There is plenty of chess to follow for the next days. Gibraltar Masters is being as entertaining as it can be, with Hikaru Nakamura, Wei Yi, Adhiban and Renier Vazquez in the lead with 4 points out of four. Among these four, Wei Yi and Nakamura have been not just winning their games but demonstrating a consistent strength.
The 5th round is set and it looks like there could be a lot of interesting games: Bologan – Svidler / Anton Guijarro – Topalov / Adhiban – Nakamura / Vazquez – Wei Yi are just a some of them.
On another note, the ”Moscow Open” beings today until february 8th. A nine round swiss tournament with the participation of 21 Grandmasters above 2600 including Ian Nepomniatchtchi, Evgeny Alekseev, Francisco Vallejo Pons, Anton Korobov and many others. We’ll keep an eye on this event as well.
