Colombia: standings after 6 rounds
Half-way point reached!
Medellin! The 6th round of the 12th Continental Championship has just finished. Half way point of the 11 round tournament and Canadian grandmaster Anton Kovalyov is well positioned with 5 pts, just half point less than the two leaders Cori and Bachmann.
The Canadian delegation is doing fine: Raja, Shiyam and Elis all having 4 points. Even though they are all losing rating points, it is deceptive. Colombian players generally are under rated between 100 and 200 rating points. What matters now is the final sprint: with 5 rounds to go and 6 qualification spots to the World Cup in September, everything is still possible! Good luck, Gentlemen!
