Round 5 review
IMG 3505
by GM Evgenij Miroshnichenko
After the free day our players may look rather solid with four draws out of six games (for the first time in this tournament!). But if you check the games you'll find out the same exciting maner of play with lot of unexpected turnovers, narrow escapes, well, sometimes disappointing mistakes but as well quite a few nice touches which would be a pity to miss.
