"I Like It in Chita!" Evgeny Tomashevsky Takes Lead in Superfinal

After three rounds of the Russian Superfinal, Evgeny Tomashevsky is the sole leader.

At the press conference, he admitted that his main task against Igor Lysyj was to "lure the opponent into a battle". "As Black, Igor has an exceptionally solid repertoire", admitted Evgeny. "In the last Superfinal, he did not lose a single game as Black, and he rarely does so in general..."

But although Lysyj managed to surprise his opponent with the Semi-Tarrasch Defence, the opening went in White's favour. Black should seek an improvement around moves 17-20, but once White got his pawn to d6, there was no doubt about the assessment of the position - White has a stable advantage. 

Then Tomashevsky missed several virtually forced wins, and near the time control, missed the strong defensive idea 31...Rf6! "In seconds, I managed to find 34.Qb5, which luckily turned out to be brilliant", - laughed the hero of the start of the event. Objectively, Black's position should be tenable, but, in Evgeny's words, in practice only a computer is likely to hold it. 

"It is too early to draw great conclusions after three rounds, - commented the winner. "The only thing I can say is that I like it in Chita!".
