The situation grew doubly hot each moment

Photo review about the 7th day

The situation on Moscow Open 2007 grew doubly hot each moment – final is coming up and every point is worth gold. No wonder the real fight was in the 6th tour: it was only two draws at the first 15 tables. But the most interesting games took place at the first 2 tables…

Evgeniy Najer vs Yaroslav Ulko

Alexander Ryazantsev vs Pavel Smirnov
Najer and Ulko have a rapid game. Smirnov is not shaken! Pavel can hardly repress a smile after his victorious move. And Ryazantsev can’t resign.

It is done! One of the most impressive climax of tournament. Black pieces get a white pawn past them to their king. Chernyshov sacrificed quality on e4, and the queen on g5. Bravo, Smirnov!!

Public attention was attracted by the 1st table. There Najer was scarifying pieces, saving only minimum to mate.

Evgeniy is the best: white save only one queen and a rook. In this situation one can be sit everyone. Ulko resigned. His start was so impressive but he didn’t manage to win the game against Najer. But he still has a chance on this tournament?
The 7th day was full of smiles and expectations. The win of the first Moscow Open Farrukh Amonatov and grandmaster from Moldova Dmitriy Svetushkin
But Yuriy Yakovich and Vasiiy Emelin sitting at the 1st tables have no reason to smile

Konstantin Chernyshov worked as a journalist at the morning taking interview to Vasiliy Zhukov, the head of RSSU, and some hours later he has become one of the leader of the tournament in the game against Pavel Smirnov.

Chernyshov to Smirnov: “Hello, grandmaster”

Vladimir Malakhov is on the horizon

New comers: Valeriy Yandemirov and Alexey Korotylev have escaped the defeat. The Moscow Open strategy is to win!

The accuracy of Timur Gareev and Vadim Zvyagintsev is in their way to the top.

Will Alexey Dreev win in the game against grandmaster from Ukraine Mikhailo Alexeenko?
Smirnov and Najer have 11 victories in 12 games in two...

Smirnov: “Get and sign!”

Malakhov and Najer are starting the game!

При входе в игровой зал, судья каждому назидательно рекомендовал: «Не забудь сотовый телефон»... То же несколько раз повторил и припозднившемуся Наеру, на что Малахов под общий смех прибавил: «Включить!» Ну как его еще иначе одолеть?
