In the 4th round of Grand Chess Tour in Paris, Levon Aronyan competed with Azerbaijani Shahriyar Mamedyarov.
Our player, who played with black figures, failed the start up and appeared in an unwanted state. However, he was not only competently defended, but also put forward his opponent a challenge. As a result, the opponent made a rough mistake on the 31st step, after which our compatriot took the initiative and won the game.
After this victory, Levon Aronyan scored 6 points and started to lead with Wesley So in the standings. Today he will meet with the American chess player in the 6th round.
