8. IM Illingworth (2439) – Arias (2126) 0-1
Oh how the mighty have fallen, one day you’re making a draw with Movsesian and the next day you’re losing to someone rated ~300 points lower than you. In this game white was doing well up until he completely blundered and threw the game away. Black finds the best moves and by then it’s too late for white to recover.

A back and forth game that eventually leads to black making a crucial mistake in a complex position. After some hiccups white is able to convert.
