Abhijeet Gupta beats leader Korobov; Sasi outsmarts Negi: AICF-AAI Cup R 7

Grandmaster and former world junior champion Abhijeet Gupta spiced up the AICF-AAI Cup defeating tournament leader Anton Korobov of Ukraine in the seventh round that concluded here.

Gupta’s first victory threw the tournament wild open as Korobov remained on four points following his first defeat. The Indian can look forward to an improved finish after a rather sedate start and two back to back loses coming in round five and six.

Krishnan Sasikiran avenged his second round defeat against compatriot Parimarjan Negi in a one-sided affair while Evgeny Alekseev of Russia signed peace with top rated Radoslav Wojtaszek of Poland in the other game of the day.
