Sergei Azarov, ranked 32 in the starting list, became the sole leader with 6/7 after beating Arkadij Naiditsch.

Shakhriyar Mamedyarov had started with 6 (!) draws, but apparently he used his rest day to wake up from his “draw-sleep”. He scored a quick win against Bulgarian youngster GM Grigor Grigorov (2489) in 32 moves and 2,5 hours of play.

Round 8

The 8th round started with another forfeit as a result of the zero-tolerance rule. None less than second seed Shakhriyar Mamedyarov didn't arrive in time at his board, and got a zero. The Azeri GM said he arrived "only 10 seconds" late, but the tournament bulletin speaks of "more than a minute". It was a coincidence that his opponent Shota Azaladze had been forfeited himself in one of his previous games.

At the moment of writing there are three leaders. Two of them are representatives of the Russian school and one is Armenian: Vladimir Malakhov, Maxim Matlakov and Vladimir Akopian. Malakhov, who played so strongly in the 2009 World Cup, beat the sole leader Azarov.
