Kamsky defeats Adams to join leaders

In the sixth round Gata Kamsky of the USA beat Britain's Mickey Adams to join Alexander Grischuk and Wang Yue in the lead with a score of 4/6.  His tie-break score (using the Neustadtl method - the same as used in tournaments at Chess.com) is better, so he is in the overall lead.

Two other games ended decisively:  Peter Svidler of Russia beat the Urkranian Sergey Karjakin to chalk up his first win of the tournament and hand Karjakin his second loss in a row, and Ivan Cheparinov put his nightmare start behind him to finally win a game by beating Ernesto Inarkiev.

The full results in round 6:

Kamsky, Gata - Adams, Michael 1-0 60 C92 Ruy Lopez Chigorin
Wang Yue - Navara, David ½-½ 42 D80 Gruenfeld 4.Bg5
Mamedyarov, Shakhriyar - Radjabov, Teimour ½-½ 30 C63 Ruy Lopez Schliemann
