Two more games were adjourned in the Amsterdam tournament ACP Golden Classic. There is no doubt about the future outcome of one of them: Gata Kamsky will win against Krishnan Sasikiran. Le Quang Liem has an extra piece with black against Baadur Jobava, but it's possible that the Georgian, who wrote down the secret move, won't decline the options of exploiting the opponent's open king and delivering a perpetual check.

There are currently four adjourned games in total in the tournament. The adjournments are to be played the day after tomorrow.
