Two clubs are perfect after Round 3 of the Russian Team Chess Championship. If success of the rating favourite Malakhit is not surprising (mebers of the team are Karjakin, Grischuk, Leko, Malakhov, Motylev, Lysyj, Bologan), the achievement of Belorechensk which is sixth in the rating list is quite unexpected.

The leader of Belorechensk Baadur Jobava is successful on the first board: yesterday he beat Dmitry Jakovenko of Ugra, today he defeated Gata Kamsky of Ladya. Noteworthy is that Baadur follows his favourite for now scheme - tries to avoid theoretical battles going out of the book.

  • In Sochi, the Russian club championship is drawing to a close. Five rounds have gone, and two remain. Yesterday, we had two leaders, Sibir and Belorechensk, and almost everything depended on the outcome of their match, because top-rated Sibir have outsiders to play in the two final rounds, and it is hard to imagine Kramnik, Aronian and Co. having much trouble with Ladya and Yamal, who only have a single match point at the moment. 

  • In Zeeland, the Hogeschool Zeeland tournament has ended. Three rounds before the end, the rating favourite Baadur Jobava was half a point behind the leading group, but at the decisive stage of the tournament, the Georgian GM did not drop even half a point. Indeed, he dropped only one point throughout the event and finished in clear first place.

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.
