A Dan Dzo with a new victory, the other match decided by phone ring
The traditional chess tournament “Femida – Cup of Governor of Kharkiv region – 2010″ is being played from November 23rd to November 26th at the Palace of Students of the National Law Academy of Ukraine named by Yaroslav the Wise.
The four best Ukrainian professional chess clubs are taking part in the event: “Law Academy” Kharkiv (Ukrainian champion 2000, 2004, 2005), “PVK – Kievchess” Kiev (bronze medalist of 2009 European Club Championship, the champion of Ukraine in 2007, 2008, 2009), “A Dan Dzo – PGMB”, Chernigov (bronze medalist of the European Club Championship in 2010, the champion of Ukraine 2010) and “Rovenskie lesnie zubry” Rovno (vice-champion of Ukraine 2010).
A Dan Dzo – PGMB continues the victorious row by defeating PVK – Kievchess in the second round of the tournament. Baadur Jobava cleverly earned the exchange from Ruslan Ponomariov and then brought the advantage home. On the second board Anton Korobov stormed over Areshchenko’s Gruenfeld Indian and converted into the second point for A Dan Dzo. Grandmasters Miroshnichenko and Volokitin hung the pieces all over the third board in an extremely interesting game which eventually ended in a draw. Yuriy Kuzubov could only narrow the loss down to minus one.
The clash between Rovenskie lesnie zubry and Law Academy was marked with Nazar Firman’s phone ring, which immediately forfeited him the game. It turned out that this was the decisive point in the match as the remaining three games ended in draws, thus handing the 2.5-1.5 victory to Rovenskie. Replay the selected games bellow.
