R Praggnanandhaa and D Gukesh will take on each other in the sixth round of the Superbet Classic chess tournament after a day’s rest and will have to raise their level of play in the last four rounds to top the table.

Grandmasters R Praggnanandhaa and D Gukesh will have to raise their level of play in the last four rounds to reach the top of the table when they take on each other in the sixth round of the Superbet Classic chess tournament after a day’s rest. Both the Indians are tied for second place with three points each after five rounds of the nine-round tournament.

Fabiano Caruana of America is at the top of the table, half a point ahead of him. Alireza Firouzja and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave of France, Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia and Wesley So of America are in fourth place with 2.5 points. These four players are half a point ahead of Anish Giri of Netherlands and Nodirbek Abdusattorov of Uzbekistan. Local player Deak Bogdan-Daniel is at the bottom of the table with 1.5 points.

Praggnanandhaa has failed to perform his best in the tournament so far and despite being in a better position, he has drawn some matches. In the sixth round, he will face Romania’s Bogdan-Daniel. Praggnanandhaa is considered a contender for victory in this match because he will play with white pieces. World Championship challenger Gukesh will face Vachier-Lagrave in the sixth round. In this round, Gukesh will play with black pieces.
