World Chess Cup R4.2: Judit makes monumental effort to beat super fight from Dominguez

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Despite the high merit in all the games, it is going to be Leinier Dominguez Perez-Judit Polgar that is surely going to pass into history for Round 4.2 of the World Cup of Chess currently on in Khanty-Mansiysk! Or, what else would you say about Judit Polgar's nerves of steel, deep calculation against the rock solid defense of Leinier Dominguez Perez - all the way to 112 moves for more than five hours!

Meanwhile, we forgot to notice that the young Yaroslav Zherebukh is knocked out losing both games to David Navara, Dmitry Jakovenko is knocked out by Teimour Radjabov and Gata Kamsky has been knocked out by Peter Svidler. Now, we have some great tiebreaks coming up tomorrow just when we thought there might not be any for the fourth round. Such is the power of chess. 

Here are all the great games of Round 2.2 with the game links to the official website. Enjoy. Don't forget to tune in for the high-definition live broadcast of all the action from the World Cup of Chess tomorrow also.
