Subroto Chess Tourney heading for exciting finish

New Delhi, Apr 17 (UNI) The second Air Marshal Subroto Mukerjee Memorial All India Open International Rating Chess Tournament is heading for an exciting finish as a pack of seven players are leading the table with eight points after penultimate round matches.

Overnight leader, International Master (IM) Himanshu Sharma tried hard to find a winning combination on the top board against Sudhir Kumar Sinha, but after a marathon 125 moves, he had to be satisfied with half a point.

Playing safe, other leaders IM P Konguvel and Rahul Sangma signed the peace treaty after 29 moves.

These two top board results helped J Venkata Ramana, D P Singh and Akash Thakur to catch up with the leaders with outright wins against their rivals B S Shivananda, Anup Deshkukh and G B Joshi respectively.
