The results of the 6th round of the World Draughts Championship are so unexpected that it is impossible to predict the end of the championship. Thus, in the B-final the number of candidates for the victory increased up to a dozen: there are five leaders with 8 points and seven players with 7 points catching them up. Surnames of the leaders have not changed; these are Ainur Shaibakov (Russia), Evgueni Watoetin (Belarus), Ndiaga Samb (Senegal) Thomy Lucien Mbongo (Cameroon) and Andrei Tolchykau (Belarus).
In the A-final, defeat of Alexander Schwarzman (Russia) by Marc Ndjofang (Cameroon) is the most unexpected in the round. And Roel Boomstra (Netherlands) won another victory, this time over outsider Dul Erdenebileg (Mangolia), for whom this is his fourth defeat in a row. Today’s victory made it possible for the Dutch grandmaster to catch up the Championship leader Alexander Georgiev (Russia) on points. Now they have 10 points each. Four participants have one point less; these are Jean-Marc Ndjofang (Cameroon), N’cho Joel Atse (Ivory Coast), Alexander Getmanski (Russia) and Yuriy Anikeev (Ukrain).
The next round will take place on June 17 at 10 a.m.
