Russian lead with 6 points out of 7

The only decisive but the intensest game of the 7th round of the Governor’s Cup that takes place in Saratov, Russia was finished by Alexander Morozevich's victory over Evgeny Alekseev which means now he has six points out of seven.  After the fourth round Alexander forestalled his nearest rivals by two points.  

The fate of the game was sealed in the endgame.

MOROZEVICH - ALEKSEEV

55...Ne5?

Black should have tried 55…Ne3! with a will to draw:

A) 56.Nxg5+ Ke7 57.Re6+ (57…Nc4 would be on 57.Nf3) 57...Kd7 58.Rxe3 Rxb7+ 59.Ka2 f2 60.Rf3 Rb4 61.Ka3 Rg4!, and you have two threats – taking the knight and 62…Rg3.

B) 56.a5 f2 57.Rf6+ Ke7 58.a6 Nd5!! to queen f2 pawn with the further taking of the rook doesn’t seem a good plan because White king would leave “b” line and queen “a” paw by a6-a7) 59.Rxf2 Nc7 with a drawn position

C) 56.Rb4 (the idea is a4-a5-a6 and at the same time preventing the move …Nc4) 56...Nd5,  White can hardly win in this position).

In any case Alekseev’s choice scarcely helps Black to save.

56.a5

56...Nc4

56…f2 will be followed by 57.Rf6+! and 58.a6!. in order to have a chance to play 58…Nd5! Black shouldn’t have put their knight on e3.

57.Rf6+! Ke7 58.a6 Na5 59.Rb6!
and the decisive return of the rook

59...Kd7 60.a7 1-0
