Amsterdam: At the Same Time Two Games of Round 4 Have Been Adjourned

None of the games of Round 4 of the ACP Golden Classic reached the logical finish. Kamsky - Ivanchuk encounter finished in a quick draw, while Emil Sutovsky and Anna Muzychuk used the right to adjourn the game. 


The Israeli player wrote down move 41 in this position which looks approximately equal. Maybe the rivals will find some playing sources in further analyses.


White just suggested the exchange of the rooks 48.Rd2. Now Anna will probably be looking for the best way for holding the endgame. 

The games will be resumed only on July 21st which is another free day at the competition.
