Mogilianski - Chizhov 1-1

After 22-27! 41.32-28 24-29! 42.33x24 18-23 it looked like Chizhov was going to win the game. 43.28-22? White needed to defend with   43.40-34! 23x32 44.34-29! 32-37 45.38-33! etc. But one can imagine that Mogilianski missed this opportunity.   27x18 44.38-32 18-22 45.30-25 19x30 46.35x24 3-9 47.24-20 22-28 48.20-15 28x37 49.25-20 14x25 50.15-10 37-41 51.10-4 41-46 52.4-10 13-19? Here black should play   23-29 53.10-15 29-34! 54.40x29 21-27 with a winning endgame.   53.10-4 9-14 54.40-35 46-32? According to Kingsrow it is a draw after this move. 55.4-15 32x49 56.15-33 21-27 57.33x11 27-32 58.11-7 32-37 59.7x29 37-41 60.29-20 41-47 61.20x3 47-29 62.3-17 49-16 63.26-21

Dul - Georgiev 1-1

Dul was the victim of a simple combination after 44.33-28? 22x33 45.38x29 19-24! 46.29x20 23-29 47.34x21 16x47 48.20-15 10-14 49.35-30? Now it is definitely losing for white. With   49.31-27 there were better opportunities for a draw.   13-19! 50.31-27 47-33 51.37-32 33-6 52.30-24 19x30 53.25x34 6-1? After this move everything is OK again for white. Black could win using   6-11 and now either 54.34-30 11-2 55.30-25 2-19 B+ or   54.34-29 3-9 55.29-24 11-2 B+   54.34-30 3-8 55.32-28 26-31 56.15-10 31x33
