At the end of the afternoon, the leaders Hans Niemann and Paco Vallejo, being in delicate situations in their games, managed to overcome the defeat and tie their games with great tenacity. The first one against Grandmaster Kirill Alekseenko, one of the strongest players of the tournament, and our dear Paco Vallejo against Grandmaster Tin Jingyao from Singapore, who is having an impressive tournament. Also noteworthy is the great triumph of the International Master Aditya Mittal from India, who at only 16 years old and being one of the promises of world chess, brilliantly defeated the Bulgarian Grandmaster Ivan Cheparinov, number 4 in the ranking list. With these results, and after passing the halfway point of the tournament, only three players share the lead: Paco Vallejo, Hans Moke Niemann and Aditya Mittal.
