Getmanski - Kolesov 2-0

After 18-23? Getmanski missed the relatively easy win using 47.31-26! 12-18 48.36-31 18-22 49.32-28 23x32 50.31-27 22x31 51.26x28 W+.   47.42-38 This is probably winning also, but it is much more complicated. 21-26 48.32-27 26x37 49.38-32 37x28 50.33x11 12-17 51.11x22 24-29 52.39-34 29x40 53.35x44 23-29 54.22-17 29-33 55.17-12 33-38 56.12-7? 38-42 57.7-1 42-47 58.44-39 47-42 59.1-45? 42-37 60.27-21 19-24 61.21-16 37-26 62.39-33 24-30 63.25x34 26-17 64.33-29 14-19 65.45-50 17-26 66.50-28 19-24 67.28-33 26-48 68.29-23 48x30 69.23-18 30-34 70.18-13 34-29? The decisive mistake. With   24-30 71.33x15 34-1!! (and not   30-35? 72.15-33! 34-1 73.33-6 35-40 74.13-8 W+) black could still make a draw.   71.33-50! and white won.

Tsjizjow - Sjaibakov 2-0
Tsjizjow - Sjaibakov 2-0

Tsjizjow locked up the black center using 36.32-27! 22x31 37.36x27 17-22 38.44-40! 22x31 39.26x37 It is clear that black is in big trouble, since black has only 2 movable pieces on the left side of the board against 3 pieces of white. 8-12 40.37-31 12-17 41.42-37 7-11 42.37-32 10-14 43.31-26 11-16 44.48-42 4-9? Now it is lost for black. With   17-22 45.32-27 22x31 46.26x37 16-21 47.37-32 21-26 48.42-37 14-20! 49.15x24 4-10! a draw was still possible.   45.42-38 17-22 46.32-27 22x31 47.26x37 16-21 48.38-32 21-26 49.30-25 19-24 50.29x20 18-22 51.34-30 22-27 52.32x21 26x17 53.30-24 23-28 54.24-19 13x24 55.20x29 17-22 56.40-35 22-27 57.29-23 28x19 58.25-20 14x25 59.15-10 W+

Gulyaev - Ldokow 2-0
Gulyaev - Ldokow 2-0

With 49.43-38? Gulyaev gave his opponent a chance to relieve the pressure with 18-23! 50.38-32 30-35 51.22-17 35x44 52.39x50 20-24. Instead   49.33-28! was winning, since 30-35? fails due to 50.28-23 35x33 51.23-19 13x24 52.22x2 W+.   30-35? 50.38-32! 35x44 51.39x50 20-24 52.45-40 18-23 53.40-35 13-19 54.33-29(?) Here   54.35-30 24x35 55.33-29 was easier.   24x33 55.22-18 23-28 56.32x14 12x23 57.14-9 33-38 58.9-3 8-12? 59.3x17 38-42 60.17-28 23x32 61.27x47 16x27 62.50-44 W+

Tolchikov - Amrilloew 0-2
Tolchikov - Amrilloew 0-2

After 38.37-32 26x37 39.42x31 8-13! Amrilloew had a substantial advantage due to the inflexible white center. 40.48-42(?) It was probably better to play   40.31-26 here.   14-19! 41.31-27 18-23 42.27-22 15-20? With   9-14! 43.22x11 16x7 44.36-31 7-11 black could force his opponent into a lost classical position.   43.22x11 16x7 44.25x14 9x20 45.36-31? Here Tolchikov should have played   45.28-22! The main difference with the game is that after 20-25 46.42-37! black can not play 7-11? Because of that it is not possible for black to keep the white left wing locked up.   20-25 46.31-27 21-26 47.42-37 3-8 48.28-22 7-11 49.33-28 25-30 50.38-33 23-29 51.37-31 29x38 52.32x43 26x37 53.27-21 37-41 54.43-39 41-47 B+
