The leadership of the Tashkent Grand Prix changed yet again in the penultimate round when Sergey Karjakin lost his game to Shakhriyar Mamedyarov.

Joining Mamedyarov to share the lead is none other than early tournament leader Alexander Morozevich, who defeated Peter Leko.

A third decisive result saw Ruslan Ponomariov beat Leinier Dominguez, who has struggled throughout the tournament.

    FANTASTIC game by Moro!!!!!! Very nice game by the most creative player of our time, crushing one of the most solid players these days, Peter Leko (or Drawko)!

    Shak also played a very nice game to defeat Karjakin!

    Tomorrow will be a fighting day in Tashkent. Moro and Shak will play black against Svidler and Wang Hao!
