Aeroflot Open Round 4 Updates! IMs Sadorra and Gomez wins!!!
by Pinoychess

Grandmaster-candidates Julio Catalino Sadorra and John Paul Gomez disposed their respective round 4 opponents in the Russia’s Aeroflot Open.

IM Sadorra trashed GM Al-Rakib Abdulla of Bangladesh using the black pieces while IM Gomez walloped FMArkadiusz Leniart of Poland. IMs Sadorra and Gomez will next face GM Evgeny Shaposhnikov of Russia and IM Oliver Kurmann of Switzerland, respectively.

Chances of getting a GM norm became clearer for IM Sadorra who now posted 2.5 points after 4 rounds. Beating another Grandmaster will surely catapult the likelihood of another GM norm for Sadorra. Sadorra is currently in the 17th-37th spot of the tournament.

Gomez, on the other hand is not far behind, has 2 points for 38th-59th place.
