The ACP Golden Classics third round did, again, not lead to a adjournment, although one game was realy close. Anna Muzychuk sealed her 41th move and Baadur Jobava had to start his homework, but in the evening Anna reported by mail they agreed a draw eventually.

Both players discussed their position with a computer immediately after the game, which concluded a drawish 0,00 in several lines. However, one of them is really attractive:


41.Rdf1 Be8 42.Rf7+ Kd8 43.Qf6+ Kc8 44.Rxc7+ Rxc7 45.Qf8 Kd8 46.Qd6+ Rd7 47.Qb8+ Ke7 48.Rf8 Kxf8 49.Qxe8+ Kxe8, stealmate.

It leaded to a though decision: eternal fame in a book on tactics, or a rest day. After their game, and before their desicion to draw the game, both players came up for an interview with our camera crew.
