The Ukrainian GM Yaroslav Zherebukh outplayed his Spanish opponent Vallejo in Round 5 of Aeroflot Open. 

Zherebukh chose 7.h4 in Winawer Variation of French defence, which recently brought him vicotry over Ray Robson in Moscow Open. However, this game didn't repeat the one mentioned above as long as Spanish player preferred to play in different way.

Later Ukrainian GM sacrificed his C pawn and managed to activate his pieces. Trying to take over the initiative Vallejo decided to sacrifice his piece on 20th move. Zherebukh not only kept the situation under his control in an extreme time truble, but he also managed to convert his advantage into a point.

Maxim Rodstein, Anton Korobov and Hrant Melkumyan lead with 4/5 each. In Round 6 Korobov will face Rodstein with White, while Melkumyan will play with Black against Fabiano Caruana who is half a point behind him.

Take a look at the games of the 5th round.
