MORE LATER Leinier Dominguez and Vassily Ivanchuk won their games in the fourth round of the Grand Prix in Élancourt (near Paris). Dominguez beat Anish Giri in a rook ending that started as a Bc5 Ruy Lopez. In a Queen’s Indian against Laurent Fressinet, Ivanchuk was lucky to survive what was probably a lost position around move 30, and even won in the end. This way the Ukrainian joined Boris Gelfand in the lead. The other games, including the big clash between Grischuk and Caruana, ended in draws.
