THE LAST THREE MUSKETEERS STOPPED (by GM Vlado Kovacevic)

The game between Kurajica and Rukavina reminded of the famous song by the popular singer Djordje Balasevic. Just like Vasa Ladacki did in the song, Kurajica had everything and nothing at the same time, because he did not have the one he loved. He was pushing Rukavina systematically and once more Rukavina proved to be a tough nut to crack. At one moment Kurajica made a mistake, he let Rukavina make a counterattack following which his position was crashed and he drooped just like Vasa Ladacki did in the famous song. Vladimir Zhelnin and Vlada Kovacevic played to draw after a tough, tactical fight, as well as Miso Cebalo and Nikolai Pushkov. Krunoslav Hulak defeated Dusan Rajkovic who missed to build unbreakable position at the endgame. Vlastimil Jansa was like a guest at Oleg Chernikov's breakfast buffet. He ate everything that was not stuck to the board.
Rashkovsky, Komljenovic, Vaisser, Rukavina, Hulak and Jansa are at the top with 4,5 points.
In the Women's Section, there was a change at the top. The Russian Ludmila Saunina defeated Sathe Thipsay from India and took the leading position. The legendary Nona Gaprindashvili defeated Switlana Miednikova. Saunina has 4,5 points, Gaprindashvili has 4 points and 8 players are following them with 3,5 points.
