Things get more and more interesting before the last round of the elite Reggio tournament. After Morozevich - Ivanchuk was drawn, Nakamura was defeated by Giri in the middlegame, while Caruana took an upper hand on Vitiugov in an intense struggle. Russian made a decisive mistake on the 37th move.


37...Rgc8? (37...Rd8! looks a way better), and the position from worse went to worst. 38.Ra5! Na6 39.Qd6! Ka8 40.Rb6! White and win after several moves. 

Before the last round Morozevich and Giri caught Nakamura and three of them share first place with 15 points. Caruana is one point back of them. 

Pairings of the last round: Giri - Caruana, Vitiugov - Morozevich, Ivanchuk - Nakamura. Any of the games can turn to be decisive in the fight for the first place. 

Regardless of tomorrow's results Ivanchuk takes fifth place and Vitiugov occupies sixth.
