The leaders adopted a surprising match strategy, leaving their third board and most effective player Maxim Vavulin (five out of five until than moment) "on the bench". This paradoxical "move" proved inspired as Alexey Sarana who took his colleague's place on the third board won the only decisive game in the match, thus sealing Russia's win over Hungary by 2,5 - 1,5.

This result consolidated Russia's lead in the tournament, with 12 points out of six rounds and only two teams, Iran and India, trailing by two points.

Today the tournament received the visit of Olympic silver medallist (and youth Olympic gold medallist!) Csaba Balogh, who shared with us the feelings accompanying the high performance.


So many nations, uniforms, flags...
