Who were those players again? Here's the line-up of all teams one more time:



[TABLE=234]

Thus far, the Chinese players Wang Hao and Ni Hua and Corus B winner Sergei Movsesian are doing well. All three have a score of 4.5 out of 6. Percentually speaking, Vladimir Malakhov (4 / 5), Alexander Motylev (3,5 / 4) and Alexander Morozevich (3 / 3) are doing even better.

Not in great form are Alexei Kornev (0 / 3), Evgeny Bareev (0,5 / 3) and especially Ian Nepomniachtchi (0,5 / 5 4), but also Pavel Tregubov (1 / 5) and Zahar Efimenko (1 / 5). Anatoli Karpov has 0,5 / 3 and his team mate Viktor Korchnoi 1,5 / 5.

Here's a very attractive game from the fourth round:
