Dmitry Jakovenko defeated Vassily Ivanchuk in the return game of the 1/16 finals to advance to the next round. It's first time throughout the World Cup that he avoided the tiebreaks and thus got a rest day.

"When you are playing for the 8th day in a row, you are already unable to push, - Dmitry laughs. - You just play as you can and see what happens."

Below is the commentary Jakovenko gave us (in Russian)

"It was a complicated game. My rival sacrificed his queen which required a lot of calculations from me. It seems I was finding all the strongest moves. I didn't think his sacrifice was forced - Ivanchuk had other options for sure, he was just slightly worse. After the sacrifice I already thought that White wasn't at risk of losing at all in case of accurate play. Well, only if White goes too far and blunders some tactics. Overall, I considered Black's chances for a draw as good, but looking back at how the game developed, I am not really sure when he could have improved his play."
