Round 5: Cherniack-Martirosov 0-1

Vadim Martirosov

It was not a good night to be named Alex. White blunders first the exchange and then a piece. As a result, Vadim remains undefeated and within striking distance of the leader.

I hallucinated after 24.b4 in that after 24...Ne6 25.Qd7 Rd8 26.Qe7 Vadim couldn't take Rook on c5 with the Knight because of the "loose" Rook on d8 -- I overlooked that it was protected by the Queen on b6!
