Russia is in front in the match against China

After two fighting days of the match between Russian and Chinese teams in Saint Petersburg, the overall score is 11 - 9 in favour of the Russians. Russia is ahead 6-4 among men, while the women's match is in the balance. Just like on day one, the hosts took 5.5 points vs. the guests' 4.5 points on the second day.

The opposing sides are fighting just as hard (only three out of twenty games had fewer than 40 moves) as the venue is deserted by spectators: there wasn't a single spectator on 150 prepared chairs at the start of today's round.
See this and more in Nikolay Monin's photo report from the scene.

In today's second round there were five draws in the men's match. The Chinese have more grounds for being happy about it: Maxim Matlakov wasn't able to realise a huge advantage in his game against Wang Yue. The day belonged to the Russians in the match of the fairer sex: Baira Kovanova lost to Ju Wenjun, but Valentina Gunina won against Shen Yang and Alexandra Kosteniuk defeated Zhao Xue.

The World ex-Champion won a pawn in the middlegame and later she managed to increase an initially small advantage, rather then lose it. It ended with a rather nice pawn push.

ZHAO XUE - KOSTENIUK

44...d2! 0-1

Have a look at the games from day two.
