The 2nd day of the 3rd game started with GOUDA's sealed move ; 23.P*2c .

(diagram 2)

HABU backed his promoted Bishop with 24...+B-5e , and GOUDA also promoted the Bishop with 25.B-5f+ . HABU immediately exchanged the promoted Bishops with 25...+Bx5f . Both players dropped their Bishops again and roughly attacked each other . After some moves , GOUDA seemed to get an advantage . But next move after 53...R-3g+ was a problem !

57.Kx6i N-5h+
58.Gx5h Bx5h+
59.Kx5h +R-4g
60.K-6h L*6g
(diagram 3)

GOUDA's move 54.K-7h is a bad move ! He thought he could mate HABU's king with following moves ; 54...Sx9f , 55.N*6d Px6d , 56.S*6c Kx6c , 57.R*8c K-5b , 58.+Bx5a Kx5a , 59.Rx5c+ . But in this line , GOUDA need one more Gold or Silver in hand . This mistake caused GOUDA's lost game . Instead of this move , GOUDA should move 54.N*5g , the game would be still difficult and he might won the game .
