Harika settles for a draw in Rd 4 of TePe Sigeman & Co. Chess

Press Trust of India  |  Malmo (Sweden) 

Indian Grandmaster Harika Dronavalli overcame a strong challenge from the table topper of the tournament Baadur Jobava to play out a hard-fought draw in Round 4 of TePe Sigeman & Co. Chess tournament here.

World No. 10 Indian, playing with black pieces, had to be at her defensive best to avoid conceding the game.



"I started the game quite well but played a miscalculated move which gave away my opponent the edge," Harika said after her match last night.

"I got into a good position in the dying moments of the game but couldn't convert and settled for a draw," she added.

With one more round to go and three crucial draws and a loss, Harika still remains in contention for winning the tournament.

She will take on English Grandmaster Nigel Short in her last game of the competition.
