The best defense was   12-18 37.27-21! 16x27 38.28-22 17x28 39.33x31 26x37 40.42x31 3-8 41.31-26 8-12 42.26-21, and white has good perspectives against the weakened black right wing.   37.27-22! Now 17-21 38.36x27 21x23 was not possible due to 39.33-29 24x44 40.43-39 44x33 41.38x7, and therefore black sacrificed a piece with   3-8.

Round 6

Tansykkuzhina - Sadowska 2-0
Tansykkuzhina - Sadowska 2-0

In this interesting 5x5 position Tansykkuzhina played the logical 54.28-23? It turns out that white could win using   54.28-22! 17x28 55.32x23 8-13 56.37-31! 13-18 57.23-19 12-17 58.19-14 18-23 (or   17-21 59.14-9 21x32 60.9-4 18-23 61.4-10 23-29 62.10x37 29-33 63.37-48 etc. W+)   59.14-10 23-29 60.10-5 29-33 61.27-22 17x28 62.5x32 33-39 63.31-26 39-44 64.32-28! W+   8-13 55.37-31 17-21 56.32-28 21x32 57.28x37 12-17? This is losing. A draw was possible after   16-21 58.37-32 13-18! (not   21-26? due to 59.23-18 26x28 60.18x9 etc. W+)   59.23-19 18-22 etc.   58.31-27 17-21 59.27-22 21-26 60.23-18 13-19 61.18-12 19-24 62.12-7 24-29 63.7-2 29-33 64.22-17 16-21 65.2-11 21x12 66.11x50

Round 8

Fedorovich - Zhao 2-0
Fedorovich - Zhao 2-0

21-27? Zhao was in serious trouble against Darja Fedorovich. For example after   19-24? white plays 43.37-31! 21-26 44.31-27 with a winning advantage. But with the 'impossible move'   12-18!! she could have saved her position. None of the combinations is good for white (take for example 43.28-23 19x28 44.33x13 2-8! 45.13x2 21-27! 46.32x12 20-24 47.2x30 25x41 =), and after   43.29-24 19x30 44.35x24 20x29 45.33x24 2-8 black has enough counter play to escape with a draw. In the game the white advantage after   43.32x21 17x26 44.29-24 19x30 45.35x24 20x29 46.33x24 was decisive.

Round 9

Golubeva - Tkachenko 1-1
Golubeva - Tkachenko 1-1

38.31-26? Golubeva missed the strong move   38.30-25! The main idea behind this move is that 23-29 ? fails because of 39.28-23 19x26 40.27-22 17x39 41.43x14 W+ The best defense for black is probably   17-22 39.28x17 11x22 40.48-42 23-29 41.32-28 29-34 42.28x17 18-22 43.17x28 24-30 44.35x24 19x30, but according to the computer white has a significant advantage.
