Congrats to Yuri Solodovnichenko for remaining one of only 3 players still perfect at the Dubai Open through 4 rounds. Being just the 27th seed, this is pretty impressive. In Round 5, he'll have black against 2nd seed Fedoseev (3.5).

He has also gained a decent 9.3 rating points so far.

Y Solodovnichenko vs A Giri, 2015

Unfortunately, "Vandoeuvre-Les-Nancy" still lost to "Bischwiller" 5-3, but a 2 point loss is not bad for a team rated 162 points lower.
