January 17, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Top Armenian grandmaster Levon Aronian suffered his first defeat at a major international tournament being held in the Netherlands these days.

In Round 4 of Tata Steel in Wijk aan Zee on Tuesday, Aronian, the winner of last year’s edition of the tournament, lost to the reigning world champion Viswanathan Anand from India and fell to 10th place among 14 participants.
Earlier, the Armenian grandmaster shared points with Dutch Loek van Wely, Norwegian Magnus Carlsen and another Indian player, Pentala Harikrishna.

Sergei Movsesian, another Armenian taking part in Tata Steel’s Group B Tournament, is in sixth place with 2 points after four rounds. Krikor Mekhitarian, an ethnic Armenian player from Brazil, competing in Group C is currently fourth with 2 ½ points. Fourteen players are competing in each of these sections, too.
