Baku lost in an approximately equal final    

The final match of the World Cities Team Championship between Hoogeveen and Baku has finished in Dutch players' favor. The fate of the match was decided in the longest encounter Tiviakov - Mamedov N..  

TIVIAKOV - MAMEDOV N.

The young Azerbaijani failed to stand pressure: 88...Kxb6?? and after 89.Bd4+ he was forced to resign considering unavoidable lost of the rook. After correct 88...Rb5 the opponents would most probably continue fight in the endgame "rook and bishop against rook" in which the weaker side can hold if defending correctly. 

Rauf Mamedov missed his chance a bit earlier:

MAMEDOV R. - SOKOLOV I.

23.f4? Black managed to draw easily after this move. Why didn't White play 23.Bxf7 Rxf7 24.Rd8+ Kh7 25.Rxc8 Rxc8 26.Nxc8 and just enjoy "an extra pawn" in the endgame? Maybe Rauf thought he would have problems with activating his knight after 26...b5...

Giri - Safarli and Durarbeyli - Smeets have aslo finished in draws. Thus, Hoogeveen became the first champion city in chess history.
