(1) World Junior Championships. There's one round left, and two are tied for first. One is Dmitry Andreikin, who has led from start to finish and must be in good shape if it comes down to tiebreaks. The other is Elistan Sanan Sjugirov; both have 9.5/12. Three players are a point behind going into the last round: Maxim Matlakov, A.R. Saleh Salem and Jon Ludvig Hammer.
In the last round Andreikin has White against Hammer, Sjugirov has Black against Salem, and Matlakov (the favorite of senior citizens everywhere*) has White against Parimarjan Negi.
The girls' championship was less interesting for a variety of reasons, notably that Anna Muzychuk (2527) outrated her nearest competitor by more than 120 points and almost everyone else by 200 or (far) more points. And until this last round, the general impression was right. She lost today to the only other player over 2400, one D.E.T. Cori (2403) (a strange pairing, as Muzychuk went into the round 3 points ahead of her opponent), and now there's an actual competition. Muzychuk and Olga Girya both have 10 points, and Rout Padmini has 9.5.
In the last round Muzychuk has White against Ekaterini Pavlidou (2182), Girya has White against Irina Andrenko (2133), and in case they both fail to win, Padmini can tie for first (or better), but only by defeating Cori with Black.
(2) Gyorgy Marx Memorial. Viktor Laznicka continues like a house on fire, drawing in round 8 and winning in round 9. His score of 7/9 clinches clear first with a round to go, as Zoltan Almasi's second-place total is but 5.5. In the cellar, both Jan Timman and Ray Robson lost in round 8, but in round 9 the latter beat the former to leapfrog him.
(3) China vs. Russia. I don't know if this event has finished or if there are blitz games yet to come, but according to TWIC China leads (or perhaps has won) 128-122.
(4) Efimenko-Naiditsch. Game 3 of this six-game match was drawn on Saturday, and today's a rest day. Total score: Naiditsch 2, Efimenko 1.
