Pre-match review of the fifth round
miroshnichenko01That’s going to be the last round before free day, so everyone would like to celebrate the win instead of regretting the loss during their rest.

Russia versus China is no doubt a match of the day. Chinese are performing much more convincing so far, but of course it won’t be easy for them against Olympiad winners. An uncompromised battle expected!

After three consecutive loses Armenia plays Turkish team. “An easy game for Armenia” I would say before the tournament started, but each round makes me less and less convinced about that - Turkey plays quite a good tournament so far, and I bet they would like to continue to win!
China remains perfect after 4 rounds
round4 previewRound 4 did not bring many surprises. China won against Vietnam 3-1, scoring on the two lower boards (Zhao Xue - Nguyen Thi Thanh An 1-0 and Hoang Thi Nhu - Tan Zhongyi Y 1-0) and remain in the lead with 100 percent match points.

India scored 3,5 board points against Armenia. Only Lilit Mkrtchian was able to draw against Harika Dronavalli on the second board. India is on the second rank with 7 match points.

The close encounter between Georgia and Russia ended in a draw – players shared points in all the games. The fourth board fight between Valentina Gunina and Nino Khurtsidze was the last game of the round. Both players danced around the equal queen+1 knight ending trying to get an edge but finally the fair draw was agreed.

Pre-match review of the round 4
miroshnichenko01Good afternoon everyone, here is my humble opinion on what we’re going to see in round 4.

China looks unstoppable so far after yesterday’s crushing win, so I would say Vietnam is going to need a lot of luck to prove the opposite.

Georgia vs. Russia. Both teams are quite upset with yesterday’s performance, so mental strength and a team spirit will be as important as chess skills in this match.
