The longest game of the fifth round of the women's tournament in Wuxi was between two non-Chinese participants: Georgian Lela Javakhishvili and Russian Valentina Gunina.


White sacrificed a pawn and got a seemingly good compensation, but now Valentina probably overlooked that after 23...Nc5 24.Nxb4 she could have played 24...Nb3! with approximate equality.
23...Nxe4? Now Black has serious problems.
24.Bxe4 Bxe4 25.Qxe4 Nc5 26.Nxc5 Qxc5 27.Qxb7

Gunina's piece sacrifice can be recognized as interesting, but not more. At the moment, the white pieces are not too well arranged, but this is the only lead for Black.
27...Kh7! 28.Rf1! Both of the players showed accuracy in this segment. Impossible was 28.Qb8 because of 28...Rd2 29.Rf1 Rxf2 30.Rxf2 Be1.
28...Qc4?! Here, however, Valentina had to come up with 28...f6! In this case, White cannot free himself easily: 29.Qb8? Qc6 30.Bf4 Rb7 31.Nd4 Qd7!, and there is no defense against е6-е5. (In case of 28...a4 the following continuation worked: 29.Qb8 Qc6 30.Bf4.) The Georgian should have had to find the not less subtle 29.b3!, aiming not only to prevent the passing of the "a" pawn, but also pass the move to Black, creating a somewhat mutual zugzwang.
29.Qb8 Qc6 30.Bf4. White simply got a piece up. Talks about compensation can only be aroused when baring in mind the fact this game is between two women players. This last factor, combined with time trouble, as it often happens, was proved to be decisive.

51.Qe6?? Possible was to make the move for which the rook has been placed on g1: 51.g4+ Kh4 52.Rg2. Looks somewhat clumsy, but Black is helpless. For instance, 52...Qh3+ 53.Kg1 Re2, and here possible are both the prosaic 54.Qb1, and 54.Bxg5+! Kxg5 55.Qb5+ with a double strike.
51...Qxe3 52.Kh3 Qxf2 53.Qe8+ Luckily, a draw could still be found. 53...Kh6 54.Qf8+ Kg6 1/2

The leader of the tournament Tan Zhong lost against Shen Yang today, but still remained on the first line.
