The Chess Candidates Tournament, whose winner obtains the right to challenge the world champion, the Norwegian Magnus Carlsen, in 2023, celebrates this Sunday at the Palacio de Santoña (Madrid) the thirteenth day of competition.

Russian Ian Niepómniashi remains the leader.

The two players who could still make their military tour of Madrid bitter, did just the opposite of what was expected on Friday, before the rest day.

The American Hikaru Nakamura, usually very combative, presented the Russian with a draw in 16 moves.

And the Chinese Liren Ding, who was launching with three wins in a row, gave a backfire: he was lost with white in only 20 casts.

The classification is as follows: 1st Niepómniashi 8.5 points;

2nd Nakamura 6.5;

3rd Ding 6.5;

4th Radyabov 6;

5th Caruana 6;

6th Report 5;

7th Doubt 5. All the games can be followed live in EL PAÍS.
