With a splendind attacking victory against Sergey Movesesian, current number 3 in the world Alexander Morozevich took the lead in the "Bosna 2008" tournament. Annotated game.

The 38th edition of the traditional Bosna tournament is held under the auspices of Canton of Sarajevo and Government of Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, from May 22 until June 2, 2008. It's organised by the Sarajevo Chess Club ?¢‚Ǩ?ìBosna?¢‚Ǩ? and the venue is the Concert Hall of House of Army.

This year's edition is a six-player double round-robin with an average Elo of 2694. (Next to this "A" event there's also a "B" tournament, with a 2445 average Elo.) The rate of play is 90 minutes for 40 moves + 15 minutes for the rest of the game + 30 seconds additional time for each move from the first move.

It's good to see Morozevich play again; this year he only played the Amber tournament and the Russian Team Championship. Of course he's the big favorite in Bosnia and no doubt these expectations will be substantiated. Current standings after three rounds:

Here's Morozevich's win of yesterday (here in a separate window):
