scored his second consecutive victory in the event.

Velimir Ivic defeated Vaishali R in a very nice rooks endgame with mating motives. Ivic had winning chances earlier, but Vaishali stroke back and fought for draw. However, 35…Kg6? was a crucial mistake and the Serbian grandmaster found the way to victory.

Alexander Donchenko scored against Jergus Pechac. Donchenko had a clear advantage from the middlegame which was improving all way after, and Pechac eventually resigned in the 36th move.
