Yerevan, Armenia
8-16 January

Summary of the 5th round


In the fifth round of the GM norm tournament, the sole leader Pour Agha Bala Amirreza had a draw with GM Sergei Lobanov with black pieces. FM Davit Shahinyan and FM Daneshvar Bardiya celebrated their victories and equaled the leader with 3.5 points each, sharing 1-3 places.

The fifth round of the IM norm tournament proved to be particularly challenging for the leaders: FM Piliposyan Robert drew with Pashikyan Rudolf, which was sufficient for him to take sole possession of the lead, and CM Benik Agasarov suffered a traumatic loss to FM Nikolay Averin.

FM Alex Sahakyan triumphed over FM Arsen Davtyan after four consecutive draws and now shares the second through fourth places with Agasarov and Averin.
