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.
|1||GM Le, Quang Liem||6.0||VIE||2647 1-0||GM Nepomniachtchi, Ian||5.5||RUS||2658|
|2||GM Korobov, Anton||5.5||UKR||2648 1-0
||GM Nguyen, Ngoc Truong Son||6.0||VIE||2616|
|3||GM Grachev, Boris||5.5||RUS||2653 1/2
||GM Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime||5.0||FRA||2730|
Full pairings here.
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.
