Bansko Open Round Five
Top board drawn, six players leading with 4.5 points each

GM Boris Savchenko and IM Tamir Nabaty drew their game on the top board of the 5th round of the Bansko Grand Chess Open 2010, and IM Nanko Dobrev was defeated by GM Vladimir Georgiev, thus there are no more players with perfect score in the tournament.

Piotr Korobkov, the untitled but decently rated player from Ukraine, outwitted the 3rd-seeded GM Vasil Spasov, while GM Ioannis Nikolaidis won the Greek derby against GM Athanasios Mastrovasilis.

GM Avetik Grygorian, the reigning Armenian champion, got the better off from his encounter with IM Miodrag Perunovic. After the game he commented: “In the morning I thought that it’s been a long time since I played my favourite King’s Indian defence, and I decided to use it today, especially as I thought it would have been a surprise for my opponent. Later I found that Miodrag guessed which opening I’ll choose, but he misplayed the moves’ order and got worse position, which he couldn’t save from that moment on.”
