Mogilianski - Buzinskij 0-2
Mogilianski - Buzinskij 0-2

Due to the corner piece on 26 the white attack looks very suspicious. And after Mogilianski's next move 19.40-35? 19x30 20.35x24 black can successfully attack the front piece on 24. 10-14? This is not very precise, since it gives white the opportunity to play 21.39-33! 14-19 22.34-30 25x34 23.42-38 19x30 24.28-23 18x29 25.33x35 and the damage for white is minimal. After   9-14! white does not have the defense 21.39-33? due to 14-20! B+   21.45-40? 14-19! 22.40-35 19x30 23.35x24 9-14 24.34-30 It is not possible for white to defend the piece on 24. 25x34 25.39x30 17-21 26.26x17 11x33 27.43-39 14-20 28.39x28 20x29 29.30-25 7-11 30.28-23 29-34 31.23-19 13x24 32.25-20 24-29 33.20-14 8-13! Buzinskij prepares a nice ending of the game: 34.14-9 13-19! 35.9-3 19-24 36.3x26 34-39 37.44x33 29x47

Schwarzman - Gantvarg 1-1
Schwarzman - Gantvarg 1-1

Schwarzman was close to a beautiful victory against Gantwarg, but right before the time control he spoiled it 48.44-39? The piece on 39 gives Gantwarg the opportunity to launch a counter attack. After   48.20-15 28-33 49.47-42! black would have had no chance to slip past the white defense.   17-22! 49.20-15 6-11 50.25-20 14x25 51.15-10 11-17! Now it is clear why the 48th white move was a very unfortunate one. Black threatens to make an exchange with   28-33 39x28 22x33, and thus white must open the gate with   52.39-34, after which the problems for black are over. 9-14 53.10x19 28-33 54.47-42 22-28 55.19-14 28-32 56.34-29 33x24 57.14-10 17-21 58.42-37 32x41 59.36x47 24-29

Silva - Seck 1-1
Silva - Seck 1-1

Seck has a difficult position. After 11-17(?) Silva could force the game using 28.27-21! 16x27 29.31x11 6x17 30.36-31! Then black has huge problems, for example 18-22? 31.33-29 24x44 32.43-39! W+ or   2-7? 31.28-22! 18x36 32.37-31 26x28 33.33x2 W+ or   17-22? 31.28x17 12x21 32.39-34!! or   3-9 31.31-27 2-7 32.27-21! etc. But unfortunately he played   28.39-34? 17-21 29.27-22 18x27 30.31x22 12-17 31.22x11 6x17 after which the game ended in a draw.

Dul - Baliakin 1-1

Baliakin made a mistake with 16-21? Now Dul could win using 45.29-23! and both 17-22? 46.28x8 19x37 47.8x10 as well as   13-18? 46.30-24 18x20 47.15x13 leave black no hope.   45.30-24? 19x30 46.28-22 17x37 47.26x10 37-42 48.10-5 42-48 49.43-38 30-35 50.5-28 35-40 51.29-23 40-45 52.28-50 48-31 53.23-19 31-27 54.38-33 27-9 55.33-29 9-18
