All adjourned games have finished in Amsterdam. The only real fight happened in the game between Emil Sutovsky and Krishnan Sasikiran. The Israeli sharpened the game in a complex position, but it still ended as a draw out of all three possible results. Unfortunately, almost all moves of that game were lost in the live transmission; we'll publish the moves here once they become available.

Gata Kamsky, who gained the expected 1.5 points today (a win over Sasikiran and a draw with Muzychuk), is now half a point behind Vassily Ivanchuk. In the last round tomorrow Kamsky will play with black against Jobava, while Ivanchuk will also have black against Muzychuk.
