Dortmund Sparkassen Chess Meeting 2013 (6)

Adams and Kramnik continue their winning streaks in Dortmund Round 6

Michael Adams and Vladimir Kramnik moved to 5/6 two points clear of the rest of the field of the Dortmund Sparkassen Chess Meeting.

Adams seemed to encourage Arkadij Naiditsch to attack him and with 21.Bh7 he Naiditsch started to over-reach and although the computer suggests ideas that might help hold it was harder over the board and after 24.Rd1 white was busted and resigned on move 26 as he was losing a piece.

Kramnik seems to have come to this tournament with a kind of buccaneering spirit that characterised his early career rather than the extreme control he often favours. He sacrificed the exchange for a dangerous attack and 28...Qf8 by Daniel Fridman lost almost immediately after 29.Nd5.

Peter Leko got a very pleasant advantage against Wang Hao but as so often with him he missed the most incisive tactics and allowed his opponent to escape. 21.Nxd7 is obviously the last thing white wants to do and black didn't have any problems holding. 21.Qh4! Qb8 22.Qc4! is quite a different matter.

Dmitry Andreikin equalised as black almost straight from the opening against Georg Meier in a Queen's Indian and they drew by repetition on move 17.

Igor Khenkin drew with Fabiano Caruana but only after having the advantage for most of the game. 44.Qd4 and 53.f5!! seem to have been the major misses. 53.Ng4! led quickly to a draw.

Round 6 Standings: Kramnik, Adams 5/6, Meier, Wang 3pts, Leko, Khenkin, Naiditsch, Caruana 2.5pts, Fridman, Andreikin 2pts.

Round 7 Pairings: Fridman-Leko, Wang-Naiditsch, Adams-Khenkin, Caruana-Meier, Andreikin-Kramnik.
