Jobava in sole lead at Abu Dhabi Masters

GM Jobava had a sky-rocketing start in the 26th Abu Dhabi Masters Chess tournament. After four rounds he is in the sole lead with 4 points out of 4! In round 3, he outplayed Chinese IM Xu Yi with the black pieces in the opening and in the last round (4) he beat Serbian GM Aleksandar Indjic who was in great time-trouble before move 40.

A very interesting interview with Jobava is available in the below Youtube video. Wind to 2.18:50 for the interview by Moldavian GM Viorel Iordachescu.

Today in round 5, Jobava will play UAE’s number one GM A.R. Saleh Salem with the black pieces.
