Shirov leads in Linares
Shirov to renew Championship Title?
Grandmaster Alexi Shirov finds himself the sole leader after defeating GM Ivan Salgado in round 8 of the Spanish Championship.
However, Alexi’s lead is only a half point and 3 gm’s are just a short distance behind! Alexi will play Black against Jaime Santos, while Anton will play White against Candelario. Should be exciting!
Sabrina Vega is expected to win the Women’s title (again!). Sabrina has 5.5 points going into the round. She will play Black against GM Angel Del Rio. Good Luck!
