Marat retains top slot in chess meet

Super Grandmaster Korobov, considered a title contender, could not follow up on his surplus pawn and bishop and ultimately lost.

IM Vidit Santosh Gujrathi (2527) and GM Mikhailo Oleksienko (2573) of Ukraine were jointly in the second position with 3.5 points each.

Vidit outwitted compatriot IM Narayanan Srinath (2439) while Oleksienko got a hard fought win over Indian GM Deepan Chakkravarthy (2487) at the Alekhine Chess club.

Top seed GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek (2734) again lost a valuable half point by drawing his game against Indian GM M.R. Venkatesh (2520).
