2 players with 7 out of 8 in the B-Open

Pola Seemann had been leading the B-Open of the Sparkassen Chess Trophy for several rounds. On Saturday she met Luuk de Man from the Netherlands. In a strong and almost flawless game of both players she gave perpetual check at the end.

Aquil Akhramsyah quickly punished the long castling with an open king position of his opponent Daniel Aziz and won in only 19 moves: 
Akhramsyah - Aziz

Since the match on the second board between Hendler and Behle also ended in a draw, Akhramsyah and Seemann are now two at the top of the table with 7 points from 8 games. In the last round, exceptionally starting at 9:00 a.m., they will meet on Sunday. Pola Seemann has the better Buchholz, but 4 players are in the chasing position with 6.5 points and still have a chance of winning the tournament with a draw on the top board.
