The two top-100 globally rated grandmasters
played into an endgame in which Moiseenko was made to play defensively,
eventually falling a pawn behind in material that lasted until his
resignation on move 82.

Both were contenders coming into the
nation’s chess championship but Moiseenko’s prospects dimmed having lost a
second game in a row.

Defending Ukrainian and former world
champion Ruslan Ponomariov was outplayed in the endgame against Yuriy Kuzubov
who is rated 100 points lower than him. Their match lasted just over 100 moves
in a grueling endgame that saw Ponomariov give up a knight for two pawns in a
slightly inferior position. The upset put Ponomoariov a full point behind the
leader.
