Mas win round 6 !

As expected, IM Mashafizul won his 6th round game of the 2008 Biel Chess festival by beating German - Volker Duschek (2273 FIDE) with a black piece. He will meet Swiss player - Damian Karrer ( 2033 FIDE) photo right in the 7th round today. I expect Mas will win this round but he must be careful and not underestimate his 20 years old opponent and 111th seed because Damian has performed well so far with 4 points from 6 round!

His best results so far is in the 5th round when he beat Switzerland FM Niklaus Giertz (2342 FIDE) .

Further more, rating is not the true evaluation of a young player strength because they are fast improving as what GM Magnus Carlsen has done.
