Decisions today live from 13:30 on

The Sparkassen Open B is already underway, as is the final of the NC Sparkassen Online Open on lichess. The other 5 competitions go into the last round at 13:30.

In the NC World Masters Viswanathan Anand leads, but Michael Adams and Dmitrij Kollars are only half a point behind, so the tournament win is not yet decided.

In the German Grand Prix Pavel Eljanov and Bogdan-Daniel Deac will have a long-distance duel: Both have black games and last year's winner Eljanov goes into the last round with a half-point lead.

In the Sportland NRW Youth Cup Jonathan Carlstedt and Artem Lutsko are tied. For Lutsko a draw is enough for the IM norm, he will meet Timo Leonard. Carlstedt has the supposedly tougher last round opponent Tom O'Gorman with Black.

In the Sportland NRW Women´s Cup, there is a direct duel for the title: The two leaders Zoya Schleining and Lara Schulze play each other. Half a point behind, Evgeniya Doluhanova can still hope to win the tournament with a draw in the top duel. 

The Sparkassen Open A is led by the dominant Max Warmerdam with a one-point lead. So half a point is surely enough for the title. Behind him the field is close together.
