Shenzhen 4-5: Fire and ice

Anish Giri and Ding Liren lead the Shenzhen Masters at the halfway stage after all six games in Rounds 4 and 5 ended in draws, but the rounds couldn’t have been more different! In Round 4 accurate defence saw all games end by move 31, while in Round 5 Mickey Adams and especially Anish Giri were on the verge of victory only to see their hopes slip away. Harikrishna – Yu Yangyi lasted 102 moves, with Hari defending the tricky Rook vs. Rook + Bishop ending.
