The top-board clash in the 7th round of the Bosna International Open 2015 saw GMs Hrvoje and Antipov split points. With this draw, the former maintains his sole-lead over his nearest rivals. Seven players, including 6 GMs and an IM, are joint-second.
The 8th and the penultimate round of the tournament will witness GM Nikolic taking on the leader GM Hrvoje on the first board. With the former being vastly experienced and the latter in a very good form, this encounter promises to be a cracking one.

The 3rd round of the Bosna International Open 2015 saw 3 GMs – Robert Markus, Predojevic and Antipov Mikhail – being held to draws by FM Gazik, GM Drazic and FM Burkovic respectively. However, the rest of the results on the top boards went in the favour of the higher-rated players.
Thus, at the end of the 3rd round, 7 Grandmasters lead the pack with a perfect score of 3/3. With GM vs GM encounters on all of the top 4 boards in the next round, the 4th round of this 9-round open promises to be quite an interesting one.
