9/13/2016 – The penultimate round saw few changes if any in the leaderboards. The USA played Georgia and won, with the only hiccup being Nakamura's loss to Mchedlishvili. Ukraine also defeated the Czech, while their Volokitin soars at a 2994 performance. Russia only drew India, though they still remain clear third. Remarkably, Canada is in 4th place on tiebreak. The Women's saw China barely overcome Poland, while Ukraine drew India. Russia won against Georgia and will face China for the gold. Large illustrated report with videos and GM analysis.
