Isle of Man: Naiditsch and Wang Hao surge ahead

Isle of Man: Naiditsch and Wang Hao surge ahead

They both won with the white pieces and are now the co-leaders of the Isle of Man International Tournament — Arkadij Naiditsch took down Pavel Tregubov's French Defence, while Wang Hao converted a superior endgame into a win against Erwin l'Ami. On top board, Jeffery Xiong held Maxime Vachier-Lagrave to a draw, and now both of them are part of the six-player chasing pack. Meanwhile, Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik won their games and took a bye for next round. | Photos: John Saunders / Official site
