12.Ng5 made Sargissian paused for a while.
First hour has passed. So far no results.
One can always trust Nigel Short for some unique, fancy ideas! 10...Rg8!?(preparing g5, h5) no boring chess!
Petkov provokes Sargissian with 12.Ng5 !? to get him play h7-h6. This game must lead to some tactical blows being exchanged.
In Topalov-Aronian we have Dragon-like structure with black fighting fot center by 13...f5 and white putting the pressure on black`s queen side by preparing to b4-b5 later on.
In woman tournament second seeded Russia is playing against Czech Republic. Though they're not in their optimal setup they surely will be a candidates for victory
The idea of Sargissian Ne8-c7-b5 with control over d4 is now visible. And probable entrance to c3 square.
It's not going to be an easy match for first seeded Ukarinian team - Azerbaijan team against whom they are playing consists of a really good players. Only Ushenina seems to have an opening advantage

GM Heberla plays in calm manner, playing the legendary Nigel Short is a big day in Bartek`s career.
We have combat for the center and initiative in Volokitin-Dragun game, 13.Nd4 puts the pressure already on black defense
Ivanisevic reacted with immediate 9...Nd4 and 10...e5, as the alternative was 9...0-0 and later Nd7 and Rb8
11.Nd2 would be more risky for white in Topalov-Aronian game, now after 11.Be3 we have more positional battle.
In Petkov-Sargissian black played rare idea of 9...Ne8 instead of 9...Nd7. It`s a classic structure that was played already by Fischer in 60s. White attack on the king site while black take space on the queen side.
England - Poland III looks quite close at the moment with Gdanski-Howell Berlin Wall and McShane- Tazbir Ruy Lopez
Scheveningen in Svidler- Ivanisevic game with 9.Qd2 !? and long castle is porbably the sharpest way the white can choose.
