One of the most anticipated battles in the quarterfinal round at the Leaders’ Cup 14 tournament was between Iryna Pirozhnik (Belarus) and Ivan Rybka (Russia).

Thus, after the first two survey days at the tournament, the Advisor from Belarus has a 12-point upper hand over her opponent from Russia. We will find out which Advisor makes it into the final stage in 5 days.
Note that Iryna Pirozhnik won against Petar Stamnikj (Macedonia) in the 1/8 round, whereas Ivan Rybka sidelined Nicolae Baluta (Romania) with an almost 3-point difference. Thus, both contestants won a right to compete on in the quarterfinal round.
