altRound 6 of the  World Seniors Chess Championship was played in the 5 star Galini Hotel in Kamena Vourla, Greece. In both sections we have shared lead and after a dramatic day the race for the top positions is wide open for multiple participants.

Today’s results in the women section turned the course of the competition upside down in just one round.

The leader so far WIM Martina Beltz lost with black to WGM Elena Fatalibekova, while legendary GM Nona Gaprindashvili lost her game with white against WGM Galina Strutinskaya.

WFM Yelena Ankudinova was also convincing vs WIM Swietlana Miednikova, and now WGM Fatalibekova, WFM Ankudinova, and WGM Strutinskaya lead the race with 4,5/6, half a point ahead of the chasing pack.

Round 7 top pairings will see WFM Ankudinova – WGM Fatalibekova, and WGM Strutinskaya – WIM Titorenko.
