Unive 05: Adams wins game, So wins event

10/26/2013 – The only decisive game in today's round was Adam's very clean victory over Van Wely. However this, combined with the draw between So and Van Kampen, clinches the tournament victory for the Filipino as neither Van Kampen or Adams, who are tied with second, can reach him and his 1.5 point advantage. The open section is lead by Rodshtein, but anything can happen there tomorrow. GM Analysis of today.

The small town of Hoogeveen is again a center of attention for the chess world. Both the Unive Crown Tournament and the Unive Open have started in Hoogeveen, sponsored by the Unive cooperative insurance company in the Netherlands. The main attraction is of course the super grandmaster double round robin tournament that will run from the 20th of October until the 27th.

Round 5

Van Wely was outplayed by Adams. The Dutch had a moment where he could have tried to equalize, but he did not seize the opportunity and it was all downill from there.

So's draw today was enough for him to clinch first place with one round to go
