    Good luck to Temur. This is a very different kind of experience from playing a tournament where you are an ''underdog'' in every single round. To some extent it is easier but to another extent - even more challenging.

    Big OUCH to the all capitals on the link, very user unfriendly.

    Good luck to Temur, hopefully he can win the tournament

    Not as strong as the FIDE Swiss but still strong. A delightful historic city ideal for a chess holiday. GO Temur

    The top seed drew in the first round as did another GM the 6th seed.

    Arad Nazari is 16-17 years old so might be improving and dangerous but Temur will win.

    Temur won rounds 2 and 3 to be one of three players on 3/3. He plays FM Arash Daghli, rated 2431 next. Go Temur

    Temur wins again to go to 6/6 and a 1.5 point lead in the tournament. He is just dominating this tournament like a player stronger than his rating.

    Agree he needs to keep playing his best but he can afford a draw and still be well ahead.

    Iskandarov has not had a great tournament, played a very weak field and has given up a point and a half.
