    25xx with 4.5/7! An even better day.
    Both the 25xx players in tiebreaks lost. Still, 3 25xx through to round 4 is quite incredible. They've got pretty good pairings in Rd4 too:

    GM Piorun, Kacper 2608 - GM Sindarov, Javokhir 2558
    GM Ivic, Velimir 2581 - GM Andreikin, Dmitry 2724
    GM Brkic, Ante 2592 - GM Martirosyan, Haik M. 2648
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    Martirosyan and Andreikin are favourites (particularly Andreikin who is quite consistent). Piorun -Sindarov promises to be very interesting.

    Tabatabaei beating Harikrishna the only significant upset in round 4.1 of the open. In the Women's Goryachkina lost to Stefanova and also Dzagnidze to Shuvalova though the latter is barely an upset in ratings terms. All these losses were with black.

    Esipenko - Dubov endgame fail as mentioned by Scott in the live top ratings thread. The RP vs NP ending is tricky, going from drawn to won to drawn, but with more patience he wouldn't have been there anyway.

    Dzagnidze won game 2 easily so playoff for that one.

    Bobby Cheng's conquerer Kovalev lost pretty badly with black against Fedoseev and is now getting horribly crushed with white as well so looks like he will be eliminated. [edit: and is]

    Sindarov & Brkic were each eliminated 1.5 - 0.5.
    Ivic through to tiebreaks after drawing both games.

    Ivic almost, and perhaps should have, won against Andreikin

    Carlsen - Wojtaszek in which white missed lines leading to forced mate.

    Thanks for posting variety of game openings
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Found this endgame interesting especially since I once failed to win something vaguely similar against Johansen in a simul. Of course perfect play is impossible in a rapid game but I also think the commentators' computer assisted analysis may not have been correct - seems Lagno was always winning albeit making hard work of it.

    And has eliminated him winning both rapids anyway. First was very interesting with Andreikin eventually blundering in a messy endgame, second was more convincing.

    In the Dzagnidze-Shuvalova match white has won 4/4. This should have also been true of Goryachkina-Stefanova but Stefanova blundered (more than once) and lost a won ending.
