Missed Chances in Kings Round 4
Vassily Ivanchuk still leads the Kings Tournament in Bucharest after both fourth round games ended in draws.
It was a round of missed opportunities, as local GM Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu let Vassily Ivanchuk escape with a repetition draw, while Fabiano Caruana let Veselin Topalov off the hook during time trouble in their epic game, which ended drawn after more than 7 hours.
