Ranked 40th in the world,
Oleksandr Moiseenko won with the black pieces against former Ukraine champion Yevhen Miroshnychenko of Donetsk.

Another former Ukraine champion, Andriy Volokityn
bested fellow Lviv grandmaster Yuriy Vovk, also with the black pieces.
Volokityn defended for the most part of the match, but managed to simplify the
position to a superior end game that he converted to victory.

And Anton Korobov won in a sharp game with
white against Yuriy Kuzubov who fell into time trouble and had less than five
minutes on his clock after the 14th move. This was one of the most
exciting matches of the round.
