Fourth defeat for Humpy

NEW DELHI: Unable to shake off her poor form, K. Humpy tumbled to her fourth defeat on the trot after the sixth-round encounter against top-seeded British Grandmaster Michael Adams in the Ruy Lopez Memorial chess tournament at Zafra, Spain, on Thursday.

Humpy’s 58-move loss with black in this Ruy Lopez Closed game ensured a last-place finish for her.

The victory helped Adams close in on Bulgarian leader Ivan Cheparinov. With just half-a-point separating the two contenders, their final-round clash will decide the title.

Correction

Cheparinov was on four points after five rounds and not as published in Friday’s edition.

The results: Sixth round: Michael Adams (Eng, 4) bt K. Humpy (1.5); Manuel Perez Candelario (Esp, 2.5) drew with Ivan Cheparinov (Bul, 4.5); David Larino Nieto (Esp, 3.5) bt Julio Granda Zuniga (Per, 2.5); Pia Cramling (Swe, 3) drew with Fabiano Caruana (Ita, 2.5).
