One of the turning points of the confrontation of last year’s champion and one of this year’s strong contender for the top was surely IM Umut Atakişi’s game against GM Barış Esen. IM Atakişi’s blunder left no room for him to win against GM Esen.
After 2 consequative losses yesterday GM Ivanchuk played against GM Mamedyarov. Following Mamedyarov’s blunder, Ivanchuk ended his losing streak and won.
