Russian grand master Ian Nepomniachtchi has shared 3rd place at the Russian National Championships which finished in Kazan

Before the last round Ian still had chances for 1st place and he also badly needed to win. He chose the most risky variant of his game against Vityugov. However luck was on the side of his opponent. As a result Nepomniachtchi shared 3rd place (4,5 points).
The next tournament for Ian is the World Mind Sport Games which will be held in China.
