August 2. Main event of past round, anyway for us, Yakutsk citizens was victory of Gavril Kolesov above the three-multiple champion of Ukraine Igor Kirzner. In middle of game for Yakutiya's grandmaster it was possible to intercept the initiative and most precise courses to finish a consignment before victory. Viva, Gavril!
The ex-champion of Europe Alexander Georgiev has changed Andrey Kalmakov from Tver with hight technics only.
The loser of the last round Jean Mark Njofang, gained at a most experienced Rob Clerk was rehabilitated. The classical position was received, in which the advantage was at Cameroonen, furthermore the Dutch at the end of a consignment had sharp shortage of time. Njofang has conducted the original plan with a victim piece and, though the representative of country of tulips had time to make treasured 50 courses, soon after the control was compelled to recognize the defeat.
Erdenebileg Blew again has blown. This time to French Arno Cardier. This consignment was finished by latest: and if the French on his results was renumerated by victory, on Mongolian player after a defeat it was simply a pity to look. The consignment of the leader Sergey Nosevich with the compatriot Anatoly Gantwarg was finished in a draw, though advantage all the same had more experienced Gantwarg. And in one consignment players from same country, young Vladislav Bedinovs has resisted against titled Guntis Valneris a drawn game.
So, for three rounds before ending a preliminary stage the four players have till 11 points. It's Sergey Nosevich (Belorus), Jean-Mark Ndjofang (Cameroon), Alexander Georgiev (Russia) and Arno Cordier (France). Following by them come, lagging behind on one point, Guntis valneris (Latvia), Anatoly Gantwarg (Belorus) and Gavril Kolesov (Russia). If this stage was finished today, these seven courageous would get in a final part. Us, Yakutyan, such variation very much even would suit. Was close to victory in today's round and Ivan Tokusarov in a consignment with Мurod Amrilloev. But prize nevertheless was not found. And it is a pity.
Tomorrow all participants and judge get over in Namsky Ulus to conduct the next round. The capital automatically passes to one day in Нamtsy, where is held interplanetary draughts a congress. Hurrah!
