England Keeps Her Lead
ENGLAND KEEPS HER LEAD Excellent win over Denmark From our Chess Correspondent Varna, Bulgaria, October 3 England had an excellent 3 to win against Denmark in round six of Final Group B of the World Chess Championships. They thus kept the tournament lead which they took by half a point when Penrose won his twice-adjourned rook ending with Raisa, of Finland, in the morning session. Penrose scored his second point of the day when he won a pawn against Petersen in a Sicilian defence and simplified to a winning ending. Clarke had a slight initiative with the black pieces against From but the Danish player succeeded in reaching a drawn knight ending. Golombek was in good form against Horning refuting a risky pawn sacrifice and emerging with an ending with a rook for a pawn. A blunder Littlewood played a Kings Indian Defence against Claussen and won in good style by a neat temporary queen sacrifice when the Dane blundered in the early middle game. The American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer had his first defeat of the tournament in the morning session when he lost to Ciocaltea of Rumania. Fischer was again in poor form against Donner of Holland and adjourned a piece down with a lost ending. Leaders in the championship finals are Soviet Union 16 and one adjourned.
