So today another four finals will be played, as only the winners will stay in the race to become the European Champion of 2019.
The winners of yesterday's matches need another victory today to stay in contention for the championship.

The hardest opponent today will be the temperature, as we will have a really hot day with temperatures close to 40 degrees Celsius.

The first game to finish on this extremely hot day was the game for which I was a scribe, after coming back from a short break Dusan had resigned.

The second game to finish was the one played between Artem Kachanovskyi and Kajmin Vjacheslav. Here Kajmin had to resign after a big fight over liberties, which he lost in the end.

Inside with the help of air conditioners and fans the heat is just about bearable. The temperature at this moment (14:00) is just over 38 degrees celsius and still rising...!

Two games are still being played and the players look tired from the heat. Even the scribes are suffering, some had to change into a new and dry t-shirt.
It seems that today the silence is more a product of the fiercesome heat than from being concentrated.
