Ramesh triumphs

Abu Dhabi: GM R. B. Ramesh defeated third seed GM Artyom Timofeev of
Russia in the fifth round of the 14th Abu Dhabi chess festival here.

GM P. Harikrishna missed out on a good opportunity to join the
leading pack as he could not put it across GM Artashes Minasian of
Armenia after being on top.

At the half-way stage, five players emerged leaders with four points.
They are GMs Ashot Anastasian, Ghaem Maghami Ehsan, Pavel Kotsur,
Mikhail Kobalia and Evgeny Gleizerov.

Harikrishna, Ramesh and GM Tejas Bakre (3.5 each), share the sixth
spot with top seed GM Evgeny Vladimirov, GM Marat Dzhumaev, GM
Minasian and IM Imad Hakki.

Among other Indians, IM S. Kidambi drew with compatriot Tania Sachdev
while IM Neelotpal Das and WGM Nisha Mohota also achieved the same
result. (PTI)
