This was pretty wacky from round 2. Everything before black's 22nd has been seen before!

Vitiugov - Robson

I was just about to post Ivanchuk's win against the exchange Slav. Another interesting game was Bu's grind in the English against Akopian. The technique required to win this QR vs QB is immense, especially with kings so open.

Awful blunder on board 3 as Turkey loses to Russia 3-1
Ivanchuck and Giri played out 40 moves with Opp. bishops for a draw, but Netherlands
beat (leaders) Ukraine 2.5-1.5
