Harikrishna, Giri draw at Shenzen chess tourney

IANS logoIANS 31-03-2017

World No. 14 Harikrishna was determined to make something of this contest as the tournament entered its final stages. But Giri was equally resolute and held Hari at bay, to make it one of the longest games of the day.

At the end of it, both had to settle for half a point each. The draw left Harikrishna at the same position on the points table, fourth, with just two more rounds to go.

Harikrishna will take on the tournament's current leader Liren Ding of China in the next round. Giri, with 4.5 points, is at the second position, just half a point behind Ding.
