All the key matches of the decisive round of the Gibraltar chess Festival are over. 

Bologan failed to brake English GM's persistent defence, which means he couldn't convert his extra pawn and therefore, he didn't join two leaders of the tournament Hou Yifan and Nigel Short.

Emil Sutovsky, on the contrary, grabbed victory in a rare Queen endgame against Erdos. 

As a result, Hou Yifan and Nigel Short scored 8/10 each, which means the play-off is required. The play-off will start at 18:00 CET (21:00 MSK Time). 

Mikhael Adams, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Viorel Bologan and Emil Sutovsky scored 7.5/10 each.
