Baadur Jobava once again beat Daniil Dubov. Last time it happened at Bronstein Memorial, the win then brought Jobava overall victory in competition.  

Now the opponents met in Round 6 of EICC. As many of Jobava's games, this also can be marked as "unusal." In a sharp position Baadur sacrificed the queen for the rook and the knight, obtained enough compensation and managed to built a threatening construction for the White king. Both players did their best up tp 40th move. 


40.d7? Here Daniil miscalculated. He had to go with 40.Qb2! Next there might have taken place the following position 40...Kh7 41.d7 Nxd7 42.Nxd7 Rb3 43.Qxb3 c1Q 44.Qxf7+ with equality.
40...c1Q 41.d8Q Qg5! It turns out that one queen is stronger than two. 
42.Qa8 Qd2 43.Qc6 Kh7
