  plang: Yusupov scored 8.5-3.5 on first board leading Germany to a surprising silver medal finish. The line with 4..Bb4+ has scored well for Black; the White queen bishop has trouble finding a good square. 13 Ne5 was a new move; 13 a4 and 13 b3 had been played previously. Apparently, Van Wely did not like 19 Qb3..fxg 20 hxg..Rxd4 21 Rxd4..Bc5 with sharp play; instead he sacrificed his queen with 19 Qxc4?!. Van Wely should have exchanged pawns with 26 bxc prior to moving his rook to c1. 45 f3..Qe2+ 46 Kh3..Qxe3 47 Rb7 would have been a tougher defense. Black missed a quick win with 46..Kf6 47 g4..b2 48 Kg3..Qg1+ 49 Kf3..Qd1+ 50 Kg3..Qd6+. White, however, missed the best chance with 47 Bxg6+..Kxg6 48 Rxb2 though that would likely have not changed the final result.
