Russia held

Peter Svidler
Apart from a convincing victory by the USA team over Egypt, the other matches were very close. Aronian beat Karjakin in the 2-2 draw between Armenia and Russia, while Peter Svidler scored Russia's victory. The other matches were narrow victories 2.5-1.5, with Israel and Ukraine both edging home with one win and three draws. This was equally true of Hungary's victory over Azerbaijan with Judit Polgar being the heroine.
