Sunday, 03 November 2019 19:56
DSC 3601After the break yesterday, World Youth Chess Olympiad has continued with rounds 6 and 7 today. While stepping into the penultimate round, young Azeri stars are leading the competition by a two match points margin.
Speaking about round 6, WFM Nazerke Nurgali(2194) who has been the consistent fourth board of Kazakshtan could not be stopped yet another round. Nevertheless, this did not prevent Azerbaijan from reaching the win by 2.5 – 1.5. Meanwhile, Uzbekistan overcame Belarus where all individual games ended in a draw except the one that GM Javokhir Sindarov(2513) did not let his opponent get away with the huge blunder on move 17 (depicted below):


The money move here is 17…Qxf3+!! Where 18.gxf3 Rxf3 19.Kg2 Bh3+ does not lead any cozy place for White.
Uzbek team, however, could not keep their pace at round 7. Biggest upset for them possibly was the loss of GM Nodirbek Abdusattorov(2608) leading a team loss against Kazakhstan which meant they are behind the leader by 2 points now.
