Looks like Mirko beat the second seed GM Tseshkovsky (2513) in the third round. :) Now on 3/3 he's paired against GM Uhlmann (2417) in the fourth.

Dekic is on 2/3 and is playing WGM Khmiadashvili.

Australia is also represented in the men's by super-senior Phil Viner who is on 2/3 and is drawn against GM Vlastimil Jansa in round 4. He lost to GM Wolfgang Uhlmann in round 2 so has is having an interesting time. There are 233 entrants. Phil is ranked 71.

At the same time, another Aus senior, David Lovejoy is playing in the Traunsee Open at the same venue. They have played 4 rounds and David is on 2/2.

Rujevic's game was interesting. Complicated tactical struggle. In the end - Tsesh (thats GM's nickname in Russia) lost on time on move 32 in an unclear position. In fact black was probably better there.

Well done, Mirko :clap:

That's interesting. Guy thinks Mirko (white) was completely winning after 31... Ng5?
He said the exchange sac on e6 in the final position would win easily as black's king is far too exposed.

I did not analyze the position at all but when i had a quick glance at it, i did not see anything forced. I guess I did not look long enough.:(

Without Rybka, I thought black could easily survive. :doh:

For a human finding variations like 1 Re6 fe 2 Qd2 (or 2 Qf4) is not that simple... After move 2 it is more or less obvious that white is much better.

Guy didn't see 34.Qd2 or 34.Qf4 either. He just thought 34.Be5 looked crushing- White's only the exchange down and black's king has no cover.

btw, the fourth round is being played at the moment (link below for people who haven't found them yet) :

Go boys! May 4th be with you! (I just felt like saying that last part - forgive me) :lol:

Seriously, Phil and David ... go hard lads - good luck.

An interesting tidbit: New Orleans chess legend Jude Acers is playing in this tournament. For some reason hes got a FIDE rating of zero which seems a bit odd... anyway, article about him below.

With Rf1 or Qf4 to follow, surely 34.Be5 *is* crushing?

Yes, he’d looked at a few variations following 34. Be5 and thought it looked and *is* crushing. ;)

btw, I just posted about the game because I knew Guy wasn’t likely to post … I was pleased that Mirko had a winning position when his opponent lost on time.
