Bohrium, Tellurium, and Technetium have all qualified for the playoffs in the U2000 section.
Three of the eight teams, quite an accomplishment. Wish them all good luck.

Niobium Rd 6. To continue Niobium's playoff quest. Down 0-1 Krysto got a win. Then in the third game to be played Salvatore got a forfeit win. How could this happen. So it's 2-1 in favor of Niobium. Niobium needs just a draw to go to the playoffs. Their opponents need a win to advance. In the final position it is a dead draw but White has to continue, maybe something will happen. Instead he agrees to a draw. Here's the game.
Niobium Rd 6. Niobium needs to win the match to get to the playoffs. Their opponents need just to draw. And the situation before this game was 0-1. A must game for Niobium. I usually can't watch games while at work but the boss had left and I had to take a look. And what I first saw didn't look promising. Let's see how Ivio turned the game around and got a key win.

Selenium Rd 4. When you go down material or get a bad position there is no need to panic, lash out and make things worse. Just play good moves and make your opponent win it. Maybe he will make a mistake. Sirian does just that exactly and came away with the win.
