Svidler eases past Kamsky

Kamsky had blundered in the first game with black pieces from a position that experts believed he could have held on to and in the return game he proved quite unable to break the defence of Svidler and went down 0-2 in the mini-match.

Much like Svidler, David Navara also made it 2-0 against Yaroslav Zherebukh of Ukraine who was the lowest ranked player remaining in the event.

Zherebukh had some spectacular success here but was shown the ultimate way by Navara who had earlier been praised a lot for his gamesmanship.
