It's very interesting matchup between two teenage Grandmasters on the first board in the seventh round between GM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son (white) of Vietnam and GM Negi Parimarjan (black) of India after both won their respective opponents in the sixth round. Both are among the current leaders with 5 points beside Yu Yangyi from China. Whereas the defending champion, GM Li Chao will play againts Indonesian International Master, Tirto, on board 6 after a draw with Rostum Tolentino.

While Uzbek GM, Marat Dzhumaev, will play white againts Yu Yangi of China on the second board. On the third board, it will be a battle between Iran (GM Ehsan) and Germany (GM Schebler).

Let's see how the results going to be towards the final three rounds. Would it be the Vietnamese chess prodigy or the Indian chess wizard that will march forward to be the champion? Or they just draw and Yu Yangi takes over as the leader? How about GM Li Chao, the defending champion? Can he catch up?

Stay tuned!
