Two are through to Semi-Finals, Four still contesting World Cup 2013

25th August 2013, Kuala Lumpur – Last night two candidates have checked-in for the round 6 of the Tromso World Cup 2013 while four are still slugging it out to decide the final two slots of the semi-finals.

As predicted Kramnik got his draw in the second game last night and his 1.5-0.5 was enough to see him through to the next round while Tomashevsky played decisively in a Marshall type of the Ruy Lopez opening. He was two pawns down but had a good position for black and won in quick fashion for a major black win.
