The return games of the FIDE World Cup Semifinals were played in Khanty-Mansiysk on September 27.

Teimour Radjabov and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave had a discussion in the English Opening. After Black rejected to exchange the queens early in the game, White created a powerful attack on the kingside. The French grandmaster defended resourcefully and saved his king, but lost a pawn in process, while White kept a dominating position with strong pressure on the kingside. Black kept avoiding exchanging the queens, and by the 40th move White's attack was already decisive. In a hopeless position Vachier-Lagrave blundered a rook and resigned on the 45th move.



 

Yu Yangyi and Ding Liren played the Nimzo-Indian Defense and up to a certain point followed an earlier game between Yu Yangyi and Nikita Vitiugov. On the 18th move, Ding Liren improved Black's play. The game simplified, and the players agreed to a draw in an equal queen ending on the 30th move, having spent less than an hour at the board.



 


A tie-break between Ding Liren and Yu Yangyi will be played on September 28. Yu Yangyi has White in the first game.

27 сентября в Ханты-Мансийске были сыграны вторые партии полуфинальных матчей.

Теймур Раджабов и Максим Вашье-Лаграв вели дискуссию в английском начале, где черные отказались от размена ферзей на ранней стадии партии, после чего белым удалось организовать мощную атаку на короля противника. Французский гроссмейстер изобретательно отразил неминуемую гибель своего монарха, однако остался без пешки, к тому же белые сохранили атаку и продолжили раскачивать королевский фланг соперника. Черные не раз отказывались менять ферзей, и к 40-му ходу им уже нужно было находить чуть ли не единственные ходы. В безнадежной позиции Максим Вашье-Лаграв зевнул ладью и сразу сдался.

 


 

Юй Янъи и Дин Лижэнь разыграли защиту Нимцовича и до определенного момента шли по партии Юя с Никитой Витюговым, однако на 18-м ходу Дин усилил игру черных, и позиция упростилась. В равном ферзевом эндшпиле после 30-го хода соперники согласились на ничью. Партия длилась чуть меньше часа.

 


   


Тай-брейк за выход в финал состоится 28 сентября. Белыми фигурами начнет Юй Янъи.
