The second round of the Tromso Olympiad tunrned out to be quite hard and unsuccessful for the previously twofold winners of the competition Ukrainian men's team.

Vassily Ivanchuk lost against a young opponent IM Urkedal from the second team of Norway, Anton Korobov drew Hansen, Moiseenko defeated Tari, thus the outcome of the match depended on Eljanov - Elsness encounter. Ukrainian had no advantage in the endgame as such.  

URKEDAL (2500, Norway 2) - IVANCHUK (2744, Ukraine)
Dutch defence
1.Nf3 f5 2.d3 Nc6

3.d4!? Not counting the lost tempo. Top GMs have played so and not once. 3...e6 4.g3 d5 5.Bg2 Rb8 6.0–0 Nf6 7.Bf4 b5 8.b3 Ba6 9.Qc1 Bd6 10.Nbd2 0–0 11.e3 Ne4 12.Re1 Qe7 13.a3 Na5 14.Bf1 Rb6 15.c3 g5 (this and 17th move of Black definitely need analyses) 16.Bxd6 cxd6 17.b4 Nb7 18.a4! Rc8 19.Nxe4 fxe4 20.Nd2 Nd8 21.axb5 Bxb5 22.Bxb5 Rxb5 23.Ra3

22...Rxb4? A wrong plan in an already worse position. 24.cxb4 Rxc1 25.Rxc1 Qb7 26.Rac3! Weaknesses and the passive knight leave Black no resources. 26...Nf7 27.Rc8+ Kg7 28.R1c7 Qxb4 29.Nf1 (and white rooks are ready to crush the opponent) 1–0

According to the statistics of Olimpbase, Ivanchuk's overall result in the previous 13 Olympiads (1998-2012) in which he twice represented the USSR team and then played for Ukraine - is 102,5 points in 153 games (+61 = 83 -9). He lost no game while being the second reserved player in the USSR team and then in six Olympiads in a row (1994-2004).

Interesting was a duel on the top board in Latvia and Lithuania battle. A romantic, considered disadvantageous for Black opening took place.   

SHIROV (2709, Latvia) - SULSKIS (2544, Lithuania)
Two Knights' defense 
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 d5 5. exd5 Nxd5?! (the main line - 5...Na5) 6. Nxf7 (a sacrifice from a textbook initiating the attack on the king that now moves to the center) 6...Kxf7 7. Qf3+ Ke6 8. Nc3 Ncb4 9. a3 Nxc2+ 10. Kd1 Nxa1 11. Nxd5 Kd6 12. d4 Be6 13. Re1 b5 14. Nb4! bxc4 15. Qc6+ Ke7 16. Bg5+ Kf7 17. Bxd8 Rxd8 18. Qxc7+ Rd7 19. Qxe5 Rd6 20. d5

White has a big advantage. All this has already been played on the correspondence in 2003. Seven moves after Shirov was registered a win. 

As Pavel Eljanov failed to defeat Elsness, the match Norway 2 - Ukraine finished 2:2. The first big sensation at the Olympiad has happened!
