15th HZ Open 2011 (6)

Jan Smeets joins leaders in HZ Open after 6

There is a three way tie after 6 rounds of the 15th HZ Open in Vlissingen. The leaders Konstantin Landa and Evgeny Postny drew with each other. Jan Smeets beat Evgeny Sveshnikov. Rd 7 pairs: Landa-Smeets and Seirawan-Postny. Below is an extremely rough translation of the Dutch press release.

The two players still with a 100% score - GM Konstantin Landa and Evgeny Postny met - and they both couldn't keep their record. In a sluggish game, pieces were exchanged, and a draw was agreed. The chasing group didn't as a whole take advantage with only Jan Smeets winning in a game where Evgeny Sveshnikov emerged from the opening with a weak c-pawn and never recovered.

The other pursuers had to be satisfied with draws. GM Erwin L'Ami and GM Arkadij Naiditsch drew a fluctuating struggle, L'Ami better from the opening, then Naiditsch had the advantage (27...Bxb2 instead of 27...Bb7 28.Ra7 Qf8 29.Rxb7!) before L'Ami eventually got an ending a pawn up that unfortunately wasn't winning for him.

IM Edwin van Haastert held GM Yasser Seirawan to a draw. Seirawan had the advantage but couldn't break through.

And GM Michael Hoffmann was not opposed to a short draw against close friend and housemate IM Thomas Henrichs.
