The game continued 35. Rc7! Rc8? 36. Bf5! To this move, Fedorowicz couldn't contain himself. On chess.fm, he exclaimed, "That's a big shot! That's a big shot!" Rxf5 37. Rxc8+ Kh7 38. Rh1 1-0.
The surprise for the day was Kazsimdhanov's downing of Anand. An unbelievable result but bolsters ever further my prediction of a Topalov victory in this tournament. But it's early days and anything can happen.
And at last, Leko ekes out a win, this time against Polgar. I suppose, if he was going to win a game, it'd have to be against the woman.
What can we say about Morozevich? In a position thought by many commentators to be a plus for him, he made a poor decision with 41. Rxa6. The move surrendered the c-file. As a result, Svidler emerged with a well coordinated R+Q combo. With those pieces and skilful play, Svidler slowly corralled Moro's king and that was that.
Tips for round 5:
Anand – Leko, .5-.5
Polgar – Morozevich, 0-1
Svidler – Topalov, .5-.5
Adams – Kasimdzhanov, 1-0
