Russians Share Lead




WIJK AAN ZEE, Netherlands -- Russian Garry Kasparov still shares the lead at the Corus Chess Tournament with compatriot Vladimir Kramnik and Dutchman Jeroen Piket with three points from four rounds.


Kasparov, playing black Wednesday against Englishman Michael Adams, held a draw while a pawn behind in a bishop-against-knight endgame in which both players made 60 moves in their respective three-hour time limits.


Indian world No. 2 Viswanathan Anand had to be content to split the point with Kramnik with a draw agreed after 40 moves in a rook-and-pawn endgame.
