Today’s top of the ranking table was marked by draws. Leading chess players Bluebaum and Sargissian drew after only 12 moves and maintained the advantage over their closest pursuers. We could also witness a quick draw in the Moussard-Hussein game. The first player David Navara won a whole point and with a good finish, he still has a good chance for a high rank.
