Minsk: Jobava trying to catch Russian GM

In the leaders' clash at Bronstein Memorial Daniil Dubov defeated Alexander Khalifman and took a solo lead. 

The former FIDE champion chose Benko gambit which has been oftenly played by his rival. Daniil applied some interesting ideas for white and managed to maintain a slight advantage. 

DUBOV - KHALIFMAN

The threat is f2-f4. Khalifman decided to look for salvation in complications:
24...Nc5 It's hard to find an answer to 24...Qxc3 25.bxc3 Rxb1 26.Rxb1 Nd3. 
25.f4 Nxe4? Black should have played 25...Qxc3 26.bxc3 Rxb1 27.Rxb1 Ned7.
26.Nxe4 Dubov didn't find 26.Qxb4! Rxb4 27.fxe5 Nxd2 28.Bc3 Nxb1 29.Bxb4 Rb8 30.a3 Nxa3 31.bxa3 Bxe5 with a winning endgame. His choice isn't bad either.  
26...Nf3+ 27.Qxf3 Bxd4+ 28.Ne3 Bxb2 29.f5

29...Bxa1? Is it good or bad but it should have defended after 29...Qa3 30.Rxb2 Qxb2 31.Re1.
30.Rxb4 Rxb4 31.f6! White is winning: it's impossible to stop the queen and the knight. Khalifman resigned on move 1-0

Now Dubov's nearest rival is Baadur Jobava who defeated Igor Kovalenko. Dubov and Jobava will face each other in the next round.
