Day #2

The regular game of second set proceeded in approximately equal fight and ended in a legitimate draw. Much more interesting events gone in duels with shortened time control.   Olga Kamyshleeva - Natalia Sadowska, 2 set, rapid game It was reminiscent of the regular game of first set. It would seem almost all pieces had already been exchanged but a few not the most optimal solutions of Olga led her to serious difficulties. d_2_1 53.42-37! This time Dutch demonstrates necessary composure. Lost uncareless 53.42-38? 28-33! [but not 53...28-32? 54.36-31! 27x36 55.38x27 36-41 56.27-21!!

Natalia Sadowska - Olga Kamyshleeva, 2 set, blitz game Sharp opening brought in the middlegame advantage for Polish. d_2_2 24.28-23! Active move, destroying interaction of black flanks. 24...14-20 25.34-29! 09-13? Serious error but for blitz is explainable. In conditions of limited time it is difficult to see the faithful plan 25...10-14! prohibiting 26.42-37? 27-32!! 27.38x18 14-19!! 28.23x03 12x34 29.03x01 20x49 30.39x30 25x34 31.40x29 49x46 with one piece more in macroendgame. 26.40-34?! Not the best continuation. Much stronger 26.42-37! and black cannot unit 26...10-14? 27.24-19! 13x24 28.23-18 12x34 29.39x10+. 26...13-18?? Rough strategical mistake. Stabilized position plan 26...10-14 27.45-40 13-18. 27.45-40?? Natalia does not react for kindly provided by rival chance. After simple and logical exchange 27.34-30 25x34 28.39x30 Kamyshleeva would be on the verge of strategical catastrophe, and most likely would not have been able to escape. 27...10-14. Though with the adventures of, but Olga equalized position. 28.42-37 06-11 29.37-31 08-13! Positionally strong move and simultaneously combinational provocation! d_2_3 30.24-19?? Sadowska decided that opponent missed simple tactical idea. What a naivety! Hole on the "49" will return this combination against her. Of course it was prohibited and 30.48-42 or 30.40-35 because of 30...27-32 31.38x27 22-28+. But it was possible to combine, but in other way than in the game:  30.23-19 14x23 31.26-21 17x37 32.33-28 22x42 33.43-38 42x33 34.39x06 and a draw is the most likely result here. 30...13x24 31.34-30 25x45 32.44-40 45x34 33.39x10 27-32! That is the case! 34.38x27 20-24 35.29x20 18x49 36.27x18 15x24 37.10-05 12x23 38.05x46 d_2_4 After tumultuous events the game proceeded in absolutely winning endgame for Kamyshleeva, but having few seconds on the clocks, she was unable to fix the victory. 38...11-16? Very unsuccessfully. The most quick won 38...17-22!
