On the 6th of June one of the leaders from «Baba Sy» group Artem Ivanov (Ukraine) commented his victory as follows:
"This round was lucky for me. I won the sportsman from Belarus Andrei Tolchykau. I thought this would be draw game, but I was lucky. In general the championship runs good for me. My position either victory, either draw. I try not to loose. But there are three rounds till the end of the semifinal and everything could happen. Anyway I will try to get in the top ten players."
Take into account that after 6 rounds of the championship Ukrainian draughts player Artem Ivanov with 9 points is one of the leaders of his group.
