Peter Svidler defeated Boris Gelfand in a rapid match 5-3. One of the last day encounters decided the outcome of the match. In an approximately equal middle game Russian GM played better, gained an advantage and converted it successfully. 

SVIDLER - GELFAND

17.a4!? (not an obligatory, rather temporary pawn sacrifice) 17...fxe4 18.a5 Nd5 19.a6! b6 20.Qc2. Black didn't find an optimal way to defend: after 20...c5 21.dxc5 bxc5 22.Bc4 Nb6 23.Qxe4 Nxc4 24.Qxc4 White's initiative is now obvious.

24...Rf5 25.Ra5, and instead of 25...Raf8 26.Rb5! Black might have replied with 25...Rd8!?. Gelfand would still have resources to defend but the pressure White put couldn't be resisted. Russian won the match 4.5 - 2.5, the last game of the match which couldn't change anything finished in a calm draw.

The Swiss comeptition  held in the framework of Gideon Japhet was won by IM Alexandr Kaspi (earlier known as Aleksandar Serebrjanik from Odessa). He surpassed GMs like Huzman Alexander, Soffer Ram and Gruenfeld Yehuda.царку"
