Disappointing end for Liem in UK chess fest
HA NOI (VNS)– Vietnamese chess grandmaster Le Quang Liem lost to Sandipan Chanda of India in the last and tenth match of the Festival Tradewise Gibraltar 2013 in the UK on Thursday.
The two-time Aeroflot Open champion, who started the tournament well, resigned on the 37th move to end up with seven points.
Liem (Elo 2705) failed to find a top-10 place in the tournament that was won by Russia's Nikita Vitiugov who defeated defending champion Nigel Short D of England in a dramatic tie break in the last round.
Vachier-Lagrave Maxime of France and India's Chanda finished in second and third place, respectively. — VNS
