If in the previous round, our young men showed good results, then this time ladies looked more fortunate. So, our compatriot Nilufar Yakubbaeva in the age group up to 16 years defeated the Russian chess player Anna Kochukova. Scoring 4 points out of 5 in her group, she is the fifth.
The play of Bahora Abusattorova (under 18) was also successful, and she scored 3 points. Two defeats in the previous rounds do not allow her come closer to the leading group.
Our female player Adel Rahman in this age group shows a stable game. In five rounds Adel won made two victories and three draws. He scored 3.5 points, and ranked ninth.
One of the leaders among young men under 14 was Nodirbek Yakubboev, who scored 3.5 points in four rounds. But the essence of the Swiss system is that the better you play, the stronger is your rival, and vice versa – when losing, you get weaker opponent in the next round. In the fifth round Nodirbek Yakubboev met with another leader, the Austrian chess player and lost. That defeat dropped him to tenth place. Uzbekistan’s another chess player Saidakbar Saidaliev (under 16) also lost the game. Currently, he has 3 points out of 5.
