<p>Gukesh and Praggnanandhaa are tied for fourth place, and both will need to win in the next round when Gukesh faces Polish tailender Mateusz Bartel and Pragg, as he is affectionately nicknamed, faces leader Nodirbek Abdusattarov.</p>
<p>Both of them winning would liven up the competition, and Gukesh has the advantage against Bartel, who is lingering in last place.</p>
<p>After five rounds of competition, Uzbek player Abdusattarov is savoring his newfound position as the fifth-ranked player in the world while also profiting from his talent and good fortune.</p>
<p>It is unclear whether the Uzbek will falter in the last four rounds since he leads by a single point on four of a possible five.</p>
<p>Arriving with a string of impressive performances, Parham Maghsoodloo proved his mettle by winning the first two rounds, including the match against Praggnanandhaa.</p>
<p>Since then, however, things have gone well, and Maghsoodloo has to perform better to establish his claim to the top spot.</p>
<p>With his remarkable style, Richard Rapport now stands third after three rounds. The Hungarian-turned-Romanian will bide his time until he generates his own opportunities.</p>
<p>Vidit Gujrathi, the other Indian competitor, began the match with four draws in a row before suffering a costly loss against Praggnanandhaa. The Nasik native has a lot of distance to make up, but he usually peaks at the conclusion of the competition.</p>
<p>Arjun Erigaise, meanwhile, surpassed Viswanathan Anand for the second time in three days to reclaim the top spot among Indians.</p>
<p>At the Chinese Shenzen Masters, the Indian is in the lead. Arjun also made his debut appearance in the global live ranking at position 10.</p>
<p>Pairings round 6 (Indians unless otherwise noted): Nguyen Thai Dai Van (Cze, 2) vs. Parham Maghsoodloo (Iri, 3.5); Vidit Gujrathi (2) vs. Vincent Keymer (Ger, 2); Nodirbek Abdusattarov (Uzb, 4) vs. R Praggnanandhaa (2.5). Richard Rapport (Rou, 3) vs. David Navara (Cze, 2.5); Mateusz Bartel (Pol, 1) over D. Gukesh (2.5).</p>
