Only 5 players still have mathematical chances to win the 2010 Aeroflot, the strongest Open Swiss tournament in the world. Leading by 1/2 point are two Vietnamese youngsters, Le and Nguyen, followed by Nepomniachtchi, Korobov, and Grachev.

Update: Grachev just drew Vachier-Lagrave so only 4 still have chances to win. Le has a good position against Nepom while Korobov has an active position against Nguyen. This will be an exciting finish.
