Loo. Russian Team Championships, round 3. Whitewash



All three matches involving the leaders saw whitewashes. No, not in the sense of a clean score to nil, but the losers failed to win a single game, which gives us grounds for referring to a whitewash. The Petersburg players scored three unanswered goals against Kazan. :

A Ilyin (Kazan) – Z Efimenko (SPbSF)

43.Nxe5? (43.Qc2) – Falling into a deadly pin 43…Re7 44.Ra5 Rxb2 45.Qd5 Rb1 (46.Ra1)  [0 - 1]

Saratov experienced problems. First "Shak" won confidently, against Evgeny Tomashenko, The encounter between the two Russian heavyweights was interesting :

A Morozevich (Economist) – A Grischuk (Malakhit)

28…Bxf5 29.Rd6 Bg6?! (29…Be6) 30.g4?! (30.Rd7) 30…Rc8 31.h4?! (31.Rd7) 31… h5 32.gxh5 Rxh5 33.Bh3 Re8 34.Qg3 Qe5 35.Qg4? (35.Qxe5) 35… Qh2?! (35…Kf8) 36.Qg2?? (36.Rd2)

36…Qxg2?? – Missing the chance to end the game nicely with 36…Rxe4!! 37.Bxg2 Rxh4 38.Kc1 Rc8+ 39.Kd1 Kg7 40.Rd2?? (40.Rd3 -1.04) 40…Rc3?? (40…Bh5+) 41.Rxb6?? (41.Ke1) 41… Bh5+ 42.Ke1 Rf4 43.Rd5 Re3+ 44.Kd2 Rg3 45.Rxh5 Rf2+ 46.Ke1 Rgxg2 47.Rd5 Rxa2 48.Kf1 Raf2+ 49.Ke1 Rb2 50.Kf1 a2 51.Ra6 Rh2 52.Kg1 Rhd2 (53.Rxd2)  [0 - 1] «Malakhit won convincingly 4:2 and meet St Petersburg in the next round.

In the match PGMB - SSM, two artists of an original type met:

Cheparinov (PGMB Rostov) – Nepomnyashy (SSM Nashe Nasledie)

Nh5 38.Rxd5?! (38.Qf2) 38…Ng3 39.Qf2? (39.Qd1) 39…Nxf1 40.Bxf1 Bxc3 41.Rc5 Qb7 42.Bxc4 e3 43.Qe2 Bf6 44.Bd5 Qe7 (45.Rc2)  [0 - 1] Lovers of head-spinning and orignal play and recommended to look at the whole game.SSM won 4,5:1,5

Serget Rublevsky scored the only win in his team's match, which allowed Ugra to occupy 3-4 places with Moscow.
