Shirov at the Spanish Championship
Tied for the lead with 6 points
After 7 rounds Alexi Shirov shares the lead with Grandmaster Jose Cuenca with 6 points each. Right behind them is a large group of 8 players with 5.5 points each. Remember that this tournament is organized as a 9-round swiss, so anything is still possible and the finish promises to be very exciting.
Shirov’s 7th round game proved to be relatively easy when his grandmaster opponent first misjudged a complex middlegame and then blundered his Queen. The game was just 22 moves long!
