2017 Canadian Open: Hambleton - Vovk

The 2017 Canadian Open runs from July 8 - 16 in Sault Ste. Marie.

After 6 of 9 rounds, GM Razvan Preotu (CAN) leads with 5/6. That's 5 straight wins for Razvan after his upset loss in round 1 to David Itkin (see: http://chess.ca/newsfeed/node/973). 1/2 point behind Razvan are GM Aryan Chopra (IND), IM Kaiqi Yang (CHN) and IM Aman Hambleton (CAN).

Today's position comes from the tactical slugfest between IM Aman Hambleton (CAN) and top seed GM Andriy Vovk (RUS) in round 6.
