Kachiani-Gersinska's play seems to be a bit more extravagant than useful - the black-squared bishop on c7 is about to have as few perspectives as on e7.
Levon Aronian can take a piece after 20.f5 but black will get two pawns and some attack. Still I think it's a part of opening preparation
Vachier-Lagrave's treatment of the Scandinavian as white is not without venom - his bishop-pair might become an asset in the near future.
Petra Papp of Hungary
Jobava - Mamedyarov. This is and most definitely will be insane game. Mamedyarov could've been better after 9...Bxe3, but decided to sacrifice a piece instead
Nobody would be surprised if Dzagnidze was still following her pre-game preparation - even in such a simplified position Black has to be extremely precise in order to hold the balance.
Tough theoretical fight between Khotenashivili and Muzychuk. White didn't decide to take a pawn, but sacrificed a pawn itself
Kardelen Cemhan surely follows the latest trends in chess theory - no later than 2 days ago Aronian scored a nice win in this very original sideline of the Spanish
Maxime Vachire-Lagraeve doesn't care that much about development, but starts active play at once
A cunning way of playing from Efroimski - a reversed Berlin Defence appeared on the board!
Cmilyte signalised her intentions in the game against Mamedjarova - the g2-g4 push is coming, which wil either wreck black's central structure or weaken the position of their monarch.

Monika Socko is pawn down agianst Gunina, but a pair of bishop and better development are good compenstations
In Grischuk - Lupulescu and Andreikin - Parligras positions are identical. And it's not a transmision error, been there and checked it.
Important match Georgia-Ukraine in women section. If Ukraine wins, nothing can take the gold medal from them. If Georgia wins the situation will get a little more complicated.
Vary tactical position in Aronian-Balogh game. Seems like a theoretical preparation of Levon, since he hasn't use his time yet
Greece-France. Will France lose a first game? For now they made 15 draws and 5 wins. Greece has already lost some game, but they are playing a great tournament nonetheless. All games started calmly, but on the second board in game of Vachier-Lagraeve and Papaioannou has a potential for interesting and double edged game
Old borders of Poland and Lithuania Commonwelth. Slightly different than current borders of Poland
Ipatov - Świercz is an encounter between two World Champions under 20
