The third round results were as follows:
India 2.5-1.5 Azerbaijan
(Average ratings: IND 2641 AZE 2712) Sasikiran 1-0 Gashimov
Harikrishna 0.5-0.5 Radjabov
Ganguly 1-0 Guseinov
Geetha 0-1 Mamedyarov
Turkey 0.5-3.5 Armenia
Russia 3-1 USA
Israel 2.5-1.5 Brazil
Egypt 2.5-1.5 Greece
A great result for the Egyptians. Maybe the Greeks did too much celebrating last night?
A curiosity is that nine matches have ended 2.5-1.5, but as yet there are none that have been drawn 2-2.
Only one player has 3/3, Mamedyarov of Azerbaijan.

Obviously the leader board is close at the moment, with Armenia just getting their nose ahead of the pack largely due to their third round demolition of the hosts.
